Crimson completes Eagle Ford well in Zavala County, Tex.

Crimson Exploration Inc., Houston, completed its KM Ranch No. 2H well in the Eagle Ford shale in Zavala County, Tex., and reported gross initial production rate of 457 b/d of oil and 326 Mcfd of natural gas.

The well was drilled to 12,875 ft, including 5,250 ft of perforated lateral and 16 fracturing stages.

Crimson has 50% working interest in the well, and the company previously delayed completion to further understand optimal completion techniques beginning developed by other area operators.

Crimson has 6,550 net acres in Zavala and Dimmit counties (OGJ Online, July 12, 2012).

Allan D. Keel, Crimson president and chief executive officer, said, “We believe the progression of improved results by Crimson and other offset operators has demonstrated that the Eagle Ford is an economically viable play in this part of the trend. Recent higher initial production rate wells drilled by other operators in the eastern portion of Zavala County, and immediately adjacent to Crimson’s leasehold, have been completed with average effective lateral lengths of approximately 7,500 ft.”

Crimson’s next phase of development in this area will involve drilling laterals longer than 7,000 ft, he said.
