Lucas Energy began the re-entry of the Stoeltje No.2 well on May 3, 2010. The well is a re-entry of a horizontal well in the Austin Chalk formation. The well is expected to be completed within the next few weeks.

William A. Sawyer, President and CEO of Lucas Energy, said, "We are continuing to develop our resources in Wilson County, Texas. Lucas Energy expects to not only have good success with this well in the Austin Chalk lateral but anticipates a potential Eagle Ford play on this lease."
