FRISCO, TX--(Marketwire - Feb 25, 2013) - West Texas Resources, Inc. (OTCQB: WTXR), a Texas-based independent oil and gas company, today announced an update on its oil and gas prospect in Eastland County, Texas.
The Company owns a 31.25% working interest in an exploratory oil and gas drilling prospect covering 120 acres in Eastland County, Texas. The Eastland County prospect includes two exploratory wells, known as Rutherford #1 and C.M. Knott #1, both of which had been operating at a minimum level required to maintain the lease rights. The operator re-entered the Rutherford #1 well and conducted drilling and casing activities. Subsequently, GasFrac, Inc., of Kilgore, Texas, conducted the fracture stimulation of the Rutherford #1. After running off the liquefied gas used to conduct the fracture stimulation and an evaluation by the operator, the Rutherford #1 was placed on a pump on February 15, 2013 and has commenced production of oil and natural gas. To date, the Rutherford #1 has initial production of approximately 9 BBLS of oil and 28 MCF of natural gas per day.
According to Stephen Jones, CEO of West Texas Resources, "We are pleased with the initial production to date. Although the initial results are not sufficient to form a long-term view on the expected production, it appears that the Rutherford #1 will be a profitable well for our company."
