Pennington has filed two additional Austin Chalk production units - Profit Island and Morganza Fields.
Surprisingly small units for horizontal development.

Agree on that - they will be limited to less than 5000' effective laterals. Considering the AC target depth (16,000' to 17,000' TVD), one would think that longer laterals would be desired to optimize their efforts.
These will be interesting to watch.
They are playing off what they saw in the AC in their Tuscaloosa wells that have been drilled in these proposed unit areas. Logs show a thick AC section with a robust Lower AC interval with high resistivity. I figure that they saw some decent hydrocarbon shows in this lower AC section. Probably a very gassy interval considering depth and theoretical thermal maturity.
A plus for Pennington is that they have gas production facilities and pipeline times already in this area due to their deeper Tuscaloosa production.
Thanks for analysis and color, RM.
There is some offset production here suggesting this could be pretty "oily"!
RM - curious to know your thoughts on the Harmon well log section (lithology and high resistivity thickness) vs this area where Pennington is filing these units.
As you said, these will be very interesting to watch.
Sounds to me that Pennington is gonna make entries to the zones from existing Tuscaloosa Trend deep gas wells. Not so sure that they will do horizontal but more of perforations to see it there is oil present in the Austin Chalk. Then they may do some short legs. Labarre and LaCour are just west of Brunsiwick 001 that well stopped at 13,000 not making it into the Austin Chalk at all. Burnsiwick did have license to go to 17,000 and did not do it. EOG chickened out on Brunswick 001.
That could be their low cost approach to see how this AC section performs. Without checking the files, I would figure that there is 5.5" casing in these wells with good cement covering the AC section.
My prediction here would be gas and condensate plus NGL's - not oil.
Check the files regarding casing by simply clicking on the well serial number in blue. That takes you to the SONRIS well file. Clicking again on the serial number in blue there takes you to the well reports in the Document Access portion of SONRIS.
I will try to look at that when I get some down time. Thanks
You're welcome, RM, but I wish to point out that did not post that just for you. It is a reminder for members that changes to the database operation have made it even easier for the layman to access information. Those that read you casing comment and are curious can look for themselves. Kudos to the SONRIS staff.
Horizontals were drilled at this depth back in the 90's not too far from here, they were just never frac'd but had nice oil production from natural fractures. I wonder what a vertical well frac'd here would do!?
RH, wow thanks for pointing out the AF Harmon well. I just checked, that unfracked horizontal well produced 270,000 bbls of oil in the first year! Got to figure a fracked vertical in this same area could tap into that a similar fractured formation and produce those types volumes.
