Skip's post Oil and Gas News Locations & Completions for April 30 lists the following permit for Natchitoches Parish followed by his comment below. This is potentially very exciting news for the area.
Brammer Engineering Inc, Olympia Minerals, 001, Sec. 16, T8N, R8W, Wildcat, 4850' MD, Eagle Ford Shale.
"And it is permitted as an oil well. I think there may be some leasing activity associated with this permit. Natchitoches members should watch this well."
Can anyone elaborate further on the matter at this point, or are we in for yet more suspense?
The drill bit will tell the tale. The permit states there has never been a well permitted or drilled in section 16 or section 9. To my knowledge there has never been one drilled in my section (20) either. I can tell you this, there are sea shells on top of the ground in my garden, I have plowed them for years. This whole area had to be under water millions of years ago. Call it wishful thinking if you want but that is a fact. Based on this and the fact this area has never been drilled, my crystal ball will continue to say otherwise until proven that it is cracked.
Hi Les, two questions. First, the second map you posted... the numbers beside the well symbols... I assumed serial numbers? The one for the new well does match the SONRIS serial number. The ones for 9n-10w do not.
Second, how, exactly, do you create a map like that? Is there a map on SONRIS where you can view all wells in/around a certain section?
HY, you can create a custom map by using the GIS function within Sonris that includes the wells wihin the area.
The numbers are the well Serial Numbers. The two shown in T9N-R10W appear to be typos and should be 162553 & 242154.
