(Dallas, Texas) –– Aresco LP, a Dallas-based energy exploration and production company, today announced the acquisition of a significant working interest position in a 160-acre prospect in Oklahoma County, Oklahoma. The prospect acreage sits on the eastern edge of the Cherokee Platform on trend with the Oklahoma City Oil Field, which has produced over three billion barrels of oil since its discovery in 1929 according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration.
“Given the current soft pricing landscape, it’s more important than ever to evaluate opportunities based not only on ultimate recovery potential but on cost structure,” said Brandon Laxton, President and Founder of Aresco LP and Aresco Operating. “As such, we’ve been exploring opportunities to drill more shallow wells in proven producing fields with well-established infrastructure. With long-lived well production, this strategic move into Oklahoma provides attractive return potential at today’s prices while also setting our capital partners up for solid cash flow as prices continue to rebound.”
The first of two developmental wells is scheduled to begin drilling late-summer 2015 and will test two primary objectives, the Red Fork Sand and Hunton Lime, as well as a secondary objective, the Skinner Sand. Total commingled recovery from the three zones is estimated at 400,000 barrels of oil.
