"We're pleased to have this opportunity to increase our interest in the Permian Basin's unconventional Wolfberry Trend," said Chairman and CEO E. Will Gray II. "We believe the Wolfberry has great promise and our initial results in the nearby Tres Amigos project, also targeting the Wolfberry, have been encouraging."
Cross Border has acquired a 10% WI in 320 gross acres in Dawson County, Texas, with expectations to acquire an additional 480 gross acres, within the Six Shooter project, sometime later this year. The Company will participate in the first well, scheduled to spud this month on a 1/3 for a 1/4 promoted basis. The entire Big Star Six Shooter project covers approximately 800 acres in the Wolfberry, located along the eastern shelf of the Midland Basin. The trend encompasses the Sprayberry/Dean, Wolfcamp, Canyon, Strawn, and Mississippian formations.
