The company will target the Wolfcamp B in all four initial wells with plans to obtain cores and perform data gathering and analysis to best determine the optimal development of its White Wolf acreage. With initial drilling at White Wolf providing a technical framework for full-scale development, Rosehill plans to acquire 3D seismic of the area in this year’s second quarter. Core analysis will be performed on Wolfcamp A, Wolfcamp B, and the Bone Spring intervals.

The majority of Rosehill’s White Wolf wells will have lateral lengths of 5,000 ft, but the company has said at least 4-8 of the planned wells this year will have extended laterals of more than 7,000 ft.

On Mar. 8, Rosehill’s 90-day additional acreage acquisition window closed on its original purchase agreement. The company added no acreage in its White Wolf area, leaving the company’s total acreage intact at 6,505 net acres.

The company has two core Delaware basin assets, the other to the north in Loving County where Rosehill reported production of 13,000 net boe/d for the first week of March, 72% of which was oil. Rosehill has completed six wells with initial flowback and clean up planned within the next few weeks. The company has two rigs drilling and one dedicated frac crew.

Rosehill Resources was formed in 2017 through the combination of Tema Oil & Gas Co. and KLR Energy Acquisition Corp. (OGJ Online, Dec. 20, 2016).
