I think you are over looking the Austin Chalk, and the Escondido in South Texas. There are still a lot of those wells in Atascosa County. Supposedly the production companies are anxious t find Austin Chalk because the Eagle Ford is below it, and hopefully the Pearsall.

Jack, I and others have not forgotten the Austin Chalk. I spent a year buying leases in Beauregard and Rapides Parishes that are still good. Lets hope we see the drill bit in the near future.

Thanks for your response, in our area there is now some talk about Fracking the Austin Chalk. We had some wells on our place that were drilled in 1968 and plugged in about 2000 and produced quite for a long time. They were at about 6800 ft.

The chalk doesn't need to be fracked because it has natural fractures. I am no geologist but I think they would agree that it is too soft and that a frack job would mess up the formation. Technology is advancing every day so who knows what may happen tomorrow with the chalk.

My mistake, they were 4800 ft instead of 6800 ft.

Have some inherited property in Vernon Parish. Got a call this week from a landman with McGinty-Durham wanting me to sign a lease (Austin Chalk).
He stated that my step-mother had already signed her lease on her part of the property last week, and someone up the road had signed theirs some time ago. Their land has been cleared and fences were started going up around site this week. I am holding out on signing until I get my lease in the mail, read over it, and do my research.
I am having a hard time finding info on any type of projections for this new revival of the Austin Chalk play in Vernon Parish, I guess it is way too early in the game to find the info. I need as much info as possible in order to decide if I want to hire a lawyer and fight for the TRUE amount of land I was supposed to inherit preceding my father's death.
I am in the learning phase and ANY suggestions or advice that could be given would be greatly appreciated.
