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.
