The #1H Link-VJ Ranch 55-2-27 LOV flowed 2.61 MMcf of gas, 766 bbl of 47.9-degree-gravity oil and 3.933 Mbbl of water daily from acid- and fracture-treated perforations at 11,646-21,881 ft. Gauged on a 32/64-in. choke, the flowing tubing pressure was 2,323 psi, and the shut-in tubing pressure was 3,176 psi. It was drilled to 22,075 ft, 11,126 ft true vertical, and bottomed 2 miles to the north in Section 22.
