Breitling Spuds Well in Hardemann County
Breitling has spud the Breitling-Stepp prospect in Hardemann County, Texas on May 28, 2011.
The Stepp NE well is scheduled to be drilled to a depth of approximately 8600' or to a depth sufficient to test the Mississippian Chappel reef. The Prospect is located 7 miles southeast of the Quanah townsite. The Mississippian-aged rock is a fractured, often vugular limestone which tends to be highly dolomitized.
Management anticipates the well will reach total depth in about 18 days. Well completion and testing should begin during the last week of June.
Breitling Oil and Gas CEO Chris Faulkner stated, "We are excited to continue our drilling efforts in Hardeman County with the Breitling-Stepp #1." Faulkner added, "The Mississippian Chappel has produced some great wells for us in the area and we feel confident that our 3D-seismic shoot has found another interesting anomaly within our acreage position here."
An additional 4 wells can be drilled if commercial production is found in the initial test well. Breitling has current oil and gas exploration projects all over the United States.
