NUTECH’s Austin Chalk study is a 20 well study. The Austin Chalk is an upper Cretaceous formation that consists of recrystallized, fossiliferous, interbedded chalks and marls. The Austin Chalk overlay the Eagle Ford shale in South Texas, The Woodbine in Southeast Texas and the Tuscaloosa Marine Shale in South Louisiana. The Austin Chalk is present in the entire Gulf Coast and outcrops from Austin to Dallas. The thickness ranges from 80 feet to 1,800 feet and has produced as shallow as 900 feet to as deep as 16,500 feet. The production fluid also ranges from black oil to dry gas. This study gives a regional understanding of the Chalk from the Karnes Trough through Louisiana to St Tamany parish including the Eaglebine area, Brookeland field, Masters Creek, North Bayou Jack, and East Baton Rouge.
