Carrizo Oil & Gas will test a Pearsall Shale well in late 2012. The Eagle Ford Shale is the company’s primary focus in Frio, La Salle, McMullen, and Atascosa counties, but the Pearsall could add additional resource to the company’s portfolio. The first test will spud in late November 2012 in Frio County. Just a couple of weeks ago, Cabot Reported Pearsall Shale Well Results that looked promising. Carrizo is following suit.

Carizzo also added 2,000 acres in La Salle County during the third quarter of 2012. The company now has more than 48,000 net acres prospective for the Eagle Ford. That acreage is predominately located in La Salle County, but stretches across three neighboring counties as well. The Pearsall is prospective on 30,000+ acres of the company’s position, but it will take several exploration wells before the company knows where the play has liquids potential.

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…]
