One other very interesting aspect of the "yield map" is that the point where this drastic change occurs in western Avoyelles Parish is aligned with the western edge of the "higher resistivity" TMS-East. The significance of the TMS resistivity is yet to be confirmed. The Austin Chalk yields and the TMS resistivity maps do seem to indicate that the east and the west are different hydrocarbon systems. The significance of that will likely become apparent in the coming years after much more drilling in both plays.
