EOG Spuds the Dupuy Land Co. #1
EOG spud the Dupuy Land Co. #1 today. The commencement of their TMS drilling program has been much anticipated. On 6/22/12, the permit was revised for a total depth of 12,500'. Assuming that this well is still a vertical pilot hole, that total depth places the bottom of the wellbore at an estimated 820' below the base of the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. That's a lot of "rat hole". That would place the TD an estimated 600' into the Lower Cretaceous carbonates. Might EOG be examining these carbonates for fractures along the structural nose (LaSalle Arch)? This could be an interesting development. The Lower Cretaceous is virtually unexplored over this entire region.
