I noticed Brooks has permitted a horizontal "oil" well in the Pettit formation in the Harleton area.  Of course, it may later be changed to a "gas" well, but this is the first horizontal Pettit well I can recall in Harrison County.  Back in the 1970's there were a few good vertical Pettit oil wells north of Marshall.

The Pettit is usually not highly gas charged in our part of the world as far as I know.  Most Pettit completions are oil wells.  If memory serves four or five years ago there were a couple of horizontal Pettit wells drilled in northern Caddo and/or Bossier parishes.  They were not economic.  During that same time and in the same general area there were other horizontal wells drilled in conventional formations besides the Pettit - Annona Chalk and Gray Sands come to mind.  If there are areas of low permeability, it is possible that conventional reservoirs can be economic with horizontal development - the Terryville Complex in Lincoln Parish being a good example.

Thanks again Skip.  We don't own any minerals up in that area but I hope they have good luck. Isn't this about the time of the year you try to get a little fishing in:)

LOL!  Yes, Kathy...just not so far this year.  I'm really missing the lake but business has picked up and I'm making up for last year.  Hopefully there will be a few bass left in Toledo Bend by the time I get there.
