With regards to Devon's location, I believe that this is in an area where the existing data warrants testing. Being proximal to the Feliciana Salt Ridge increases the probability of the presence of fractures. Wells near the Lane 64-1 have mudlog shows in the Austin Chalk. Log analysis (see below) indicates high resistivities and good porosities. The SONRIS work order indicates that they plan to perforate over 200'. Locals indicate that the rig is on location. This should be an exciting development for the area that is located in the deeper part of the TMS. I commend Devon for their efforts. It must seem like an eternity for the locals who had a Devon rig on the Lane 64 location back in May, 2011. Good luck to all!
