I have heard that before the Austin Chalk is really tapped into in Madison County, the Georgetown and Buda formations have to be tapped through first. Looking over my W-2s I am guessing that to really get into the Austin Chalk formation in Madison County it is going to require drilling down to 11,000 to 12,000 feet.
Has anyone else come up with these numbers? I know that the Austin chalk has poked its nose out at around 9500 feet, but its real depth is much deeper.
Enquiring minds want to know.
And if,, I am correct about the Chalk then how far down to the Eagle Ford? I know I am leaving out the Woodbine but it seems to kind of show up in one in place, disappear, and show up in another.
