Pat O'Brien, Chairman and CEO of American, stated, "Our goal of creating a commercially viable developmental drilling program at Fetter remains on track. Results to date from our Niobrara re-completions give us added confidence that by combining production from the Frontier and Niobrara formations in vertically drilled wells, in addition to the potential for horizontal wells, we can establish a large multi-year development program in the field. We will now allow the wells to produce from the Niobrara formation while we plan additional field activity."
