Plans also include the proposed development of the Company's South 40 Participation Agreement with its working interest partners, based on recommendations by independent Certified Geologists. Additionally, the Company also has future plans to drill up to three more wells on the South 40 location via its option rights Participation Agreement. The first objective is to drill the Ellenburger well on the South 40 and the geologically updip location. The Crawar Field on the J.B. Tubb Leasehold Estate also has multiple producing horizons and will be up for consideration. According to Geologists, the Ellenburger formation sits along a fault plane increasing viability below 6,200' and at approximately 8,300' -8,400' feet. The second and third target well locations are in the Waddel formation to 7,700-7,900' foot depth and the Wolfcamp formation at approximately 6,200' foot depth respectively, with an additional CAPEX requirement of approximately $2.6 million.
