WILKINSON COUNTY — Goodrich Petroleum Corporation of Houston, Texas, has completed its CMR-Foster Creek 20-7H-1 well in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale in Wilkinson County.
According to the company, the well was successfully drilled with a 6,200 foot lateral and fracture stimulated with 23 stages but encountered completion issues while drilling out the frac plugs with coiled tubing resulting in the loss of a bottom hole assembly and fishing tools in the well. The company replaced the coiled tubing unit with a workover rig in an attempt to remove the downhole tools but fishing operations were un-successful. The well was subsequently placed on production from the approximately 2,100 feet of usable and unobstructed lateral.
The well has reached a 24-hour peak production rate of 527 barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) per day, comprised of 500 barrels of oil and 174 Mcf of gas on a 16/64 inch choke from the 2,100 feet of lateral.
Goodrich Petroleum is currently drilling the lateral of the Huff 18-7H-1 (97% WI) well in Amite County. with plans to go to two rigs later this month.
The company currently has in excess of 300,000 net acres in the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale.
