Sentell Bossier-Haynesville well logged

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Oct. 20 -- Southern Star Energy Inc., Houston, said logs indicate that its Atkins-Lincoln 17-2 well in Sentell field, Bossier Parish, La., north of Shreveport, encountered gas in the Jurassic Lower Bossier and Haynesville shales.

The well logged 205 ft of highly laminated, silty, and naturally fractured shale zone with crossplot porosities of 9-12%. Mud logs indicated abundant gas shows throughout of 400-600 units with trip gas as high as 3,000 units. The interval exhibits the characteristics of the Lower Bossier shale, the company said.

Just below the laminated section it cut 185 ft of quality dark black organic rich shale with 1,100-3,000-unit gas shows. This interval exhibits the characteristics the industry classifies as Haynesville shale. TD is 11,300 ft.

The wellbore is suspended with 7-in. intermediate casing through the Cotton Valley formation at 9,500 ft to preserve the company's options to complete as a vertical producer or reenter for horizontal drilling pending the development of completion techniques.

As a member of the Core Laboratories Integrated Reservoir Solution's regional Haynesville Shale Study, the company's data are being incorporated into the Core Lab database for use in designing optimum completion techniques for horizontal drilling in the Haynesville play.

Dynamic Resources Corp., Las Vegas, has a 20% working interest in the well and in 5,300 acres in Sentell field.
