Tuscaloosa Marine Shale - Drilling Rates

With three wells drilled/drilling in the TMS, a comparison can be made on the drilling rates.  So far, the operators appear to be making great time on the vertical drilling.  Of course, drilling the horizontal and fracking will be other key variables.

  1. Is there any way to estimate when initial production numbers should become available on the Lane well?

  2. FM,
    They haven't frac'd the well yet. I hear that they will frac it in early August. They can hold the test information "tight" once they do. We'll probably have to live with rumors for some time.

  3. Being able to remain hopeful is not that bad I guess.
