A place for discussion of oil and gas mineral activity in Avoyelles Parish which sits over the Austin Chalk, Tuscaloosa Trend and other formations.

Location: Avoyelles Parish, Louisiana
Members: 87
Latest Activity: Jan 21

The earliest record of a permit for an oil well in Avoyelles Parish is June 19, 1920 for the Bordelon well near Goudeau. Only four wells were permitted in Avoyelles in the 1920s, with two near Cocoville and one near Fifth Ward, In 1933 the Haas oil field was discovered south of Bunkie which set off an oil boom in this part of the parish. The Haas field still produces oil today. In the 1960s, there were several wells permitted during a second oil boom for the parish. In the 1970s, much of the parish was leased for the Tuscaloosa Trend which did not fan out. In 2009, drilling began in the deeper Austin Chalk formations, with exploration of the Tuscaloosa Shale coming soon. GEOLOGICAL LAYORS BENEATH AVOYELLES: Frio ~3,000 feet; Sparta at about 6.500 ft.; Wilcox ~12,000 feet; Austin Chalk ~15,300 feet; Eagle Ford ~15,800 feet; TMS below Eagle Ford.

Turner Bayou Chalk Project Well Updates

Rabalais 35 No.1 (8.8% Working Interest / 6.6% NRI)

The Rabalais 35 No.1 well Odenburg (south of Simmesport), in the Turner Bayou Chalk project, is currently flowing back fluids injected into the well during completion and drilling mud. Flow back of these fluids is expected to be completed in the next 7-10 days at which time the hydrostatic head (load) will be off the formation and the well can be flow tested for production.

First Tuscaloosa Well in Avoyelles?

Heard from a landman that the First Tuscaloosa Well in Avoyelles might be drilled in the second quarter of 2012.  Somewhere in the center of Avoyelles, where they have done leasing, perhaps near Hamburg. Not sure how accurate the info is.  No permits yet at Sonris.

So far, only Austin Chalk horizontal wells (four) have been drilled in Avoyelles, so it will be interesting to see how this new search in a different formation will unfold. Has anyone heard anything else in Avoyelles?
