Based on today's investor presentation EXCO is NOT slowing down their nat gas drilling in LA and TX.

They plan to continue at their current pace through the end of the year and beyond.

Did you notice the BACHTELL OIL & GAS KEAHEY GAS UNIT 1 12000ft oil/gas right next to the STM wells in Marion

The Keahey was drilled back in Oct/Nov 2010. It looks like this W-1 filing is to add the Rodessa (Cotton Valley Cons.) field, an "oil or gas" target at 9,800'. The original W-1 from August 2010 is just a Wildcat to 12,000'.

The well was completed May 27 and the G-1 only seems to show gas (631 MMcf/day). It was drilled to 11,000' but plugged back to 10,580. It looks like there was a perforation between 9,840' and 10,019'. The formation record shows Taylor Sands below 9,649' and Cotton Valley Lime below 10,713'. Here is link to the G-1 form: http://is.gd/lBqmoe.

Yes they drilled to the smackover, then plug the well 500 feet above it and then produce above it. Seems like the same old story. Then the new twist.

They just finish the well and then turn around and pull a new permit to drill another 1000 feet deeper into the Smackover. Seems like they found something interesting but were initially unsure how to go forward.

Hearing on other boards that Bachtell has increased it's leasing activity in the area.


The updated G-1 was released on 6/27/2011 after they got the permit approval to drill to 12,000 ft on 6/13/2011.
