Infinity Energy Resources Inc., Overland Park, Kan., will shoot the seismic to help evaluate the combined 1.4 million acres of concessions. Infinity Energy said it retained Robert Fleming, a 38-year geosciences veteran, as a geophysical consultant to evaluate the seismic data once collected.

Infinity Energy also noted that a Noble Energy Inc. group is drilling the initial exploratory well on Noble’s 1.8 million-acre concessions adjacent east of Tyra and Perlas. Noble spudded the well in late August and said it expected to announce results within about 90 days.
