Fossil Oil Makes Discoveries in Texas Counties

change text size

Fossil Oil Company, LLC announced its newest gas/condensate discoveries by first drilling the deep, 3D seismic-based Cook Mountain well in Liberty Co., TX, and a second oil/gas discovery by drilling a dual-stacked, horizontal well into the Buda and Georgetown formations in Brazos Co., TX.

The Bandit #1 Well is a deep 15,000 feet Cook Mountain (Yegua Sand) formation that tested on a conservative 7/64th choke flowing 140 Barrels of Oil and 1.3 Million Cubic Feet of Gas. Opening the choke to a 10/64th, testers measured the gas volume over 2 Million Cubic Feet of Gas a day and the oil to nearly 300 Barrels of Condensate per day. The flowing tubing pressure remained stable at 8,500 psi throughout the 48 hour test. A pipeline is being built and the tank battery installed currently.

The Gary Bryant #1H Well is a 9,200-feet vertical well with 3,500-foot laterals in the Buda formation and in the Georgetown formation. This well was flowing gas and oil throughout the drilling of each of the stacked laterals. A pipeline is currently being installed to the interstate sale line along with the production facility.

"What a sight to behold," said Fossil Oil's President Dennis R. Kittler during the initial flaring of the gas while cleaning up during the well testing.
