Comstock reports Eagle Ford shale well results

Comstock Resources Inc., Frisco, Tex., reported successful results of its first well drilled in its East Texas extension of the Eagle Ford shale in Burleson County, Tex.

The Henry A No. 1H well, drilled to a vertical depth of 9,514 ft, tested at a peak 24-hr average production rate of 1,267 boe/d (1,023 b/d of oil and 1.5 MMcfd of natural gas). The well had a 6,841-ft completed lateral that was stimulated with 17 stages and 10.2 million lb of proppant.

Comstock has 33,900 gross acres (30,400 net) prospective for oil in its Burleson County East Texas Eagle Ford shale play. Comstock’s second well drilled in Burleson County—the Mach A No. 1H—recently reached total depth and will be completed in July, the company said. Locations have been built for the next two wells: the Flencher A No. 1H and the Curington A No. 1H. Comstock has plans to drill 10 gross (9.2 net) wells this year on its acreage in this new play.
