Breitling O&G announced that the Burr #1, the first well in its Gulf Coast Onshore initiative in Jefferson County, Texas, is being completed as an oil and gas producer after reaching a total vertical depth of 14,400 feet.
From original log analysis, the well had several potentially productive pay zones over a gross interval in the Hackberry Sand. The well was re-entered, cleaned, screened and gravel packed to prevent formation sand from re-entering the well bore. Well testing and completion plans are being finalized and the well should be tied into paid sales within 30 days.
Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Oil and Gas, said, "The Burr #1 was a deep well and we are excited to have three perfs in the Hackberry that look productive." Faulkner added, "We have been on location three months and are certainly excited to finally be in the completion window."
In May 2010, Breitling announced it has acquired thousands of acres of leases in the Gulf Coast regions of Texas and Louisiana as it continues to expand its Gulf Coast Onshore initiative. Breitling identified 29 future oil and gas drilling locations within the acreage.
