SAN ANTONIO, March 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Lilis Energy, Inc. (NYSE American: LLEX), an exploration and development company operating in the Permian Basin of West Texas and Southeastern New Mexico, announced today its third party operated midstream system has commenced operations. In addition, the Company announced that its current production is in excess of 5,000 Boepd (75% liquids) and growing as the midstream system reaches maximum efficiency and additional wells currently in flowback and completion stage achieve peak production.
"Completing the implementation of our new midstream system operations and reaching our 5,000 net Boepd target are key milestones for the Company. These achievements exemplify the quality and dedication of our team. The implementation of our new midstream solution provides full take away capabilities to meet our current and future natural gas transportation needs across our properties while eliminating recent production curtailment constraints. In addition, we expect production to continue increasing in the near term once our midstream system reaches full operational efficiency and with the addition of new production from wells currently flowing back and undergoing completions," said Ron Ormand, Lilis' Executive Chairman.
"The Company remains focused in 2018 on delineation and de-risking of our acreage both geologically and geographically. We are currently in the process of flowing back and completing seven wells, including two Wolfcamp B wells in the eastern portion of our acreage, one Wolfcamp A and one Wolfcamp XY in our New Mexico acreage, a Wolfcamp XY well in Texas and two Wolfcamp B wells in the western portion of our Texas acreage. We expect to begin completing a well in the Bone Springs and an additional Wolfcamp B well in the western portion of Texas acreage by the end of the month. These wells will add to our production volumes and cash flow as well as provide important delineation benchmarks for the Company. Based on our operational capabilities, increasing production, and backlog of drilling and completion activities, we are very confident in our ability to reach our targeted 7,500 net Boepd exit rate for 2018," Mr. Ormand concluded.
Note: Production exceeded 5,000 boepd on March 24, 2018
