  • Intrepid Drilling Permits New Well

    Intrepid Drilling has permitted the Peltier Farm LLC, et. al. #1 in the West Lake Boeuf Field located in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. We will be drilling this well to a depth of 14,640 feet TVD, with a measured depth of 15,610 feet. The well is being drilled in a 528 acre unit, and will be targeting 7 miocene sands.  It is located in Section 36, Township 15 South, Range 18 East, with a bottom hole location in Section 116.

  • Intrepid Drilling Commences Production of Well in South Lake Charles, Louisiana

    On March 10, 2014, Intrepid Drilling, LLC completed its directional well in Lake Charles South Field in Calcasieu Parish, LA.  The HBY RG SUA Williams well (formerly Ronald W. Williams et. al.#1) flowed 400 barrels of 54 API gravity oil per day and 1,600,000 cubic feet of natural gas per day through a 6/64ths choke. The gas/oil ratio was 4,000. The flowing tubing pressure was 5,000 pounds per square inch and the shut-in tubing pressure was 8,500 pounds per square inch.  The production is from an interval between 15,150' and 15,170' in the Hackberry Lower C formation.

  • Intrepid Drilling Logs Multiple Pay Zones

    Intrepid Drilling has logged multiple pays in the Lower Hackberry Formation between 14,800 feet and 15,200 feet in its Ronald W. Williams, et. al. #1 well.  The decision to run casing to a total depth of 15,340 feet has been made in order to attempt a completion. 

  • Intrepid Drilling Spuds Well at South Lake Charles

    Intrepid Drilling spudded a 15,300' land well on September 25, 2013 and has set surface pipe of 13 3/8ths to 4,000 feet. We are currently drilling ahead at a depth of below 11,022 feet. 

  • Intrepid Drilling Starts Construction of Location at South Lake Charles

    Location work for the Ronald W. Williams, et. al. #1 well at Intrepid Drilling's South Lake Charles prospect has commenced. The location is situated in Section 19, Township 11 South, Range 8 West in Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana. Plans are in motion to spud the well sometime in August, 2013.  

  • Intrepid Drilling Stakes New Well

    Intrepid Drilling has staked a 15,400' test well in South Lake Charles Field, Section 19, Township 11 South, Range 8 West, Calcasieu Parish, Louisiana.  This prospect is located 7 miles south of the city of Lake Charles, Louisiana.  It is a middle ogliocene age geo-pressured prospect located in the middle and lower hackberry sands.  Reserve potential for this prospect exceeds 60 BCFG (billion cubic feet of gas) and 4 MMBO (million barrels of oil). 

  • Intrepid Drilling Commences Production of Lafourche Parish Discovery

    Intrepid Drilling has commenced production of its Alvin Pierce No. 1 well in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. The well was completed in the Textularia W9 sand at 13,268 feet and tested 3.3 million cubic feet of gas per day and 500 barrels condensate per day with 6,100 psi flowing tubing pressure on a 12/64-inch choke.  There are two additional productive zones behind pipe.

  • Intrepid Completes Discovery in Lafourche Parish

    Intrepid Drilling has completed its Alvin Pierce #1 well in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana. The company drilled to a depth of 13,357 feet and logged an additional 27 feet of oil pay full to base in the Tex   W-9 interval at 13,254', a new field discovery.  This interval was completed and tested through perforations 13,268' to 13,280' at a rate of 500 BOPD and 3300 MCFG with a flowing tubing pressure of 6200 psi on a 12/64 choke.  Additionally, two other pay zones were identified up the hole in the Tex W-7 and the Tex W-8.  Intrepid drilled this untested fault block west of the prolific Cut Off Field based on recently acquired 3D data. The company plans to drill at least two more wells in the area.

  • Intrepid Drilling Logs Additional Pay

    Intrepid Drilling has drilled to a total depth of 13,357 feet and has logged additional pay in our Alvin Pierce #1 Well in Lafourche Parish, Louisiana and discovered an additional Tex W-9 sand at 13,257 feet with approximately 24 feet of net pay full to base. A rough estimate of reserves would be 24 feet x 200 acres x 500 barrels per acre foot = 2.4 million barrels for this sand in addition to the 35 feet of net pay discovered in the Tex W-7 interval. We have concluded that we have the potential for 2+ million barrels in the Tex W-7, a productive gas/oil sand in the Tex W-8, and 2+ million barrels in the Tex W-9.

  • Intrepid Drilling Sets Pipe on Discovery In Lafourche Parish, Louisiana

    Intrepid has set intermediate 7 1/2 inch casing to 12,990 feet on our Alvin Pierce #1 well in West Cut Off, Louisiana. We drilled to a depth of 13,025 feet and logged 35 feet of oil pay full to base in the Tex W-7 interval. The top of the Tex W-8 was penetrated but not drilled through due to excess pressure and gas flow which required 12.2 pound mud to stabilize.

    We drilled this untested fault block west of the prolific Cut Off Field based on recently acquired 3-D data. We plan to resume drilling through the Tex W-8 and test the UL-1 interval at approximately 13,450 feet. A future well will be drilled to the deeper UL-2 interval.

  • Nabors Rig #729

    Nabors Rig #729 has rigged-up on location in West Cut Off, Louisiana and we spudded the Alvin Pierce #1 on Wednesday,  April 6, 2011.  You can view this drilling prospect live in the project section and watch as we drill. Drilling should take approximately three weeks.
