Currently, the Company is operating 37 drilling rigs; 7 of these rigs are drilling Yeso wells on the New Mexico Shelf, 19 are drilling in the Texas Permian, 10 are drilling in the Delaware Basin and 1 rig is drilling Lower Abo wells in the New Mexico Shelf. Included in the 37 operated rigs, the Company is currently running 15 horizontal drilling rigs, including 10 in the Delaware Basin, 1 in the Texas Permian and 4 on the New Mexico Shelf.
