The company is conducting geological and economic assessment of these leases to identify further high-value drilling opportunities. As per the company’s announcement, the leases are surrounded by developed oilfields, which have long life production, indicating strong well economics for the potential future wells within Eon’s leases.
Some of the PRB leases that were acquired in Natrona County are close to the prolific Teapot Dome and Salt Creek Oil Fields, which have been produced from the multiple formations over a long period of time and are still in production. The company believes that the contiguous nature of these southern leases will allow for broad-scale development if prospective oil resources are identified.
