This project is comprised of 10 wells targeting the Second Bone Spring that directly offset Phase I to the southeast. Despite geologic mapping indicating a thinning of pay to the east of Phase I, Devon expects Phase II to be “more special” and “more prolific.” For reference, Phase I consisted of 10 wells averaging...

PS - Lilis Energy Highlight - February 5, 2020
Lilis Energy brought in a new operational team to work on its northern Delaware Basin assets in 2H19. The result has been very meaningful efficiency improvements. In Q3, average drilling days (spud to TD) for longer laterals was reduced to 17 days from 45. Drilling cycle times were cut by “incorporating oilbased drilling mud, utilizing a higherquality rig and better downhole tools and configuration,” interim CEO Joseph Daches said. Recently, Verde Partners made a non-binding offer to acquire...

The 12 wells that have been placed online since December 2017 were completed using optimized completion design and are outperforming 33 previous Wolfcamp D wells by 100% after less than 180 days online. The company plans to continue to limit this appraisal program in 2020 as it takes time to understand the decline curve, determine optimal spacing and find ways...
