Basin: Illinois basin
Producing fm: Primary targets are Mississippian carbonates with secondary target of the Devonian shale. Formations include McClosky A through C, Salem‐Warsaw , Fort Payne and New Albany shale.
Trap type: Combination stratigraphic/structural
Depth: Ranges from 1800 – 4000 feet
Drilling method: Vertical wells drilled on fluid
Completion method: Cased hole completions. Carbonates are acidized or slick‐water sand fracs. Shale is slick‐water sand frac
Producing wells: Planned development
EUR: Analog fields averaged from 35,000 to 62,00 bbls per well
Infrastructure: Oil is trucked to nearby refineries, some oil pipelines available
Acreage position: Over 8000 acres of three‐year term leases
Comments: Historical area of oil production with multiple pay potential. New Albany (Devonian) shale is new wet gas play developing in west Kentucky and adjacent Indiana.
