By OGJ editors

Quicksilver Resources Inc., Fort Worth, said it expects to begin an exploratory drilling program of as many as seven vertical and horizontal wells later this month in the Sand Wash basin of northwestern Colorado.

The company, which holds 260,000 net acres across 936 sq miles in the basin, expects to drill the wells and install gathering facilities in 2012.

The company said it believes 210,000 net acres are situated in the oil window and are prospective to the Niobrara and Lower Mancos formations.
