    Brown Dense

    I understand that this is the basal layer of the Smackover Formation. I also understand that is plentiful and that if it can be tapped into, we may have another significant oil play. Right now, I believe the industry concerns are the ones they're having in other areas of interest, and that is drilling rigs capable of reaching that depth and the concomitant transportation issues that come with exploring in areas not formatted for delivery.

    I would love to hear your thoughts on this one!

    i didn't understand half of that, but if it is in the smackover area, why would transportation/infrastructure be an issue?

    Probably because of lack of road access to this rural area.

    I'm making specific reference to pipelines in rural areas, particularly Claiborne and Union Parishes. This would probably apply to parts of Southern Arkansas, as well.

    I apologize for any misunderstanding!

    i would have thought that the pipelines would already be there, since there are still a few wells pulling off of the smackover formation (and many that haven't been idle for very long). am i mistaken? i don't know a lot about geology or oil transportation, so i could be way off here.

    there are - and new ones...

    Over $100 million in new pipelines alone in Claiborne the past two years - same for Union

    Wow. I predict a glut of natural gas. Which would be good for the national economy. Hey! Natural gas could be used as a transportation fuel. And the Administration does not like this because ? A. We enjoy our dependency on foreign oil. B. Its a rich mans game and the admin hates rich people. Or anything that creates real tangible wealth.

    It's not just this administration. Don't forget about the Bush's and their oil.

    Re: Brown Dense

    Years ago in Union Parish, Amocco drilled a well that went to 15,000 feet, if memory serves me correctly. At that depth, they must have been going after something pertaining to the Louanna (?) Salt, but I'm not a geologist, so what do I know?

    I understand somebody has spent over a $1 billion in parts of North Louisiana/stateline area on leases. Is this the big announcement anticipated from Chesapeake in 1Q 2011?

    That would have to be pipline expenditure for one of the pipeline companies or an acquisition of producing leases. You can't spend 1B on new leases in an unproven area. Could have been lease bonus in the shale by somebody. Southwestern Energy buying 550,000 acres in Union Parish. Their 2011 CAPEX for new ventures shows 140M with two wells.
