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.

preston,

I have no idea, however we are near Evergreen and are leased. I have family there, and they tell me that the well near Goudeau is producing and there are two more permitted. Not sure if they are in Avoyelles or the tip of St. Laundry?

We have had a couple of offers to buy our Royalty interests (Certainly not interested in that!!) Also we got  notice that someone was going to be doing more 3-D Seismograph work  in our area and on our property. Certainly seems to be interest in Avoyelles, whether or not it comes to fruition, remains to be seen.

Does anybody know if there is any plan on drilling the Austin Chalk in Avoyelles parishes are they abandon it and moving to St. Landry parishes

The Martin Companies own forest lands and a lot of minerals across central LA.  Their servitude and fee minerals are the base assets of Indigo Resources.  Indigo is an active developer in NW LA drilling Haynesvlle Shale and Cotton Valley wells.

I see that they are actually re-entering serial number 154571 for the Avoyelles well that was permitted today
