Are any areas in Arkansas finding some prosperity now with oil boom?

I think the southwestern corner, where the Brown Dense shale is, is experiencing some success.

There was some talk about reopening some of the capped wells in south AR, but now that the price of crude has dropped I don't know if they will follow through.

yeah, my friends in southwest ark, who are in the oil exploration and production business, hate low crude prices. it slows both and they even caps some wells and wait for price increases.

now me, on the other hand, take a day like today where crude was down $2.86 and gas was down .10, i know that my travels will be cheaper. that makes me happy.

Lots of natural gas fields in Arkansas.

The Smackover Brown Dense will probably not show widespread economic viability, based on the results publicized so far, oil price notwithstanding. There is a pocket or two south of the state line into Louisiana that have showed somewhat decent production, but I think the plays are limited. As far as I know, there is no liquid success in the brown dense inside the state of Arkansas.
