"Top of Austin Chalk in this area is below 15,000' based on the old deep Amoco well that is 1.3 miles due west of this EOG location.
Although well permitted to 17,100' as a vertical AC test, EOG stopped at this point (around 13,900') -…"
"Log filed on 9/12/19 for this well in SONRIS confirms that this well never reached the Austin Chalk and that all the completion attempts were in the various clastic / sand packages located above the AC. These may be called Lower Wilcox (Eocene) or…"
"I am no geologist but note in the SONRIS work permits all refer their perforations as "Austin Chalk." I suppose one can title one's work request as one wants to do that. It is clear they drilled down to where they wanted…"
"Optimism about the EOG well is great to have - but remember that they did not get this well to the AC for testing / all that work was done in the Lower Wilcox Sands. So even with success, the impact will be local and not trend wide.
"Yes, but Petroquest did not even do a perforation while EOG did four perforations on the Brunswick well. Petroquest pulled back, set a plug at 4,000 feet or so and moved off. And there was frack equipment in place on the Brunswick pad…"
"The way this well has been drilled so far (e.g. 5.5" casing set to TD) will prevent any deepening to the Tuscaloosa Sand deep gas section. Too small a diameter wellbore to re-enter and drill deeper.
Odds are that the "future" of this…"
"Bad news. EOG has filed a report on the Brunswick well. It is coding the well as code 31, "Shut in Dry Hole - Future Utility." I guess some where in the future they can punch on down to the Tuscaloosa Trend for deep dry…"
"I can understand your feelings. But if you pull up the information on the Brunswick well, you will note all the perforation comments state they are perforating in Austin Chalk "sands". I take that to mean into the Austin Chalk…"
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
