Terry Swift, CEO of Swift Energy commented, “We are extremely pleased with our drilling and completion efforts in our Eagle Ford acreage. Our recent PCQ and Fasken well results demonstrate the multiple benefits from our technical improvements. We’re drilling smart, cost effective wells in a top tier manner. In our Fasken development project announced a month ago, we and our partner plan to take the steps necessary to increase the value of this premier Eagle Ford asset. Our last 8 Fasken wells (2 in late 2013 and 6 so far in 2014) have all been high rate wells with average initial production tests in excess of 20 MMcf/d. By early next year, we expect to have our Fasken firm pipeline capacity increase from 75 MMcfpd to 160 MMcfpd. Successful execution of this disciplined plan should place Swift Energy firmly among the top 20 Texas natural gas producers in 2015.”
