HOUSTON, Apr. 6 -- Falcon Natural Gas Corp., Houston, and Edwin S. Nichols Exploration Inc., Meridian, Tex., plan to start drilling the Pecan Station North prospect 3 miles north of Pecan Station oil field in Nolan County, Tex.
Falcon says the prospect has multipay possibilities in the Palo Pinto Lime and the Harkey sand. Pecan Station field has produced over 1.1 million bbl of oil from the Palo Pinto Lime.
The first well will twin a 1960 hole that recovered gas on a drillstem test from 15 ft of pay in the Harkey sand. An offset well was not completed in the gas zone. Palo Pinto Lime will be a secondary objective in the new well.
A reentry well will target the Palo Pinto Lime as the primary candidate with the Harkey sand as a secondary objective.
In Pecan Station field, Palo Pinto Lime wells with log characteristics similar to those in the reentry candidate have had initial flows of 100-600 b/d of oil and have average cumulative production of 150,000 boe/well.
Falcon, which has purchased a 75% working interest, says Harkey sand wells are capable of producing 500 Mcfd-1 MMcfd of gas, with some wells exceeding 2 MMcfd.
