HOUSTON, Aug. 26, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Hydrocarb Energy Corporation (OTCQB:HECC) disclosed that its Galveston Bay State Tract 247 well #198 has been completed at a rate of 1,000,000 cubic feet gas and 20 barrels oil per day, through a 16/64" choke, from the Frio 10 formation.
Chuck Dommer, President and COO stated, "We are very pleased with the results being achieved from our workover program. This well combined with the #181 well that we announced on August 23, 2015 adds over 185 barrels of oil equivalent per day."
The State Tract 247 well 198 well operated by Hydrocarb's subsidiary, Galveston Bay Energy (GBE), is a result of the company's extensive 2014-2015 rework and recompletion program. Additional wells, which are a result of this program are expected will be brought into production this month. Based on historical performance, bringing these wells online should result in notable additional production increases.
