Abraxas Petroleum Eagle Ford Well Results – September

Abraxas Petroleum provided an operations update on the Eagle Ford. The company’s first well in DeWitt County produced more almost 260,000 barrels equivalent in the first seven months and is currently producing 800 barrels of oil equivalent per day. A Talisman operated well, in which the company has an interest, came online in mid-August producing 1,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day after the companies completed a 14 stage frac stimulation. Abraxas is completing a horizontal well with 18 frack stages in Atascosa County and plans to drill two wells in McMullen County before year end.

Abraxas has over 12,000 net acres that stretch across Atascosa, DeWitt, Lavaca, and McMullen counties. The company reports having as many as 75 net drilling locations on 160-acre spacing. [Read more…]

Jadela – GasFrac’s Eagle Ford El Indio #1-H Propane Frack Test

Jadela’s El Indio #1-H Eagle Ford well that was completed with a GasFrac propane frack or LPG frack was tested over the past couple of weeks. The companies injected over 225,000 gallons of liquid propane and butane into the formation. The well test results are a little difficult to interpret because production was limited by the LPG fluid recovery system. The most recent 24 hr period produced 210 barrels of oil and 706 mcf. It’s still early to declare success, but those aren’t bad numbers for Maverick County, TX.

It will be interesting to see just how much propane and butane Jadela was able to recover. LPG’s are expensive frack fluids, but you get to resale the fluid if it can be recovered. [Read more…]
