$30 oil?  Texas says bring it on

By Ben Karkela || Energy Media Group



Some parts of the Eagle Ford and Permian Basin are profitable with oil below $30 a barrel, according to analysis by Bloomberg Intelligence.

Wells in DeWitt County can be profitable with benchmark crude at a price as low as $22.52, which is $4 below its lowest price this year.  Crude oil settled at $26.55 on Jan. 20, its weakest price since May 2003.

The reports show seven Texas counties that can break even with oil at or below $30 per barrel: Martin, Midland, Howard, Reeves, Loving, Ward and DeWitt.

Wells that have already been drilled, but not yet hydraulically fractured, can be profitable at even lower prices.  Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is the last step before production begins.  In Reeves County, fracking an already-drilled well can be profitable with oil prices hovering near $14 a barrel.

But not all producers can weather the storm.

Miss Tanji - scroll up just a little and you will see an advertisement for B E & C. Click on it and you will find Wade Caldwell's phone number.

I was contacted by landman last week about lease negotiations with Apache. So, just out of curiosity, I googled this landman's name. And it turns out that several years ago he, when he was a Head Landman for a different company, he was convicted of embezzlement. Which spooked me a bit. 

Feeling sort of wary about the situation, I would really like to get into contact with Wade Caldwell. Does anyone know the best way for me to contact him?

I should have added that the yellow areas were Concho's before the trade. The green areas are new Concho areas as a result of the trade with CWEI. If you go to the actual report, linked by Buzz a couple of pages back, you will see that many areas that Concho held before the trade are no longer theirs. IOW, lots of yellow is gone from the Concho maps in exchange for the green. All that acreage must be CWEI's now.

Comment by Liz M. on January 28, 2016 at 1:55pm

Thomas, as far as we know we are still with CWEI. Buzz was kind enough to post a link to a couple of Concho maps that show where the trades were. I pasted the Concho maps over GIS maps - as best as I could, considering the Concho maps were a different scale and pretty crude. I do not guarantee the results, especially towards the edges of the maps, which seem to get more distorted. But many pieces seem to fit pretty well. Anyway, here are the links to the maps. They are also available a page or two back in this thread. We do not show as traded, not surprising because we were never held by Chesapeake.

Thomas, the drilling permit was issued to Cimarex on 6/28/2014. I could not find any information about a well being spud on DrillingInfo.

The two wells that you are seeing appear to have been drilled in 1953, and the last production was on 4/1/2001. They were being operated by Licon Oil Co. Cumulative oil production was 49,960 bbls. If you have any other questions, feel free to send me a message.
