Page 4 The Woodville Republican, Thursday, February 5, 2015 Wildlife Management Area Turkey Hunting Apps Available Quail, Turkey Management Seminar WCCA Bitty Basketball Gets Off To Great Start WCCA's Bitty Basketball teams started the season in the Natchez AYA league this past Saturday, January 24. The teams did well on their first outing winning three out of six games. WCCA is fielding five teams this year with one team in each division except for the 5/6th grade girls divi- sion which, due to large num- bers, has two teams. The first team to see action for the day was the Treppendahl's Super Foods 5/6th grade girls team who played the ACCS Rea- gan Diesel team. Both teams were sluggish offensively and the game turned into a defen- sive struggle. Two clutch free throws mid-way through the fourth quarter by Anna Char- lotte Redhead would be the difference as the Lady Rams won it 3 to 2. Also scoring for WCCA was Savanna Ashley with one free throw. The Treppendahl's Su- per Foods 5/6th grade girls team had to turn right around and play again against the Cathedral Elite team. You know it is going to be a dif- ficult game when your tall- est player stands about 4'10" and the opposing team has one standing 5'10." The Lady Rams played well and were only down by two points in the fourth quarter. The Cathedral team would extend the lead to tbur late in the fourth quarter forcing the Lady Rams to take some chances to get back in the ball game. It didn't work for the Lady Rams as they would give up several easy buckets in the last minute of the game to lose by a score of 22-11. Leading scorer for the Lady Rams was Savanna Ashley with six points, fol- lowed by Grade Cavin with four points and Anna Char- lotte Redhead with one point. The other 5/6th grade girls team is sponsored by Concor~ dia Bank & Trust Company. T~i~ty" was ' their opponent' this past Samrday~ The Lady P ms plag. l, ell the' r first outing having never trailed Trinity en route to an 11 to 6 victory. Emily Sessions is always a big threat to oppos- ing teams, and this proved true again as she led the Lady Rams with four points. Lalie Havard provided a huge spark off the bench by scoring three points and Shelbie Robertson and Mallory Ford rounded out the scoring with two points apiece. Foster Insurance Agency is sponsoring the 5/6th grade boys team this year. The Rams started on fire against the league favorite Cathedral JKS team on Saturday taking an early lead. Andrew Ses- sions was able to limit their leading scorer early in the game with some solid man on man defense. However, it was the big men for Cathedral who would prove too much to handle inside for the Rams as they would lose by a score of 22-14. Smooth shooting R. J. Fisher scored eleven points for the Rams, followed by John Foster Orgeron with two points and Caleb Kinabrew with one point. The WCCA 3/dth grade boys team is sponsored again this year by Whitaker Insur- ance Agency. This team is still the league favorite, and they proved why on Saturday. WCCA demolished the Delta Charter School by a score of 22 to 13. Ryan Fisher led all scor- ers with 10 points, followed by Jack Orgeron and David Smith with 4 points apiece. Nathan Mudd and Tyler McI emurry rounded out the scoring with two points apiece. The WCCA 3/dth grade girls team is sponsored by United Mississippi Bank. They are extremely young this year with only two players having played before. Their youth showed on Saturday as they struggled offensively. They did play very well defen- sively and are looking to im- prove each week. Cathedral's Computer Consultant team was too much to handle on Saturday as they would fall by a score of 10-2. Ann Patin scored the lone bucket for the Lady Rams. The next action for the WCCA Bitty Basketball teams will be Saturday, Janu- ary 31. The United Mississippi Bank 3/dth grade girls team played Cathedralo M cDonough team at 9:20 a.m., followed The Mississippi Depart- ment of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) is ac- cepting applications for per- mitted turkey hunting on se- lected Wildlife Management Areas (WMAs).

Since Goodrich is said to have two rigs under contract until May of 2015, it appears that the plans are to honor those contracts and then shut down drilling for :the remainder of 2015. The news release went on to state that completion of drilled wells will not occur until the 2nd half of 2015. I'm guessing this would mean 10-11 wells stretching from Washington Parish to WiLkinson County will be- gin to be completed around July by Goodrich Petroleum. Currently there are 4 wells ready for completion and 3 more that should be ready by the middle of February. It is reasonable to expect the two rigs Goodrich is operating in the TMS to drill 2 more wells each before the rig contract period ends. If so, that's a total of 11 wells. Naturally the reason for the reduction in capital expenditure plans can be traced directly to the price of off. Goodrich is planning (hoping?) the price of oil will be higher in the 2rid half. Is this a reasonable expec- tation? Arguments against this happening include the fact that the U. S. inventory of oil is reportedly at its highest level in 80 years. Moreover, supply appears to be continu- ing to increase while demand is continuing to wane. Arguments for an in- crease in oil prices mainly rests on the facts that the number of rigs drilling in the U. S. and around the world is dropping dramatically and that many U. S. shale oil companies, like Goodrich, are postponing fracturing operations on wells drilled. Both of these actions, given time, should provide a relief in the glut of oil. Regardless of the argu- ments, no one knows if the 2nd half of 2015 pricing be better than the current price, but everyone knows the current price is too low. All that remains is hope for a better day. It is interesting to note that the TMS isn't the only shale play impacted by the low off prices. Peak rig count in the Bakken was said to be 218 at one point last year and is down to 130 as of January 27. Predictions are the rig numbers will fall a lot So, that's 2 companies, 3 rigs and 5 wells currently drilling in the TMS. Sanchez has one site finished (Mace- donia), and a rig could start drilling there at any time. Sanchez is also preparing the Bloomer site near Fort Adams at this time, so this site could also possibly be drilled in the near future.

It simply doesn't make sense to drill or complete wells right now. Focusing back on the TMS. There has been some confusion about the number of rigs currently operating in the TMS. To my knowledge there are 3 as of today. Encana is operating the Trinidad 125 on a pad that is drilling both the McIntesh 15H-1 and the Reese 16H-1 in Amite County. Goodrich has the Nabors X-17 drilling the B-Nez 43H- 1 and 43H-2 in Tangipa- hoa Parish. These two Wells are actually in two separate units, but being drilled from one pad and with one rig. Goodrich also has the Naz bors Rig #624 drilling the Painter ETAL in Washing- ten Parish.
