Cunningham Energy LLC has announced plans for three additional new shallow horizontal oil wells to be drilled in Clay County, West Virginia. The newly planned horizontal program will be drilled from the ‘Dragon’s Breath’ pad, consisting of three wells surveyed with a specified measured depth (‘MD’) ranging from 4750′ to 5200′ plus feet and vertical depths (‘TVD’) of 2150′ plus feet.
All three ‘Dragon’s Breath’ horizontal wells are targeting oil in the Big Injun Sand formation in Union District of Clay County. Cunningham Energy also plans to utilize one of the company’s three Speedstar 185 top drive drilling rigs in conjunction with these new wells. Each well bore on the Dragons Breath Pad has been planned to be completed with multiple frac stages with varying spacing dependent on future wireline data.
