“DXI is pleased to report that the Excalibur #10 rig has spud the first well of the 2018 exploration program at the Company’s 13,000 acre leasehold at Woodrush N.E.B.C. Ongoing directional drilling, casing and logging of this new well, known as B-100 is scheduled to be completed next week with results released shortly thereafter. After 10 months of project analysis and planning, we are driven by our final pre-stack, depth migrated 3D seismic data interpretation as it has identified the optimal bottom hole locations of multiple high impact drill targets on DXI leaseholds. Based upon the initial results, DXI and its partners will expand production with additional wells to test all indicated Halfway reservoirs, maximizing both netbacks and the internal rate of return available, utilizing current delivery infrastructure,” states Robert L.

Woodrush Project: Legacy Operations
On a historical basis, initial oil pool discoveries were drilled at the Woodrush in 2008 and 2010, each commencing production at rates of approximately greater than 500 BOPD of light 42′ gravity crude and have produced over 675,000 barrels of oil since discovery and were still producing at a daily combined rate of 300 BOED through Q2 2017. The current production infrastructure, consisting of tanks, separators, line heaters, compressors, pumps, water injection facilities and pipe-lines has a production capacity of approximately 2,000 Barrels of oil and up to 3 MMCF of gas per day. New discoveries in this location will utilize this existing in-place infrastructure and transportation system to market new production in the most cost effective manner.
