The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Play is anything, but boring. One minute everyone is excited by positive results and another seeming break through. The next, all is doom and gloom. It's a roll- er coaster without a doubt. This week, let's focus on the positive things that are hap- pening in terms of the play spreading, another compa- ny joining in the fun and continued improvements in cost. The Sanchez Morris 1H well drilling three miles west of Woodville and about 8 miles north of the Louisi- ana Line is further west than any other well on the east side of the Mississippi River. Though there are no guaran- tees, other wells are permit- ted 10 miles west and fiLrther north of the Morris 1H in preparation for success. Likewise, the current Goodrich Kent 41H in the Chesbrough community of Tangipahoa Parish is about 11 miles south of the Mis- Sissippi line and among the most eastern wells drilled. That said, there are ap- proved permits and others applied even further east on into Washington Parish. As the crow flies the San- chez Morris 1H and Kent 41H are roughly 50 miles apart, but to drive this in a vehicle would take nearly two hours. If the play is 15 miles north to south and 50 miles east to west and three wells per square mile drilled when the TMS is fully developed, there is a potential of 2,250 wells. By my count, again on the east side of the Mississippi River, there have been 74 wells spud (drilling started) since the "modem" era of TMS drilling began roughly three years ago. Add into the equation that these wells are project- ed to produce for at least 20 years and that even the longest and highest produc- ing wells already drilled have likelymade no more than 25 % of ultimate production for that well, then the picture becomes clearer. We ain't seen nothing, yet. Perhaps all this poten- tial is why VirTex Operat- ing Company, Inc., of Corpus C_+h'.fi, Text.., is now ap- plying for permits to drill in Pike County. Though the two permit applications made by this company are duplicates of two made by Sanchez, it is still nice to know that a sixth company is interested in the play. We shall see which of these two companies end up with the permit and drill these wells. I suspect continued inter- est in drilling in the TMS de- spite low oil prices is at least in part due to a continual drop in drilling times. The double well drilling pads are seemingly beginning to hit stride and we could see the Longleaf 29H wells drilled in less than 30 days each and potentially both in less than 25 days each. This is easily a savings of over $2 million per well compared to the cost this time last year. Add in the reduction in cost for one pad versus two, one rig move versus two, etc.., and the smiles widen further. Over the next two weeks we will hear from all 5 op- erating companies in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale as third quarter reports are giv- en. Will we hear the words "commercial" and "accelera- tion" from the management of these operating compa- nies? Or, will we experience another abrupt change in di- rection for the prospects here in the TMS? Stay tuned!
