Southern Star's Louisiana Project Onstream
Southern Star Energy reported the completion of its latest well, the Atkins-Lincoln 18-2 well in Sentell Field, Bossier Parish Louisiana. The well was drilled to a depth of 9,950 feet in October 2007. The well has been completed in the Upper Davis section of the Cotton Valley Formation with perforations at 8,478 feet to 8,492 feet.
The zone was fracture stimulated using conventional 'slick water' fracturing technique with 71,770 pounds of proppant on December 20, 2007. After flowback, production tubing was installed. Production equipment tie-ins and a 2,600 feet flowline installation were recently completed and the well was placed on production at 2:00 pm on January 10, 2008. The well is currently flowing at 703 mcfd at 900 psig flowing tubing pressure.
Along with Southern Star Energy, Dynamic Resources and its partners currently have approximately 5300 acres under lease within the prospect area, which is defined by a string of ten old wells drilled in the 1950s, one well per 640 acre spacing.
