FRIO SUCCESSES BUILD IN SOUTHERN MISSISSIPPI
Jack S. Moody Mississippi Bureau of Geology Jackson, Miss. How would you like to find a new trend where gas wells can have more than 5 bcf/well of reserves and oil wells yield more than 100,000 bbl from easy drilling to no deeper than 4,000 ft? Such is the circumstance for the long overlooked Oligocene Frio of southern Mississippi. The term Frio has long brought dollar signs to the imaginations of Louisianans and Texans, but it is only beginning to register such in the Magnolia state.
