At the tailgate of the processing plant, this well has produced an average of 275 Boepd, of which 58% is oil and 24% is natural gas liquids. Abraxas owns a 100% working interest in this well.
In Alberta, the Twining 9-11 was drilled to a total measured depth of 10,650 feet, including a 5,250 foot lateral in the Pekisko formation, and completed with a 14-stage acid stimulation. This well was recently placed on-line and over the past 18 days has produced an average of 108 Boepd, of which 73% is oil. Canadian Abraxas owns a 100% working interest in this well.
"The results of the Spires and the Twining wells surpassed our expectations and represent a good start to our conventional oil development program that will be the focus of most of our activity during the first half of 2011. Additional drilling is planned to commence in early April in West Texas with a six well program and after spring break-up in Alberta with as many as four additional wells. Our South Texas oil development program is scheduled to commence within the next two weeks," commented Bob Watson, Abraxas’ President and CEO.
