About the Prospect

The #1 Lutters well was planned for a total depth of 4,500 feet. The well is targeting oil in the Mississippi Dolomite and/or Cherokee sands. The location shows a significant 3D Seismic anomaly pinpointing a probable oil bearing zone. In addition, the 750 acre lease block has the potential for a multi-well program with 2 to 3 offset locations possible to fully exploit the acreage. Engineering estimates of the potential production from the indicated pay zone is between 35 and 100 barrels per day from a successful well. Full development of the field could produce up to 400 BOPD of light oil. There is excellent transportation and support infrastructure in the area easily supporting a requisite storage tank battery at the location.
