  • Hathaway drilled one Chanac horizontal well in 2013 as an infill between abandoned producers. The well has the potential for a significant amount of production; however, the property needs added water recycling capacity and is currently shut-in. Water produced from this lease is fresh and permitted¬†for use in agricultural operations.
  • Proposed development program includes seven additional horizontal wells.
  • First commercial production in 1912, the field produces from the Etchegoin & Chanac Formations.
  • Hathaway acquired a 200 acre lease in 2009 in the northwest corner of the field. Began development in 2009 with two vertical Chanac producers (1st development since mid-1970s).
