Victory Energy Corporation announced drilling has progressed into the deep Strawn Limestone formation to approximately 11,500 feet on deep well 154-6. This well is one of two deep Strawn Limestone wells located in the Corporation’s Crockett County gas play in the Texas Permian Basin.
Victory’s drilling contractor reports that well 154-6 has a very strong showing of natural gas at this level, exceeding expectations. Drilling will continue to approximately 12,000 total depth or when reaching the bottom of the Strawn formation.
The second deep well, V-127, has reached a depth of 10,000. Drilling will continue when the rig from 154-6 is moved onto this well to complete drilling through the Strawn Limestone formation.
“We are moving slowly and cautiously through the Strawn Limestone formation to ensure steady progress consistent with good drilling practices,” commented Jon Fullenkamp, President of Victory Energy Corporation.
Of Victory’s remaining wells, eight gas wells are producing in accordance with historical information for this field. Two additional Canyon Sandstone wells have been stimulated and are in the process of flowing back the stimulation fluid prior to production. The most recent is Canyon Sandstone well in the initial drilling stages. All wells are located within the Texas Permian Basin.
