Texas: Crimson updates Woodbine, Buda drilling

Crimson Exploration Inc., Houston, said the second Woodbine oil well in its 2013 capital program came on line at 984 b/d of oil, 437 Mcfd of gas, and 86 b/d of natural gas liquids on a 26/64-in. choke.

The company has an 82.8% working interest in the Mosley B-1H well in Madison County, Tex., drilled to 15,366 ft measured total depth with a 6,044-ft lateral. Completion involved a 22-stage frac.

The Payne B-1H well 1 mile east is drilling at 11,925 ft toward an estimated MTD of 15,740 ft and is to have a 6,600-ft lateral in Woodbine and a 22-stage frac. Crimson has an 83.5% working interest. After drilling, the rig will move 1 mile north to drill the Grace Hall C-1H well.

In Grimes County, Tex., Crimson’s midstream provider has begun initial start-up of the Central NGL Refrigeration Unit that will serve the Covington-Upchurch 1H. The well has been producing from the Woodbine-Lewisville sand at 1.9 MMcfd of gas and 100 b/d of oil on a small choke throughout the delay of plant start-up. Once the plant is fully operational, the Covington-Upchurch 1H will begin producing under normal conditions.

In Dimmit County, Tex., the Beeler-2H well in which Crimson has 50% working interest is drilling at 6,025 ft toward an estimated 11,180 ft measured total depth to include a 4,000-ft lateral in the Buda formation. As typical for the area, a natural completion is planned. Crimson holds 8,475 gross acres prospective for the Buda formation in its Booth-Tortuga area. Beeler-2H is Crimson’s first well targeting the Buda.
