Chattanooga Well Frac Scheduled for Late July

Energen said that the 3,000 foot horizontal length of its Chattanooga shale test well, the Westervelt 19-2 #1, has been drilled and set and is scheduled to be hydraulically fractured in late July. A minor delay while drilling the horizontal leg caused the company to have to reschedule its planned, multi-stage nitrogen frac. Energen also plans to frac in late July an uphole interval in the Marchant 22-16 #1.

Energen had hoped to have well results to disclose in June; a determination of the two shales’ economic viability may not be known now until late summer/early fall.
