Texas-Panhandle

By OGJ editors
HOUSTON, June 2
– Linn Energy LLC, Houston, said its first operated horizontal Granite Wash well in the Texas Panhandle tested at 10.8 MMcfd of gas and 634 b/d of condensate.

The McMahan 22-2H, in Frye Ranch field of Wheeler County, produced gas with a heating value of 1,300 btu/cf that when processed should yield 1,250 bbl of natural gas liquids.

Linn Energy has 57% working interest in the well, which had 12 frac stages in a 4,100-ft lateral and was drilled in 36 days for $6.8 million.

The company, which holds 73,000 net acres in the Texas Panhandle and southwestern Oklahoma, has cased its second operated horizontal Granite Wash well, Black 50-1H, in which it has 63% working interest.

It has identified more than 100 drilling locations in the Texas Panhandle alone and has secured a second operated rig to begin work in mid-June. It has added eight wells to its 2010 program.
