Carrizo accumulates land in US shale plays

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, July 24 -- Carrizo Oil & Gas Inc., a Houston independent with 82,000 net acres in the Fort Worth basin Barnett shale play, said it has accumulated more than 200,000 net acres in other US shale plays.

Based on geological and geochemical criteria, Carrizo has under lease or option 70,000 net acres in the Barnett-Woodford shale play in West Texas-New Mexico, 100,000 net acres in the Floyd-Neal shale play in the Black Warrior basin in Mississippi-Alabama, 18,000 net acres in the New Albany shale play in the Illinois basin in western Kentucky, and 12,000 net acres in the Fayetteville shale play in the Arkoma basin in Arkansas.

Drilling commitments are limited to two wells in the next 12 months.

The company is preparing to begin testing the Floyd shale with a 3D survey and horizontal wells and to drill horizontal Barnett Shale wells in "Tier 2" Erath County, Tex., and high potential core wells in southeast Tarrant County, Tex.

The Future of US Refining

When Fri, Feb 6, 2015

Oil & Gas Journal’s Feb. 6, 2015, webcast will focus on the future of US refining as various forces this year conspire to pull the industry in different directions. Lower oil prices generally reduce feedstock costs, but they have also lowered refiners’ returns, as 2015 begins with refined products priced at lows not seen in years. If lower per-barrel crude prices dampen production of lighter crudes among shale plays, what will happen to refiners’ plans to export more barrels of lighter crudes? And as always, refiners will be affected by government regulations, particularly those that suppress demand, increase costs, or limit access to markets or supply.
