This is the first time that I have seen this area called the Louisiana Eagle Ford by an oil company.

Indigo has been using the term, Eagle Ford", in their press releases since they announced their prospect.

I take it the Eagle Ford was the formation drilled.  Or was this a TMS well?

This is an LA EFS well....

Does anyone know the purpose of the shallow well that is the subject of the Natchitoches Parish Eagle Ford Shale Oil thread which was permitted as EF and drilled in 8n-8w a few months ago?  Was this simply to interrupt prescription, or was any actual information gathered as to the viability of the EF in that area?

Lets keep our fingers crossed with hope that production doesn't fall at a rapid pace.

Houston firm reports find in Tuscaloosa Marine Shale

Houston-based Indigo Minerals announced today that it has struck pay dirt in one of the newest stretches of shale oil and gas in Louisiana to start drawing industry attention.

In a statement through its Louisiana subsidiary, Indigo II Louisiana Operating, the company said its first horizontal well in the Louisiana Eagle Ford Shale, also known as the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale, resulted in oil and liquid natural gas finds. The 2.7 million-acre play spans central and southeast Louisiana and a section of southwest Mississippi.

The Indigo well, in Rapides Parish, flowed at a rate of about 543 barrels of oil per day during recent testing. To put that into perspective, the BP oil well that blew out in the Gulf of Mexico last April flowed at rate of 53,000 barrels per day before being capped in July, according to final estimates.

Is it possible for northern boundaries of the TMS to extend into Desoto Parish? I know the maps don't show it but I have heard that in 2012 some test wells will be drilled to see if there is an extension of this play
