HOUSTON, June 17
– Abraxas Petroleum Corp., San Antonio, improved production from a horizontal Cretaceous Edwards well in DeWitt County, Tex., with a six-stage frac.

The company has also identified three more locations on existing leasehold.

Nordheim-2H came on line in January 2009 at 6 MMcfd, natural, from the first section of the lateral and was choked back to 3 MMcfd.

After the six-stage frac, the well is capable of more than 10 MMcfd, exceeding expectations. It is restricted to 4.6 MMcfd due to low gas prices.

Abraxas is operator with 75% working interest.
