HOUSTON, July 14
-- Clayton Williams Energy Inc., Midland, Tex., said its second Eagle Ford shale well, Smalley-Robinson Unit-1 in Burleson County, Tex., flowed 492 b/d of oil initially and 175 b/d most recently from a 5,500-ft lateral in Eagle Ford at 7,020 ft true vertical depth after a 13-stage frac.

The well is 11-1/2 miles from the first well, Broesche Unit-1, which flowed 234 b/d initially and is on pump at 46 b/d. The company will drill a third well to evaluate acreage in the western part of its Austin chalk acreage block and may drill other wells to determine whether an Eagle Ford shale drilling program is economically viable.

The company owns 100% working interest in both wells.
