I was in the late 70s and early 80s part of the original Tuscalosa trend development near my home in St.Fransivlle La and valued so highly working at home as a simple high pressure welder fabricator for contractors. Now after traveling from that time all over the nation in devlopments as the Tuscalso trend and presently a contract construction manager over such developments, I value the field becoming active again in potentially offering such people as myself once again development jobs. Thank you inverstors and companies, welcome back

Re: Operators Look to Unlock Tuscaloosa Marine Shale Potential 6/21/2011 Just found the above article. Very interesting. As I write this, Im in the old False River Field in Pointe Coupee Parish, Louisiana. The False River Field is presently unleased but I expect that to change because theres a lot of "Well Control" data from old wells drilled back in its hay-day. The entire Louisiana Tuscaloosa Trend (deep gas) was launched from the False River Field at Chevrons No. 1 Alma Well. Collectively, my wifes family own about 1,000 acres in the old False River Field. My wife and I own about 50 Mineral Acres in the Judge Digby Field which is still producing Gas after over 30 years. We have +/- 20 Acres in Judge Digby Field which is no longer held by deep gas production. Theres also a great deal of geological data on this prolific field which is second only to Port Hudson Field, the "jewel in the crown".

Well it finally looks like someone will finally tap one of the largest gas and oil discovery of the USA. The locals has been knowing about this discovery for over 40 to 50 years. The area that they have mention is only part of many more areas in Louisiana/Gulf Coast that is not tapped. If they would tap the areas that the locals know about then why would USA need foreign supplies? KPH
