Drilling of the Jackson-Williams #3 well commenced on September 1, 2007. The operator reached a total depth of 13,856 feet on October 23, 2007, and subsequently evaluated the well using electric logs, which indicated multiple productive gas sands between 11,000 and 13,600 feet in the over-pressured Wilcox section. During the drilling process the well encountered reservoir pressures in excess of 10,000 psi.
The well is part of an exploratory test on a new fault block in the Morales East Field of Jackson County, Texas. When completed the Jackson-Williams #3 well will be the fourth well in the area for Saxon.
Morales East is a prolific gas-producing field with significant historical production from multiple sandstones trapped in several fault-bounded reservoirs. Saxon has a 0.85% interest in this well. Completion activity should commence shortly, with first production in the fourth quarter of 2007.
