IRVING, Texas, April 26, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Breitling Oil and Gas today announced that the Breitling-Yardeka #1, the first well in its new Arkoma Basin gas field in McIntosh County, Oklahoma, is being completed as a possible natural gas producer after reaching a total vertical depth of 3,500 feet.
From log analysis, the well encountered several potentially productive zones over a gross interval in the Jefferson Sand from 3380 feet to 3390 feet; the Upper Gilcrease Sand from 2246 feet to 2378 feet; the Lower Gilcrease Sand from 2868 feet to 2870 feet; and the Cromwell Sand from 3227 feet to 3236 feet. Testing and completion plans were finalized April 21 and a completion rig and crew moved into location April 25. Natural gas pipeline tie-in is slated for the week of May 16.
Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Oil and Gas, said, "We are excited about developing this shallow gas field." Faulkner added, "We have good serendipity even though we are only drilling to 3500 feet."
Breitling ran a density-neutron log, microlog and an induction log and decided to run pipe based in analysis by Breitling's engineers and geologists. Joe Simo, Chief Geologist for Breitling Oil and Gas, said, "We had good gas shows on the way down and from the logs we have some good-looking formations in this well and hopefully throughout the field."
