Southwestern Receives Its First Deep Smackover Permit

Thanks to a reader who pointed out that Southwestern Energy yesterday received a permit to drill a deep Smackover well in Claiborne Parish (Garrett 7-23-5 H #1; Lick Creek Field; Sec 7/Township 23/Range 5; Reservoir: Lower Smackover Res. A; 20,200').

This is SWN's first permit for the Smackover in Louisiana since it announced that it had accumulated 460,000 acres prospective for the Brown Dense formation in Arkansas and Louisiana. Based on information from SWN, this might be the last such permit for the year as the company continues to explore the opportunity, and it will be watched closely.
