Escondido Resources Horizontal Eagle Ford Drilling Results – 2011

Escondido Resources II announced well results from the company’s 2011 drilling program in South Texas.  Escondido drilled 17 wells in 2011 with an average IP rate of 7 mmcfd. That is not just Eagle Ford wells. The company has drilled a total of 29 wells since 2009, with 18 in the Escondido formation, 7 targeting the Olmos, and 5 targeting the Eagle Ford Shale. All 17 wells in 2011 were horizontal. 

The company primarily operates in Northern Webb County targeting the Escondido and Olmos formations, but also operates acreage in La Salle and McMullen counties.  The company owns the deeper Eagle Ford rights on over half its 60,000 net acres in the area.

The jewel of the Eagle Ford wells came online at 10 mmcfd of wet gas in late 2011 and another well that had good log shows is set to be completed in March.

    Is there any way that we can find out if we are in a unit that will be drilled this year?

    • R.T. Dukes RT Dukes says:

      The only real way to know is if the company has landmen that are willing to share information. If you know the name of your unit/lease, you can check the RRC website for new permits in your area.
