BRADENTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Promising early production from a new horizontal well in Logan County, Okla., has First Titan Corp. (OTCBB:FTTN) increasingly excited about the potential for its own assets in the region.
Last month, one of FTTN’s competitors, Osage Exploration and Development, Inc. (OTCBB: OEDV) announced that the 72-hour Initial Production rate on its Wolf 1-29 horizontal well in Kay County, Okla., averaged over 1,185 BOE/D. The total production was composed of approximately 85 percent oil and 15 percent high BTU natural gas, and the average production during the first full 30 days on the Wolf was over 876 BOE/D.
The well was drilled to a vertical depth of 5,816 feet with a lateral bore length of 4,104 feet and was treated with a multi-stage hydraulic fracking job.
Osage’s highly encouraging preliminary results have increased FTTN’s expectations for its own horizontal well project in Logan County. Last month, the company acquired a working interest in a similar horizontal well known as Breaux #2 that is drilled to a vertical depth of 5,456 feet with a lateral bore length of 2,704 and which is being prepared for a completion with a multi-stage hydraulic fracking job.
The well sponsor, Bedford Energy, Inc., has had the Breaux #2 well engineered. The Petroleum Engineers reserve report based on wells close by shows proven reserves of 160,000 bbls of oil and 1.5 million mcf of natural gas, estimating potential production at more than $14 million worth of resources.
Bedford Energy estimates the well completion at between 30 and 60 days from funding, potentially providing a quick return on investment in the project.
First Titan Corp. is aggressively pursuing promising new oil and gas opportunities throughout the Southern U.S. Breaux #2 is FTTN’s fourth working interest in prospective domestic wells. The company has already acquired working interests in three new wells in Texas, Louisiana and Alabama this year.
