The Red Cave Formation


West Panhandle and Red Cave - Background

  • Panhandle Field was discovered in 1922 and more than 30,000 wells have been drilled since discovery
  • Most wells drilled to Brown Dolomite formation (below Red Cave), providing large amounts of Red Cave data
  • Red Cave is very shallow formation situated ~2,400 ft. vertically from surface
  • Red Cave was drilled from 1960-1990’s with relatively small fracs recovering only ~3-4%; significant recoverable oil remains
  • In 2014, area operators increased fracs from standard 50,000 lbs. to 250,000 lbs. increasing recoveries to ~6-8%
  • Red Cave is commercial at 5-acre spacing
  • Offset Operator, Adams Affiliates (Longboat Energy) has drilled 40+ wells with larger fracking techniques to greatsuccess proving the Red Cave formations potential.

West Panhandle and Red Cave - Background

  • West Panhandle is one of the largest producing oil & gas fields in continental U.S.
  • Field is well understood with tremendous well control
  • More than 30,0000 wells drilled to date & counting

Red Cave’s shallower depth contributes to lower per-well drilling costs
