Halliburton have been contracted to conduct the completion stimulation of the Burkett 5-34HOR well for the Vail Oil Project, which company anticipates work beginning the week of Nov. 18.
Strata-X engaged Halliburton for the completion stimulation after conducting a detailed examination of the data gathered from the core of the targeted Devonian Lingle formation along with data collected during the drilling of the well and from the breakdown and pressure test conducted after the lateral liner was set. The Burkett 5-34HOR was drilled as a test of the Devonian Lingle formation and reached a total depth of 6,762 feet including a 1,824 foot lateral. During the drilling of the well in the targeted Devonian Lingle formation, oil and gas shows were encountered and oil was visible in the drilling mud.
The company owns a 100% working interest in the well and 48,300 net acres in the Vail Oil Project overall.
