SilverBow Resources Announces Strong Oro Grande Well Result


SilverBow Resources, Inc. (NYSE: SBOW) (“SilverBow” or “the Company”) today announced that the Company’s Oro Grande NMC 1-H well had cumulative production over 940 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent (“MMcfe”) after ninety producing days. The well is currently producing approximately 11 million cubic feet of natural gas equivalent per day (“Mmcfe/d”) with nearly 6,000 pounds per square inch (“psi”) of flowing tubing pressure under the Company’s detailed pressure management program. The well had a lateral length of 7,500 feet and utilized the Company’s largest completion design of roughly 3,400 pounds of proppant per lateral foot.

“Our use of modern seismic, geo-steering, and completion design are yielding a marked increase in our well performance as compared to the historical development in this area,” said Sean Woolverton, Chief Executive Office of SilverBow Resources. “The NMC 1-H is an important milestone and proof-of-concept well for the Company as we transfer our learnings from Fasken to other areas of the gas and condensate windows of the Eagle Ford. Furthermore, our strong results from Oro Grande have prompted us to move the rig back to the area to drill our second well sooner than what was originally scheduled. We are currently completing the NMC 2-H with plans to drill a third well in the area in early 2018.”
