As part of the oil-rich Tuscaloosa Marine Shale (TMS) Play, Pike County represents an unparalleled energy opportunity in a region that has already drawn leaders such as Devon, Indigo Minerals, Goodrich, Denbury, Encana, Sanchez and Halcon.
The reason is simple: exploration wells are consistently coming in over 1,000 barrels of oil a day, and over 9 billion barrels PIP, and EUR’s of hundreds of thousands of barrels. It took millions of years for the rich veins of this Cretaceous-age shale to form, but now the wait is over. Here in Pike County we are ready to assist companies as exploration escalates through both hydraulic fracturing and horizontal drilling technology.
In 2011, the prestigious Fraser Institute ranked Mississippi as the #1 location in the world for energy investment. Mississippi already has more natural gas flowing through pipelines than any other state in the nation. Now, with oil wells flowing, the opportunities for Power Generation, Oil and Gas Processing and Oil Field supply are endless.
In the race for natural gas and oil in the TMS Play, Pike County is the winning location.
