The Tuscaloosa Marine Shale (TMS) is an oil-rich shale located in southwest Mississippi and northeast Louisiana. Securing a 62,000-acre position in what we believe to be the core of the TMS provides the scale to make a meaningful new basin for us. Our lease terms enable us to take a measured capital approach to the TMS while the industry de-risks the play.
