– Devon Energy Corp., Oklahoma City, is drilling the Kardell-1 Jurassic Haynesville exploratory well in San Augustine County, Tex.

Log analysis while drilling through the Cretaceous James lime formation at 8,000 ft was encouraging, said 50% interest owner Crimson Exploration Inc., Houston.

The vertical pilot well is at 13,000 ft going to 13,500 ft. Cores are to be taken in Middle Bossier, James lime, and Haynesville shale before the horizontal section is drilled, probably in late October or early November.
