Quicksilver Resources Announces Closing Of Sand Wash Basin Acquisition And Exploration Agreement

Operations Update

Horn River Basin

The company's Horn River Basin Asset began ramping-up production in mid-December 2012 to 100 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) of raw natural gas, which is being sourced from nine wells. Four wells have been producing for over 18 months, and five wells are being brought online in stages since the d-50 pad was completed in the third quarter of 2012. Net sales volume after treating is expected to be approximately 80 MMcfd at gross production of 100 MMcfd.

Sand Wash Basin

In the Sand Wash Basin, Quicksilver completed its most recent vertical well with initial production of 400 barrels of oil equivalent per day (Boed), which was partially restricted due to surface facility limitations. The well averaged 210 Boed – of which 70% is oil – for the first 30 days of production. With this well, the company has now found oil-productive Niobrara across a distance of 35 miles in an east-to-west band on its leasehold in Moffat and Routt counties.

West Texas

Quicksilver recently completed a second well in its West Texas Project in Upton County. The well is currently flowing back its load water from the 2,400-foot horizontal well bore which targeted the Wolfcamp formation, but has shown oil production while in flowback. The Price Ranch #1 well, Quicksilver's first short lateral well drilled in Pecos County, has averaged 120 Boed over its first 100 days of production from the Bone Springs formation.
