In its first quarter 2014 report, Halcón Resources made the claim that its entire East Texas El Halcón area is “de-risked and repeatable”. That may sound a little like a sales pitch, and likely, it is. Halcón Resources CEO, Floyd Wilson, has indicated within the last year that a sale of the company wouldn’t be out of the question. For the time being however, no definitive or official statements have been made by Halcón Resources, but it sounds like a nice bow is being wrapped around the company for a potential buyer.
During the first quarter, Halcón further strengthened its Eagle Ford position by divesting some of its’ non-core East Texas properties, and in a separate transaction in March 2014, the company acquired nine wells in El Halcón from Aresco LP. The purchase price of the wells was undisclosed.
