Pure & Simple

Operations Overview

Our core operating area is in the Permian Basin in West Texas, where we have a deep inventory of drilling locations targeting multiple zones and providing for successive years of production and reserve growth.

We’re applying advanced technologies, including pad drilling, horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing, and as a result, efficiencies are increasing. Bottom line, our drill time and costs are down, while production is increasing.

The average shale play formation is approximately 300 feet in thickness. In combination, the Wolfcamp A/B/C benches are approximately 1,000 to 1,200 feet in thickness. Our current focus is on the A, B and C benches using pad drilling and stacked wellbores.



Operating Strategically and Responsibly

We’ve approached this resource play strategically, and believe the benefits will be long-term:

  1. With multi-well pad drilling and stacked wellbores, we drill multiple wells from a single pad, target several zones and minimize our land use.
  2. We built a water infrastructure network and significantly reduced truckloads previously needed for water hauling.
  3. We are recycling the water we use. It’s environmentally responsible, and it’s helping us reduce our operating costs.
