HOUSTON, June 8 – BreitBurn Energy Partners LP, Los Angeles, said a horizontal development well it completed in early May in Florida’s onshore Sunniland Trend is making 1,200 b/d of oil, more than double the rate the company used in predrill economics.

The CL&CC 27-5AH, in Raccoon Point field, Collier County, also makes 1,500 b/d of water from the Cretaceous Sunniland C formation (see map, OGJ, Mar. 8, 2010, p. 32). The well has more than 1,500 ft of pay in the horizontal section at 11,407 ft true vertical depth.

The well has been on production 4 weeks, and reservoir pressure is such that oil cannot reach the surface without continuous operation of the electric submersible pump.

BreitBurn is drilling a second horizontal well in the field and expects results in July.

The Sunniland Trend has been producing oil since the first discovery well was drilled in the early 1940s. BreitBurn’s total production from the trend is 2,850 b/d. The company is operator with 100% working interest and 83.6% net revenue interest.
