Thank you for your comments which I agree with.  My daddy, who was very wise, once teased me saying I was a dilettante!  He was right and this applies to my expertise on oil and gas.  Like the song said, "you've forgotten more than I'll ever know."  Rock Man and Skip LOL!

Comment by Rock Man on April 15, 2019 at 10:34am

I have to agree with Skip on this, i.e. the La AC is not a major chip in the whole O&G world and it is only a very small piece of a deal like this. In addition to the "shale" impact in areas like the Permian Basin, Anadarko;s natural gas assets in Africa are HUGE for Chevron's LNG plans.

I see the LA AC at best being a "niche" play due to there being a lot of heterogeneity in the target section. But some good areas can still be "discovered" and exploited. Similar to so many ways to the Eagle Ford in Texas - originally thought to be a "blanket" play that has evolved in a patchwork quilt of very good to below average areas (due to subsurface conditions). Really no different from almost any of these "shale plays".

John, I don't think there is one all encompassing answer.  As to the LA Austin Chalk, I don't think much will change as Chevron and Anadarko are not players.  The real question being batted about by the energy pundits is whether the Chevron acquisition will kick off a round of M&A with the other majors.  Even if one of the LA AC players were to be acquired, I wouldn't expect any major change in the exploration of the prospective area.

Comment by John M Santamaria on April 15, 2019 at 10:16am

May be getting "ahead of my skis," Would like opinions about Chevron buying Anadarko.  Could this influence our prospects for the Austin Chalk in Avoyelles?  Also mentioned that they could possibly also buy  EOG.  Although it's primarily considered a shale purchase it seems the prospects of the Chalk compared to the Shale in this area are more lucrative.

I see that Torrent has a permit to drill a well in Avoyelles Parish. Two south, 5 east, section 03. In bayou jack north. 15624 feet

Looks as if the E & W boundaries are being tested both above and below the reef, respectively? My guess is that on the Eastern end someone might test the downdip (Fairway D) portion of Kirk's LAMS Stack Play? Hope these operators bring their A teams. GEAUX TIGERS!!!

I received an e-mail with this yesterday, labeled Tuscaloosa Trend.  It was not an attachment but maybe direct from Amelia.

I also just clicked on it at my own posting, had no problem opening.

Rockman maybe try getting there through ameliaresources.com and go to the bottom of the page where it says blog. Hopefully there will be no problems with that website.
