MINNEAPOLIS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Avalon Oil & Gas, Inc. (Avalon) (OTCBB: AOGN) announced that the pipeline spur to the Waters #3-328, Lipscomb County, Texas, has been completed. This well produces from the Lower Morrow sand, a highly charged hydrocarbon reservoir with several producing gas wells in the immediate vicinity.
Amarillo Exploration, the operator of the Waters lease, completed a stimulation treatment on the Waters #3-328 on July 1, 2008. The fracture stimulation was successful. Initial tests indicate the well may produce up to 2,000 MCF per day. A sales agreement with DCP Midstream was reached to accommodate the full gas sales volume projected for the Waters lease. Based in Denver, Colorado, DCP Midstream is a 50-50 joint venture between Spectra Energy and Conoco Phillips.
"We are very encouraged by initial production results on the Waters #3-328 well and anticipate receiving our check before the end of this month," commented Avalon's President and CEO, Kent A. Rodriguez. He added "The Waters initial output was limited to 500 MCF per day due to pipeline constraints. With the DCP agreement, the Waters well can deliver its full production capacity of 2,000 MCF of gas per day."
Avalon acquired a 5% working interest, 3.75% net revenue interest in the 1,280 acre Waters prospect in December 2007. The Waters 3-328 well is positioned between two prolific gas wells and is projected to exceed 1.3 BCF of gas.
