Austin Chalk Play Research
Very good update on the Austin Chalk. Thirty years ago 2D seismic mapping of the Austin Chalk highlighted the Cretaceous shelf edge, faults, and structural noses to locate the high potential naturally fractured Austin Chalk horizontal wells. That was before hydraulic fracturing completion technology and finding natural fractures was the key to profitability. Initial flow rates on good wells were in the thousands of barrels of oil and millions of cubic feet of gas per day. Standing on location next to a good producing well you would hear Austin Chalk rock fragments banging the against the steel tank battery, cha-ching!
