Wolfberry can be a frustrating trend to operate. There is some debate as to how far fracs penetrate, what is the optimum spacing, and where are the sweetspots. That being said, it is still reliable and profitable as evidenced by all the A&D activity in the area (as noted in earlier entries of this blog).
So here is a quick highlight of Andrews County. It is on the western edge of the trend north of the sweetspot counties of Midland and Upton. This area should not be overlooked as there is still much activity and some nice wells, some coming on strong at 200 BOPD.
Below is a map of the county, colored by operator and bubbled by PracIP (Drillinginfo slang for second month production). The larger bubbles indicate sweetspots. The big boys of the play are here like Clayton Williams, Henry, and Pioneer as well as some smaller operators like Opal and Reef. Opal is operating in the NE area of this county with 17 Andrews County Wolfberry permits already this year.
Here is a quick view of the production history of these leases. It is generated rather quickly and easily using the HPDI Production Tools. We are approaching almost 1 MMBO cumulative and 650,000 Mcf of associated gas.
We will be keeping track of operators quarterly reports in the Wolfberry Unconventional Update as well as blogging about any noteworthy findings so keep checking back.
