The status of several oil wells drilled by Southwestern Energy remains somewhat of an enigma for Union Parish.

However, after Southwestern shut in a well and slowed the pace of its lease purchases, rumors began to circulate that the company was pulling out of the parish. However, those rumors are unfounded based on statements released by the company in August.
According to their Website, one of the wells, the BML, has been shut in for testing and pipeline negotiations.
