Illinois Basin District

In the continuance of deploying our expertise in tight, low permeability Mississippian carbonate reservoirs and the recognition of potential source rock plays, Woolsey Energy II, LLC has defined and accumulated leases in several counties in Illinois and Indiana. We are continuing to evaluate the potential in the Illinois Basin.

In our initial focus we drilled ten vertical wells on strategically defined acreage blocks, conducted detailed evaluation from the surface to the lowest stratigraphic interval using all available tools including regional studies, 2D and 3D seismic, well sample evaluation, gas detectors, drillstem test, cores, full suites of electric logs, oil and natural gas analysis, and varied completions as dictated by the data. WE WILL KNOW THIS BASIN.

Development strategy will be through both vertical and horizontal wells, for both conventional and unconventional “Tight Rock” and “Source Rock” reservoirs.

We also drilled a horizontal evaluation well in the Basin and are active in completion evaluation of this well. We have completed over 150 square miles of 3D seismic. Our studies indicate several reservoir targets hold potential for commercial production of oil and natural gas. Developing these potential reservoirs will bring tremendous growth to the region including new jobs and increased revenue to the states, counties and land owners.

Based on our vision and mission in the Illinois Basin, we are developing and implementing strategies for long term growth, and to date it is very encouraging.
