"We are very excited about the test results of our first three Warrior South wells," commented Tom StableyRex Energy's Chief Executive Officer. "We believe our test results, combined with other reported industry results, demonstrate the opportunity for superior well performance in this region. These results and our 2013 development plans will help us to demonstrate the potential value of our Warrior South position, where we have identified approximately 45 additional gross well locations."
The wells have been shut-in since completion and will be placed into sales once the related infrastructure is in place, which is currently expected to be inJune 2013Rex Energy plans to provide a 5-day and 30-day sales rate for the three wells as part of its second quarter 2013 earnings release. During the second and third quarter of 2013, the company plans to drill and complete 5 additional wells at its J. Anderson well pad with a proposed average lateral length per well of approximately 5,000 feet. The company currently holds approximately 6,700 gross acres within the Warrior South Prospect in its Joint Development Area with MFC Drilling, Inc. and ABARTA Oil and Gas Co., Inc.
