That strategy has worked well, Cramer noted, as Carrizo has now overcome its funding gap and can now fund operations through 2014. Johnson cited the Niobara shale field in Colorado as one of Carrizo's many untapped assets. He said the region is just getting started but so far has been very profitable. Meanwhile, his company has been selling some of its Barnett shale assets as those wells have been primarily producing dry gas, which is not Carrizo's strong suit. When asked about the possibility of being acquired, Johnson said that every small producer is being studied by larger companies, but he remains focused on growing and establishing his company's acreage and is not pay attention to possible acquisitions. Cramer said Carrizo remains a great growth story and he remains a believer in the stock.
