Just just in; new reports have the Southwestern BLM well flowing 350 barrels of oil a day along with nearly 2 million cubic feet of natural gas. The natural gas would give the well an equivalent of around 550 barrels of oil per day.
Not as good as we had hopped for, but not that bad either. It will take another half dozen wells to tell if the Brown Dense will be a real boost to North Louisiana and South Arkansas. I’m still betting the new wells will prove up millions of barrels of recoverable oil and make El Dorado’s old name “Cadillac City” relevant again.
