Returning Unproductive Wells to Life

ARRESTING PRODUCTION DECLINES BY BRINGING WELLS BACK ONLINE

Objectives:

  • Enhance production on active, producing wells
  • Restimulate production on inactive, unproductive wells
  • Low decline and consistent production, creates stable operating costs

empire-north-dakota

Empire North Dakota

  • Production from the Mississippian age Madison Formation, more specifically the Spearfish and Mission Canyon zones. As you move west into Montana, in addition to the Madison, production also is derived from the Bakken, Duperow and Red River Formations.
  • Impressive, near-flat production rates over last five years
  • Operational improvements on three sub-optimally managed waterflood fields
  • Opportunity for shallow horizontal development of legacy Madison fields in North Dakota and Montana with direct offset horizontal analog wells

empire-louisiana

Empire Louisiana

  • Oil weighted production from legacy assets in Louisiana
  • Oil and gas production from mostly Miocene formations in St. Landry Parish. In Beauregard Parish production is derived from Frio, Cockfield and Wilcox formations.
  • 9 producing (100% operated) and 3 SWD wells
  • High working interest and operational control
  • Opportunity for shallow oil development of legacy Cockfield and Frio Sands in Beauregard Parish with direct offset horizontal analog wells
  • Strong PDNP development potential at St Landry Parish fields
  • Premium Louisiana light sweet oil pricing

empire-texas

Empire Texas

  • Concentrated acreage and stacked pay in the historically prolific East Texas Basin with 30,397 net acres held by production (HBP)
  • Field office in Madisonville, Texas holds an expansive library of regional geologic and geophysical data and analysis and proprietary 3-D seismic data that covers a majority of the acreage
  • Principal producing asset (~18,000 acres) is highly concentrated in the Fort Trinidad Field in Houston & Madison Counties, Texas with high working interest and historical production from over eight separate Cretaceous formations
  • Operations in the Ft. Trinidad Field include a 77-mile gas gathering system and SWD system
