Totally committed to the Barnett Combo Project

First Independent to Hire 8 Top Barnett Shale Industry Professionals

Haas Engineering

Texas Standard Energy, and affiliates, are fully engaged with the firm. Haas serves in all engineering roles and overviews every phase from well maintenance to drilling and fracking. Beginning in 2004, the firm advised on lease location for acquisition as the Barnett expanded. All planning for drilling and completion begins and ends with Haas Engineering playing a vital role.

Why the Barnett Shale

industry advantage

The Barnett Combo has one of the lowest breakeven economics in the industry. The current economics only take into account the initial drilling program, which is only the beginning of the production life cycle of the Barnett Combo oil and gas wells. At some point in the years after the initial production from each well a re-frack program can be implemented to augment the production, which will significantly impact the economics in a positive manner. Texas Standard’s project manager has been re-fracking Barnett shale wells since 2015. As Devon’s completion engineer supervisor he has successfully re-fracked over 100 horizontal and 1,000 vertical wells. Most active operators in the Barnett have active re-frack programs. An existing wellbore that is fully equipped is a valuable asset that offers an economic opportunity to recover additional oil and gas in place without the cost of a new well. Some estimates suggest that for 1/3rd of the cost of a new well, 80% of recoverable reserves of a new well can be produced. Re-fracking will be in place in the Barnett Shale to add economic value to TSE’s Barnett Shale combo projects.

First independent to acquire seismic data, drill, frack, and deploy microseismic surveys to ascertain if the frack stayed in the zone. Also acquired full cores, side wall cores, and utilize full suite of BJ Hughes logs to produce six vertical wells in the Archer county Barnett Shale.

Texas Standard Energy has the highest regard for lowest cost efficiency. All the while, maintaining strict environmental behavior during every operational phase. The drilling rigs rated to drill a total well depth of 15,000 feet are top drives powered by electricity. In a normal operation, diesel powered generators create the electricity that drives hydraulic equipment which moves everything. The area of interest where TSE will drill is well served with rural electric power which, in most cases, will be used rather than the less desirable diesel generators, and with a cost savings. Texas Standard Energy will deliver it’s gas through company owned pipelines that connect to Targa’s gathering system. Targa’s grid of pipelines in the area are operated at low pressure and far below it’s volume capacity. Texas Standard has no need to flare natural gas due to owning our own gas gathering and delivering in to a system operating far below its rated capacity.

A message from our founder

“I don’t know of a single project being offered anywhere to anyone with *proven reserve designation……..generally, operators have geology that presents a good case for acquiring leases and drilling but, at best, that kind of acreage is no more than “prospective” and far removed from having proven designation.”
