Lexington Completes 4th Successful CBM Well on Wagnon Lease
Lexington Resources has successfully completed drilling on its fourth horizontal Coal Bed Methane gas well (Calleigh #4-2) located on its Wagnon Lease in Pittsburg County, Oklahoma in the Hartshorne coal target. The Calleigh #4-2 well was drilled to a vertical depth of approximately 2,900 feet with a horizontal section of 1,800 feet. Initial readings reveal gas flows of up to 300 MCF/day, with expected increases as dewatering procedures normal to CBM wells take place. The gas produced by the well is subject to gas content and grade analysis, but is expected to be similar to the other wells on the Wagnon Lease providing CO2 content of about 3% and 1,000 BTU gas.
This completion is the fourth of up to five wells to be drilled on the Wagnon Lease.
The drilling site is located in the Hartshorne coal zone fairway of the prolific Arkoma Basin, in the middle of one of the largest CBM drilling programs undertaken in the State of Oklahoma. According to the Oklahoma Geological Survey, 865 (40%) of the 2,179 CBM completions in Oklahoma from 1988 to 2002 were located in the Arkoma Basin. An average of 153 horizontal CBM wells completed in Hartshorne coal have provided initial production that averages 0.418 MMCF per day.
The Company also reports that drilling on the "LEX 1" horizontal Coal Bed Methane well on its Coal Creek property in Hughes County, Oklahoma is nearing the 2,400 foot level and has now entered the coal bed seam. Based on this progress, the Company expects the completion of the well within two weeks. The Company has installed a permanent access road and pipeline infrastructure on this site to ensure the immediate tie-in of gas flows to a major pipeline and follow-on drilling.
The Coal Creek Prospect is the second of six leased areas slated for
drilling by the Company as part of the development of its Arkoma Basin gas
