PLANO, TX / ACCESSWIRE / September 2, 2020 / Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. (NASDAQ:TRCH) ("Torchlight" or the "Company"), today reported that Orogrande operator, Maverick Operating, will move its team in for a gas lift installation within the next two weeks on the University Cactus A-35H well that was drilled and tested in early 2020. Early results, without gas lift, were impressive with 15 BOPD and 110 MCFPD from only a 100 foot frac interval. The intent of the gas lift approach is to remove the hydrostatic head from the wellbore and allow the oil and gas to come to surface more efficiently. Results will be reported when available.
"It's exciting to be active restarting operations on the Orogrande Project," stated John Brda CEO of Torchlight. "The stimulation on this well was executed flawlessly into the 100 foot interval of the Penn zone with great oil and gas shows. We believe that by installing and testing a gas lift system the flow back results will be optimized. This is another signifigant step for us in the project and we expect the exercise will help identify the best methodology for efficient flow back on subsequent wells."
