TEXACO COMPLETES HORIZONTAL INJECTOR IN SOUTHEAST TEXAS OIL FIELD

Texaco Exploration & Producing Inc. has moved to improve the efficiency of a mature waterflood with the first onshore horizontal injection well in Texas. Texaco completed its 70-2 New Hope Shallow Unit horizontal injection well late last December in New Hope field in Jackson County, Southeast Texas. The company is injecting water through the well's entire 1,500 ft horizontal section into the lower Cretaceous Pittsburgh reservoir at about 8,100 ft true vertical depth (TVD).
