CREDO Updates Drilling Results in Beaver County, Oklahoma.
DENVER--(BUSINESS WIRE)--June 4, 2001
CREDO Petroleum Corporation (NASDAQ: CRED) today announced completion results of an important company well located in Beaver County, Oklahoma.
The 7,800-foot Bill-Judy Brown No.1-6 well was recently drilled to test the Morrow and St. Louis formations. The well has been completed in the Morrow formation and was tested at an absolute open flow rate of approximately 3.3 million cubic feet of gas per day (MMcfgd) and three to four barrels of oil. The well is currently producing on a 20/64-inch choke at a daily rate of 1.56 MMcfg and eight barrels of oil. The company is continuing to prudently ramp-up the well's production to an optimum rate. CREDO owns a 60 percent working interest and a 49 percent net revenue interest in the well, and is the operator.
The Bill-Judy Brown well was drilled as an offset to the Wilkerson No.1 well which was recently completed in the Lower Morrow sands flowing 500 barrels of oil and 200 Mcfg per day. CREDO owns a 15 percent interest in the Wilkerson well.
James T. Huffman, President, stated: "The Bill-Judy Brown and Wilkerson No.1 wells are located in our core drilling area along the Anadarko Shelf of northwestern Oklahoma. These wells clearly demonstrate the excellent potential this area holds for drilling." Huffman further stated, "Our acreage position in the area is sufficient to accommodate offset drilling locations to both wells."
