Duke Unit - SWEET Spot in Hill Co?

The first readings of production from Forest Oil's first frac'd Duke Unit, just east of Peoria. Could this be Hill county's sweet spot?
According to the TX/RRC this is the largest IP volume recorded in the Hill county Barnett so far. (Thanks to my friend William Morrison, aka 'Oilguy' for verifying those stats)

These meters record production volume from the Duke lease. One meter is for the lease, the other for 'final sales' shown in photos below.
