SilverBow Resources Inc. provided an update on April 19 including results from the Houston-based independent E&P company’s first Austin Chalk well, which it said continues to outperform expectations.

In a company release, SilverBow said its first Austin Chalk well, which came online in February, initially produced an average of 12.9 MMcf/d of natural gas in the 30 days of production. The well, located in Webb County, Texas, had a lateral length of 8,300 ft and an all-in well cost of approximately $6 million.

“Furthermore, early results from our first Austin Chalk well are very encouraging, setting up the potential to add more locations to our high rate of return drilling inventory” SilverBow CEO Sean Woolverton noted in a statement.
