Gulf Coast Western

Gulf Coast Western announced in the acquisition of 3,500 acres in Wilson County, Texas.

The company will bypass expensive completions in the Eagle Ford with plans to drill 10 horizontal wells targeting the Buda Limestone.

As more wells are drilled in South Texas, operators will find opportunity in other formations. It will be interesting to see how development programs in plays like the Austin Chalk and Buda perform.
