Anadarko Petroleum Corp. has completed the GASRS 23-1 well that targeted Cretaceous Austin chalk in South Burr Ferry field, Vernon Parish, La.
The well’s initial test rate was 744 b/d of oil and 7.2 MMcfd of gas with 4,100 psi flowing tubing pressure on a 34/64-in. choke, said partner Swift Energy Co. It is the first of four to six wells in the area that are planned to be drilled this year.
Other operators are drilling and completing wells along the same trend that target Austin Chalk, Wilcox, and Tuscaloosa marine shale (OGJ Online, Dec. 9, 2011).
