MIDLAND, Texas, Sept. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Mexco Energy Corporation (NYSE MKT: MXC) today announced developments regarding certain oil and gas properties in New Mexico and Texas.

Mexco Energy Corporation ("Mexco") has entered into an agreement with Concho Resources, Inc. (" Concho") to develop the Bone Spring formation using horizontal drilling and multi-stage fracture stimulation on acreage in southwestern Lea County, New Mexico.  The first two horizontal wells of twelve prospective wells will target the Avalon shale portion of the Bone Spring zone.  To date, 67 wells have been completed in the Avalon shale in this area with numerous other wells in the process of drilling or completing.  Concho will pay 62.5% of the cost to drill and complete the two initial wells in order to earn 50% working interest (37.5% net revenue interest).  The joint venture of which Mexco is a member will pay 37.5% of the cost to drill and complete two initial wells and will retain 50% working interest and 50% net revenue interest in the wellbores.  Mexco's working interest in this development is approximately 0.56% (0.42% net revenue interest).

Mexco is currently participating in other horizontal well developments on acreage in the Bone Springs formation of Lea County, New Mexico.  In June 2013, Cimarex Energy Co. ("Cimarex") announced plans to drill a third well on a 160 acre unit in this formation.  Mexco's working interest in the Cimarex prospect is .0469% (.0352% net revenue interest).  In August 2013, Concho began drilling a second well on a 640 acre unit.  Mexco's working interest in this Concho prospect is .1875% (.148% net revenue interest).  

Overall, Mexco has various interests in 18 horizontal wells and 138 vertical wells in Lea County, New Mexico.  Mexco's net revenue interests in these wells range from .00047% to 6.61%.  There is further potential for horizontal development on leasehold acreage on certain of the leases on which these wells are producing.       

Mexco also is participating in the continued development of two units containing approximately 1,000 acres in Winkler County, Texas.  The operator, OGX Operating, LLC, is currently drilling two horizontal wells in the Penn Detrital formation of the F A Hogg field.  Two other horizontal wells on this acreage are currently producing from this formation.  Mexco's working interest in all four wells is .4167% (.3125% net revenue interest).
