An EOG Pointe Coupee drilling permit has been filed. The well will be located: Sec 29 – Twn 04S – Range 09E.
This looks like a deep downdip test of the Austin Chalk.
Of course, I understand they can stop at any point. And if they have all that good seismic data why even advertise the depth they are willing to go. And there is a lot of data from existing wells all around the drill site (for instance the Wilbert well about a mile to east, and now abandoned). So far as I know there is no 3D seismic in that area, to the south west (Judge Digby Field, for instance), yes but not up near the Mississippi river.
