Treadstone Energy Partners II Announces Austin Chalk Results


Treadstone Energy Partners II, LLC (Treadstone II or the company), an exploration and production company currently operating in East Texas, announced today the results of the companys Austin Chalk wells in Milam County, Texas. Treadstone II drilled and completed the companys first Austin Chalk well in July 2017 (Ely 2-3HA), with an IP24 rate of 880 boepd (91% oil) and first year cumulative production of 140 mboe. Subsequent wells drilled in 2018 have outperformed the Ely 2-3HA, said Frank McCorkle, Chief Executive Officer of Treadstone II. The Holden Moore 3HA, completed in August 2018, had an IP24 rate of 2,800 boepd (91% oil) and 120-day cumulative production of 280 mboe.

We are very pleased and excited with the performance of our initial Austin Chalk wells. We are continuing to evolve our drilling and completions practices to increase value and return on investment. While the Austin Chalk has been our primary focus to date, the Eagle Ford and Buda formations hold significant value over our acreage position, said Frank McCorkle. With recent success, Treadstone II picked up a second rig in December 2018 to increase development pace. The companys first Eagle Ford well (Remi Rose 1HE) reached TD (total depth) in December and is expected to be on production in late January 2019.
