by Kenneth E. DuBose on August 10, 2011

Operators are beginning to disclose more on the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale. You can read more and discuss your lease rates and drilling activity at Mineral Rights Forum’s Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Group.

Denbury Resoureces didn’t give us too much guidance, but did announce that Encana is their new partner in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.

Devon Energy recently completed drilling a test well. The company will test its Tuscaloosa Marine Shale core samples before going forward with a horizontal well in the play.

We’re also moving forward with the testing of our new venture plays. These include the Tuscaloosa, the Niobrara, the Mississippi Lime in Oklahoma, the Ohio Utica, and the A1 Carbonate and Utica in Michigan.

And finally, in the Tuscaloosa Shale play located along the Louisiana and Mississippi border, we recently completed drilling, coring and logging operations on our first well, the Lane 64-1. This is a vertical well that we drilled to obtain data. The rig has now moved up depth to the Beech Grove 68 1H (sic) [ 68H-1 ] where we plan to gather additional core and log data before drilling the lateral and completing it as our first horizontal in the Tuscaloosa.
