MIDLAND, TX--(Marketwired - June 16, 2014) - Arabella Exploration, Inc. (OTCQB: AXPLF) ("Arabella" or the "Company"), an oil and gas E&P company focused on the Southern Delaware portion of the Permian Basin, today announced that it has successfully brought its Emily Bell #1H well into production.
On May 11, 2014 the Company completed fracing the Emily Bell #1H and the well began flowing back on May 19, 2014. The well began initial production on June 2, 2014 and reached a peak initial production rate of over 1,100 BOE/Day. Since its peak production the well has averaged over 600 BOE/Day for the first twelve days without the assistance of any artificial lift and with only approximately 9% of the frac water load recovered. This is Arabella's seventh well and the first on its Emily Bell tract, where it holds an approximately 52% working interest.
"We are very pleased with the results from our Emily Bell #1H," stated Jason Hoisager, CEO of Arabella. "We believe that the initial and sustained production we are seeing is indicative if the type of results possible in the Wolfbone play. In addition to the financial returns that this new production will bring, we are pleased that this well is in line with our ongoing efforts to bring down drilling costs."
Arabella hired SDS Petroleum Consultants, L.L.C. (www.sdspetroleumconsultants.com) ("SDS"), an oilfield drilling consulting company, to assist with the drilling of the Emily Bell #1H and Woods #2H well with the goal of reducing costs and improving production results. After an average cost to drill of $4.4 million for each of the two wells -- as opposed to an average of $5.9 million for the Jackson #1H and Woods #1H prior to SDS being retained -- the Company believes that both the Emily Bell #1H and Woods #2H will be completed under AFE. As a result, Arabella has signed SDS to a contract to drill its future wells.
In addition, Arabella today announced that Chad D. Elliott has resigned from his position as Chief Operating Officer of the Company.
