"As to question as to this formation extending into Cass County, the stratigraphic equivalent does stretch into NE Texas and at least as far west as Hopkins / Rains County. Gets deeper and gas prone in that area but it is still the primary Smackover…"
"Sorry for delay in response - been covered up here.
Not a lot of info out there but combination of distance to nearest pipeline hook up (at least four miles) and probable low ultimate recovery (tied in part to shallow depth) points to operator…"
"I have seen wells "stranded" like this and never put to sales.
Best example that comes to mind of a well that just sat there for a long time prior to being put to sales is in Tennessee where gas well sat for over 20 years before another…"
"Depending on well costs and pipeline costs, the return on investment may not merit putting capital here - versus putting it elsewhere (e.g. Southwestern is heavy in the Brown Dense oil play in southern Arkansas / Northern Lousiana).

"I have never personally experienced a pipeline hook up for this long - but I am betting that the operator feels that area is not economic to merit laying a pipeline.

Mark, I am new to the forum but appreciate your taking the time to share your information and knowledge with all. My family has leased property in LaSalle County which seems to be on the western edge of the EOG leases and just a little west and south of the Hof4 well. Our land appears to be on the border of the oil window and the wet gas window based upon the generalized maps I have seen. Could you share your thoughts on the prospects for wells drilled there, what you think the thickness of the shale formation might be and any other information you think relevant?
Thanks, B. Moon
Hello! I hope the site is a place for you to learn, network and contribute. My name is Keith and I started the site in June of 2008 to open up lines of communication between landowners. Since then, we have grown to over 13,000 members.
Because our network has grown word-of-mouth, I want to encourage you to invite your friends and family by clicking here.
There are a couple things you should check out. 1) Check out current discussions. 2) Join in on the County and Parish Groups. By joining a County or Parish, you are networking locally with people who share similar concerns.
Be sure to read up on how to navigate the site HERE. This will help you get the most out of the site.
As a member, should you ever be on the recieving end of crudeness, rudeness or spam, let me know. The site is a peered monitored site and we need your assistance.
As exciting as this is, we know that we have a responsibility to do this thing correctly. After all, we want the farm to remain a place where the family can gather for another 80 years and beyond. This site was born out of these desires. Before we started this site, googling "shale' brought up little information. Certainly nothing that was useful as we negotiated a lease. Read More
