Contango Oil & Gas Co. expects to complete two wells in June from a common pad in its Delaware basin acreage in Pecos County, Tex.

The Sidewinder No. 1H well, spud in March, was drilled to a total measured depth of 20,550 ft into the Wolfcamp A horizon just south of the operator’s Rude Ram No. 1H, which has produced 155,000 boe in 9 months.

The second well—Gunner No. 3H—was spud on Apr. 4 and is at 4,700 ft, Contango said.

This Wolfcamp B test will be completed with a 10,000-ft lateral in the same unit as the Gunner No. 2H, which Contango said is the company’s best producing well to date totaling 130,000 boe in 6 months.
