Lighthouse Makes Bid for the Perry Leases in Texas
NEW YORK, Jan. 9, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- (OTC Pink: LHPT) Lighthouse Petroleum, Inc. is pleased to announce it has signed a Letter of Intent to acquire up to a total of 260 acres of mineral rights on wells and tracts of 2000 feet and below on the Perry and Perry A lease in Haskell County, Texas.
The Perry Lease sits on a multi-zone field discovered in 1955 by Phil Kendrick Sr. This area includes the following productive zones: Cook Sands, Hardy B Sands, Swastika, Cross-Cut, Patio A-D Sands, Palo Pinto, Caddo Reef, Mississippian, Ellenberger Limestone. This entire field is considered in-field drilling due to the close proximity of producing wells. These zones lay in a deltaic formation of layered sediments starting at depths of 1200' to 4500'.
Perry Ranch / Hendrick Ranch Lease
The Perry Ranch Lease is named for being the original lands owned by current Texas Governor Rick Perry's family. The Governor and his family are still the Royalty/Mineral owners of the lease.
Oil was first discovered here in the 1950s by Phil Kendrick Sr. who was looking for natural gas that would travel 30 miles to power pumps in the prolific Cook Ranch Field (produced over 2 million barrels of oil). He discovered gas and oil in the Cook and Hardy B Sands, but when he drilled deeper he logged 12 separate oil rich formations. Since that time Kendrick Oil has drilled over 80 wells in the area and currently produces from 6 of the 12 zones. Phil Kendrick Jr. used the success of the Perry Ranch to fund the start of Harken Oil Inc., which is famous for its partnership with the Bush family. President George W. Bush sold his stock in Phil Kendrick's Harken Oil to purchase the Texas Rangers. Phil Kendrick Jr. is now operating almost totally now in the Perry/Hendrick Ranch area and serves as a consultant for Home Creek Energy, and active participant in this project.
The current project of drilling horizontally in the Palo Pinto reserve has been done in the nearby Cook Ranch and Salt Creek fields with success.
