Bluff 1-11 (SSN 25%)
Samson will be holding a JV partner meeting this week to discuss Samson’s intent to test the Permian Hartville 9500’ sand target zone after an additional petrophysical analysis was conducted by an outside consulting expert. This analysis confirms that the target zone shows “gas effect” on the logs and tested the gas cap, or the structurally highest point of the trap, which may contain an oil leg beneath it.
