Encana BOE #1H - Wellbore Diagram

******************* CORRECTION *****************************
Thank you to Stan Martin for identifying an additional report from the MS Oil & Gas Board.  The data below has been corrected from the original post.
**************************************************************
There has been a lot of discussion regarding the test results of Encana's re-entry of the Board of Education #1H well in Amite County, MS.  The wellbore diagrams below provide some additional information and perspective.  Upcoming wells with 6800' laterals could present some interesting results.

TMS Resistivity Isopach - Active Wells

A prior discussion has been provided regarding the significance of resistivity in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.  Below are the isopach values of resistivity great than 5 ohm-m for the current TMS well portfolio.  Indigo's 23H-1 well is one to watch.  A successful completion in that well more than doubles the prospective area of the play.

ION Geophysical Corporation Plans Central LA 3D Survey

ION Geophysical Corporation plans a large, high-tech 3-D survey across central Louisiana, technically designed to high-grade Tuscaloosa Marine Shale and Austin Chalk play areas.  The location and size of the survey will evolve as additional players enter the play.
