Verdun formed three 1300+ acre units in the Shepherd Survey A-94, near Shelby near the Fayette/Austin County line. They’ve permitted a first well in each unit but with all to be drilled from the same pad that will be off Wunderlich Road east of FM 389.
The new locations are two miles south of the Belleau Wood and Saint-Mihel wells Verdun completed on the other side of Shelby in Dec. 2019. They were strictly gas but each has made over 4 BCF in the first 18 months. Verdun, like Geosouthern in Washington County, must have decided the numbers work for straight gas wells as long as they are big ones.
