HOUSTON, Mar. 9 – Breitling Oil & Gas Corp., Irving, Tex., has spudded a development well to Holmes sand and Mississippian Chappel dolomite in Hardeman County, Tex.
The company purchased three 2D seismic lines to verify the structural and stratigraphic position of the Holmes sand at the Breitling-Turner-1 drillsite. The well is on a 640-acre closure. Projected depth is 7,600 ft.
Breitling said the Holmes is a high-quality sand reservoir encased in the Barnett shale. At least two proved undeveloped locations exist.
