Upcoming TMS Completion Results

The Tuscaloosa Trenders are anxiously awaiting the four upcoming TMS completions.  The Goodrich Smith 5-29H #1 represents the shallowest TMS test to date at a subsea TVD of -11,150'.  The Anderson 17-2/3 wells will be a good test of "repeatability" for Encana just adjacent to their excellent wells, the 17-1 and 18-1.  EOG's frac design will incorporate much more slickwater versus gel compared to their prior two completions.  Their third completion will test the western edge of the play.

From what I understand, all four frac jobs will be designed similar to the Goodrich Crosby 12H-1. Four simultaneous successes will continue to validate to the play.

  1. Who do you consider the Tuscaloosa Trenders? When will other wells be drilled?

      I is appears to me that you, me and everyone else that takes the time and effort to end up here on Kirk's website are all "Tuscaloosa Trenders"

      Confirmation that other wells will be drilled can be found at the Mississippi Oil and Gas Board permitting section and by reviewing information released by the respective companies in the TMS. If you access those sources you will see the time, energy etc that one has to put in to provide the data we are looking at.

      Kirk graciously makes it very easy for you, me and everyone else to basically come to just one place to stay up to date and current on all of the significant goings on in the TMS.

      It takes a lot of hard work, money and devotion of his resources to provide this to us so be grateful and show your appreciation as best you are able to by possibly donating to one of his favorite charities.

      Hope this information is of benefit to you.

      In the spirit of sharing I am including some websites you might give you information you are looking for. I am like you in that I do not have formal training in Oil and Gas and mineral resource development. Most of us who visit this site are not informed but with patience and hard work have learned a great deal-thanks to Kirk. Here are some sites that may answer your questions:

      Good luck in the TMS.
      We all are indebted to Kirk for his hard work.

  2. Kirk,
    Aren't the Horseshoe Hill wells in process of being fracked? Hope things continue to be successful. Thanks

  3. Mark,
    I consider anyone interested in the oil and gas activities in the Tuscaloosa Trend to be a "Tuscaloosa Trender".

  4. CB,
    Encana will be drilling the Horseshoe Hill offset next.

    1. Any idea what is taking Encana so long to start the next HH well? They finished drilling their last TMS well(Anderson 17H3 over a month ago).

  5. Just how much more "validation" will it take to push things into the next level up?

  6. About how much sand is being used per well in the TMS? Do you have an estimated range?

    1. The range has varied from about 150k pounds on early wells(too little) to 1 million pounds on an Ash well(too much apparently)per stage. They have experimented with all amounts in between. Devon used the most timid fracks and Encana the most aggressive. The optimal appears to be between 500k and 600k in my opinion, as that is reportedly what Encana and Goodrich are using on their latest wells. The # of stages is in the 20's on average, with as high as 33. Kirk can probably tell you exact amounts by well, but it is in the millions of pounds of sand per well. Coated or not coated sand? All I know is it is white sand in several mesh sizes.

    I have heard on other blogs that the HHill well site is not cleared yet and Encana is moving a rig from another shale play to drill it. Hopefully it happens this year. This is hearsay and I do have not hard info.

    1. Thanks CB. I am guessing that Encana is delaying all TMS drilling activity until they get the results of their new Anderson wells, which should be flowing this week.

    Here is a posting from another blog. It was posted within the last 24 hours from a reliable source:

    "Goodrich's Smith well is completed. There is a 6-8 foot gas flare blazing and the wellhead is cleared of all equipment. Rumored to be a good well and that oil is already being trucked out. Goodrich's Foster 20-7H#1 offset to Crosby 12-1H #1 is drilling at +5000 ft. with surface casing being placed . Encana's Horseshoe Hill 2nd and 3rd wells to be spud in early August. Anderson 17H 2& 3 are within days of completion. Should have some news on these wells within a week. The Goodrich investor presentation in early August should be a good one if these 3 wells are as good as the Crosby 12-1H#1 and the Anderson 17H1 and 18H1."
