Recovery Energy, Inc. (OTCBB: RECV), an independent oil and gas exploration and production company with operations and assets in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin, reported its financial results for the quarter ended March 31, 2011 and provided an operations update.
“At the outset of 2011 we began what we expect to be continuous drilling activities both in the vertical J sand and horizontal Niobrara. In the first quarter we drilled two Company-operated J sand wells, one non-operated J sand well and, in March, we began drilling our first horizontal Niobrara well,” said Roger A. Parker, Chairman and CEO of Recovery Energy. “We expect to begin completion operations on our first horizontal Niobrara well within the next week, and to have well results by the end of the quarter. Additionally, we are currently drilling our second horizontal Niobrara well. We have continued our geologic, geophysical and geochemical review which has identified numerous drilling locations in multiple horizons throughout the company’s 134,000 net acres. We are currently in the process of filing more than 25 additional well permits for the drilling of both vertical J sand and horizontal Niobrara wells.”
