Strike Energy JV Adds Eagle Ford Acreage

Strike Energy now holds over 6,200 net acres across southern Fayette County and Lavaca County. Drilling will start sometime in the fourth quarter or early 2012.  

Strike has a 27.5% working interest in Eagle Landing Joint Venture, which has been building a lease hold position within the Eagle Ford Shale trend in Texas. The Eagle Ford Shale has rapidly emerged as one of the USA’s most sought after unconventional gas and liquids plays.


The Joint Venture has now increased its lease position to 22,764 acres (6,260 acres net to Strike). Recently reported production rates from Eagle Ford Shale wells adjacent to Strike’s acreage have confirmed the extension of the Eagle Ford productive trend. The Joint Venture is planning to further evaluate the acreage through a drilling program over the next six months.
