The Next Austin Chalk Location

It's been rumored that the next Anadarko Austin Chalk location will be in Lacour Field in Pointe Coupee Parish. A permit has not appeared on SONRIS.

  2. Alan,
    You can pull down individual well info from SONRIS. Lacour Field has the one Austin Chalk oil producer that I have displayed in the paper on the link of the post. A lot of engineers don't like re-entries. Too much mechanical risk.

  3. i have an interest in some property in that area, but i have never seen the Lacour field listed on SONRIS. most of the wells are listed in the Morganza Field. Some of the wells are actually named Lacour 1, 2, 3 and so on. Is Lacour a new field? My interest are in and near New Rhodes and Labarre. are we talking about the same area... Thanks for your assistance.

  4. On SONRIS go to "field code listing". Then use field code to search under "wells by field". That will produce the list of wells in the field. Hope this helps

  5. is BP still selling the assets in the area? if so do you know who the bidders are? Is pennington or UPRC still in the area?

  6. Alan,
    I don't know BP's plans. Pennington hasn't done much Tuscaloosa drilling in some time. UPRC was acquired by Anadarko many years ago. Anadarko is very active across the Austin Chalk trend.

  7. kirk, how far south in pointe coupee does the austin chalk go? would acreage in Labarre have a chance?

  8. Alan,
    The Austin Chalk is present there, but it is deep and expensive. Success shallower may lead to expansion in the deeper part of the play.

  9. Thanks Kirk,
    Have you heard and rumors about BP? Are they still looking for buyers in this area? Or is there a possibility that they have decided to hold on and continue to explor this area. There knowledge of this area is extensive and could be profitable. Your thoughts please?.... alan

  10. Alan,
    I believe that they are still committed to selling 100% of their Tuscaloosa assets. Might be challenging in this low nat-gas price environment.
