Abraxas expects to be in a position to announce further acreage acquisitions in the Eagle Ford in the near future.
Bob Watson, President and CEO of Abraxas, commented, “The Lillibridge West pad again shows the benefit of our focused development program in the Bakken. With a team oriented culture allowing our geology, drilling and completion teams to work together seamlessly toward a common goal, and with a stalwart focus on attention to detail, we continue to show superior well results.
“Given the early results of the Blue Eyes 1H, we have elected to drill the Snake Eyes 1H on the company’s Jourdanton prospect in Atascosa County, Texas. We look forward to an active development program on our 4,000+ net acre, 100% working interest lease block at Jourdanton in 2014. “On the A&D front, Abraxas continues to execute on adding quality lease blocks in our targeted regions of the Eagle Ford as evidenced by the recent Dilworth East acquisition. The company is currently permitting its first well at Dilworth East, which it expects to spud early in the first quarter of 2014.”
