Anadarko's raises Haley tight gas output

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, Feb. 9 -- Anadarko Petroleum Corp. said its gross production from the Haley area of West Texas averaged 121 MMcfd of gas equivalent in the last quarter of 2005.

Annual 2005 gross production was 106 MMcfd.

The company holds 145,000 net acres of leases and fee minerals, up 33% from the third quarter of 2005. The area is in Loving, Ward, and Winkler counties (OGJ Online, Feb. 4, 2005).

Anadarko said the University 20-29 No. 1 well appears to have extended the productive limits 5 miles to the south, while the Ludeman 22-1 was a 7-mile north step-out.

Rowan Cos. Inc. is to bring in four new rigs in the first half of 2006, contributing to the drilling of 36 wells planned in 2006. At least four wells will be in new areas or extend limits.

Anadarko completed 16 of 18 wells drilled at Haley in 2005 and suspended two for mechanical issues.

The Haley area of the Delaware basin produces from Pennsylvanian Morrow, Atoka, and Strawn and Permian Wolfcamp. Morrow, deepest of the four, is at 15,000-17,500 ft.
