Bus Devt: Tuscaloosa Marine Shale - Has the Dream Come True?

Speakers: Robert C. Turnham, Jr., Chief Operating Officer, Goodrich Petroleum Coporation, Kirk A. Barrell, President, Amelia Resources LLC, and Joseph DeDominic, Sr. VP and COO, Sanchez Energy Corporation

Host: Credit Suisse

Join us for a networking hour, with complimentary Hors’ D’ Oeuvres and a cash bar, followed by an hour-long program beginning at 5:00 pm in the Mezzanine.

The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale  has been gaining momentum as Goodrich, Sanchez, and others have acquired 1.3 million contiguous acres.  On paper, the TMS sounds like a dream come true – premium pricing and existing infrastructure enable operators to move their product quickly to market.  Our speakers will address their companies’ strategies for expansion and exploitation of the TMS as they convert their dream into reality in what could be the next top performing unconventional play. 

What are best practices utilized elsewhere that are transferable to the TMS?  What steps are being taken to enhance completion design and increase EURs?  How will the varying severance tax incentive policies affect decisions compared to other areas? What are the biggest competitive threats and opportunities?  Is this becoming the next Eagle Ford?

We welcome you to join us for this informative discussion, as well as the fellowship and networking of the popular Social Hour at 5:00 PM.
