Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) - Eagle Ford Shale

By Tim -

Cabot Oil & Gas (COG) provided an oil & natural gas drilling update in the Eagle Ford Shale play located in South Texas.

Cabot's Eagle Ford activity drove the 68 percent increase in the Company's oil and liquids production between full years 2011 and 2010. This growth came from 29 net wells primarily located in the Company's Buckhorn area in South Texas. Of ten recent well successes, the 24-hour peak production rate for half of the wells has exceeded 1,000 barrels of oil per day, with a 30-day average increasing to around 575 barrels of oil per day. "We have continued our science efforts here to improve realizations in the play with a degree of success including increased EURs, higher reserves per foot completed and increases to initial maximum output rates," commented Dinges. "From these results we expect our oil resource potential to rise again in 2012 as we continue to enhance the play further by exploiting our ability to down-space locations in the field."
