Houston firm reports find in Tuscaloosa Marine Shale

by Jennifer Larino, Staff Writer

December 9th, 2011 · No Comments · Blog

Houston-based Indigo Minerals announced today that it has struck pay dirt in one of the newest stretches of shale oil and gas in Louisiana to start drawing industry attention.

In a statement through its Louisiana subsidiary, Indigo II Louisiana Operating, the company said its first horizontal well in the Louisiana Eagle Ford Shale, also known as the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, resulted in oil and liquid natural gas finds. The 2.7 million-acre play spans central and southeast Louisiana and a section of southwest Mississippi.

The Indigo well, in Rapides Parish, flowed at a rate of about 543 barrels of oil per day during recent testing. To put that into perspective, the BP oil well that blew out in the Gulf of Mexico last April flowed at rate of 53,000 barrels per day before being capped in July, according to final estimates.

Even so, the Indigo discovery reinforces industry belief that newer hydraulic fracturing techniques, which pump water and chemicals deep into rocks to push out natural gas and oil, can reach central Louisiana shale oil and natural gas reserves once thought too costly to tap.

The find also shows the presence of valuable oil and liquid natural gas reserves. That could make the play more attractive than the Haynesville Shale to the north, which produces largely “dry” natural gas, or gas that contains no liquid hydrocarbons.

Indigo has assembled nearly 260,000 net acres in the Louisiana Eagle Ford. Canadian driller Encana Corp. and Devon Energy Corp. of Oklahoma City have also bought more than 200,000 acres each in the eastern parts of the play.

As shale drilling activity heats up in the central portion of the state, environmental groups are calling on the state to tighten regulations, including water use restrictions

Anyone have any info on the Indigo Wildcat serial #242407.  On SONRIS it says waiting on completion.  I bet it plays into this some way.  Indigo and MTC are the same so something must be up.

I have leased land in Union Parish and believe they are looking for Oil more than Gas, there is both there.  After the huge Shale Play's in Louisiana and the new fracting fluids and "new" drilling tech. I believe Oil is being sought after.  Check out the Monroe Uplift formation. I am no expert just a landowner learning and trying to learn what's up.

If the Eagle Ford is below the Austin Chalk,  seems that would make it too deep to drill.  I really don't care what formation I have on my property,  I think they all have oil and can be productive when drilled properly and by the right people.  The first step is to get a good lease.

Eagle Ford in n.w. Rapides?

word from man who had the last closed well near hot wells, the companies are actually looking for the EAGLE FORD SHALE.

notice map:

http://www.energyindustryphotos.com/eagle_ford_shale__formation_of_...

eagle ford could easily extend into n.w. rapides parish.

 

also, great article that mentions Cheasapeak and Eagle Ford.

Blackjack.  you are correct.  I noticed there are now 4 members to your group Rapides parish.  The other two have not  commented yet.  Bet they will soon.  Most people today have that self-centered greed and only care about their own back yard, or should I say their own back pocket.  The 'HAVES" think they are the only ones that are ever gonin to have and the "HAVE-NOTS" will never have.  In other words they aren't willing to help their fellow man even if it is with free advice that cost them nothing.  They fear competition because it might take away from what they HAVE.  Here is a bit of free advice,  your friends are right,  don't sign "NUTHIN".  It's much too early and the offers will go up.
