Industry Brief

Abraxas Petroleum Corp. has completed its first Eagle Ford Shale well in South Texas. Blue Eagle Energy LLC, a joint venture of Abraxas formed with Rock Oil Co. (formerly Blue Stone Oil & Gas LLC) last year (see Daily GPI, Aug. 30, 2010), drilled the T Bird 1H well in DeWitt County, TX, to a total depth of 19,450 feet, including a 5,700-foot lateral. The well was completed with a 15-stage fracture stimulation and recently placed online at a restricted rate approximately 75 days after spudding, according to San Antonio-based Abraxas. The well is being opened slowly to prevent formation damage and an unrestricted rate will be announced in the near future.
