NEW ORLEANS, July 31, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Treaty Energy Corporation (OTCQB: TECO) (http://www.treatyenergy.com), a growth-oriented international energy company, today announced that it has recently been assigned a 38.5% net revenue interest (NRI) with a 50% working interest (W/I) on the existing Mitchell #1 well in Tuscola, Texas from U.S. Fuels of Breckenridge, Texas. The Company successfully completed a work over the same day in order to immediately increase the Company's production and revenue.
On July 28, 2013 the Company received notification that a work over rig had arrived to complete work on the long awaited Standard #2 well in Tuscola, Texas. After discussions with management, landowners and field operations, the decision was made to defer operations on the Standard lease temporarily to acquire a larger and more favorable working interest on the Mitchell #1 well.
The Mitchell #1 well, which is located 813' from the Mitchell #3, received an initial production rate of 160 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) and produced a small amount of gas. While the Company plans to reduce its reliance on marginal wells, the Mitchell #1 has been a consistent producer for over 15 years, making the well a worthwhile investment given the current production levels of the Mitchell #3 and #4. The company has provided the original completion report on its website, located at http://www.treatyenergy.com/sites/default/files/Mitchell1CompletionReport.pdf.
In line with internal policies, the Company will announce stable production rates one to two weeks after initial production surges have stabilized.
The fracking operation used 7000 PSI of sand with a 2% hydrochloric acid mixture. Video of the fracking operation may be found on the Company's website located at http://www.treatyenergy.com/media/mitchell-1-fracking-operation or on the Company's official YouTube page located at http://youtu.be/Dy48s7nBSIA.
This action was taken to increase revenues for the Company immediately and to gather more data about the area. The Company plans to revisit the Standard #2 well at a later date once it evaluates the production data retrieved from the work over of the Mitchell #1. The acquisition of the Mitchell #1 brings the total amount of wells that the Company has a working interest in to 3 producing wells on the Mitchell lease (#1, #3 and #4).
