Breitling Oil and Gas Announces Spud of Breitling-Big Tex #1 in Gaines County, TX
IRVING, TX (June 30, 2011) –
Breitling Oil and Gas Corporation, an independent exploration and production company based in Irving, Texas, announced that it has spud the Breitling-Big Tex #1 on June 26, 2011 in Gaines County, Texas. The Breitling-Big Tex #1 is the first of three Big Tex prospect wells to be drilled.
The Breitling-Big Tex #1 is a 9,000-foot vertical well within the established Tex-Pac Field and is targeting Lower Clearfork Dolomite beneath 8,500 feet. Secondary objectives include the San Andres, Yates, Glorieta and Abo formations.
Breitling’s 3-Well Breitling-Big Tex Prospect was developed after a 75-square-mile 3D seismic shoot was reprocessed and interpreted in 2010. The quality of the new data set after it was re-imaged using Breitling’s proprietary Geo3D technology identified features that were not noticeable when the shoot first occurred. In essence the resultant seismic lines were much more detailed and refined, therefore capturing subsurface images not previously acknowledged.
Breitling Oil and Gas expects to recover reserves of 350,000-500,000 BO per well.
Management anticipates the first well will reach total depth in about 29 days. Well completion and testing should begin during the last week of July. Breitling Oil and Gas and its drilling partner Sandridge Energy plan to drill all three wells back-to-back using the same drilling rig.
Breitling Oil and Gas CEO Chris Faulkner stated, “We are excited to be working with Sandridge Energy on the Big Tex wells.” Faulkner added, “We have great well control within the Tex-Pac field and great 3D seismic over the prospect.”
