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: Aug 19

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.

Thank you for sharing your knowledge RM.   We appreciate you.

No new drilling (unless they deepen the original well). But they will have to drill out plugs that were set when the original well was P&A'd.

Figure they plan to perforate this old well bore at whatever level (assuming that casing has good cement behind pipe) and test that formation. This may include stimulation efforts.

Comment by David Crockett on August 18, 2019 at 3:35pm

So, they don't have to do any type of drilling or fracking, but just take over the old well?  

Comment by Rock Man on August 18, 2019 at 3:13pm

Present operator is re-entering the old Moncrief Martin deep well that was plugged in 2010 (SN 154571). Description in SONRIS is exactly what is saying, I.e. they found the plugged well location, dug down to expose the top cap on the casing, cut that off and installed a wellhead.
