Eagleford Energy Inc. (Eagleford Energy or the Company), announces that the Company's wholly owned subsidiary, Dyami Energy LLC (Dyami Energy) has commenced drilling an Eagleford shale test well, on its 2,637 acre Murphy Lease in Zavala County, Texas. Accumulated petrophysical data indicates that the Murphy Lease sits atop Serpentine plugs with multi-stacked formations such as the Escondido, Olmos, San Miguel, Anacacho, Austin Chalk, Eagle Ford shale, Buda and the Georgetown formations prospective to host hydrocarbons.
Alan Gaines, Director, stated, "We have several stacked targets on the Murphy lease supported by logs and data from Weatherford International. Of significant import, total organic content, permeability and porosity indicate that the Eagle Ford formation on the Murphy lease held by Dyami Energy has similar petrophysical attributes of commercially productive wells within the established oil window of this prolific play."
The Company's Murphy lease is located in northeast Zavala County, Texas, and is part of the Maverick Basin of Southwest Texas, downdip from the United States Geological Studies northern boundary of the Smackover-Austin-Eagle Ford total petroleum system. This area is often referred to as the "oil window" of the present Eagle Ford shale play. Data derived from cores, logs and analysis of prior Murphy Eagle Ford wells demonstrates this lease to be in this oil window.
