A Fayetteville shale test resulted in a Pennsylvanian gas discovery as Seeco Inc., a unit of Southwestern Energy, Houston, drilled its #1-32 Arklan 9-11 in Section 32-9n-11w more than a mile east of Quitman in Cleburne County, Ark. Although it didn’t give measured flows, Seeco said the well showed a substantial flow of gas from a northwest-trending Middle Hale channel sand between 3,180 and 3,223 ft. The well is within 0.75-mile of two inactive wells that made up Quitman Field and more than a mile east of the closest Fayetteville production in New Quitman Field, according to IHS Inc. The #1 R.A. Evans, opener for the Pennsylvanian field, flowed 5 million cu. ft. of gas a day from three McGuire zones from 1,956-88 ft. It was abandoned after producing 49 million cu. ft. of gas.
