Houston, TX - August 19, 2019 - Houston American Energy Corp. (NYSE American: HUSA) today provided an update on operations on the Frost #1H well located in the Northwest Shelf of the Midland Basis, in Yoakum County, Texas.
The Frost #1H well was put on production as of June 8, 2019. The well began producing oil immediately and has been unloading frac fluid and formation water while continuing to produce oil. Over the first two months of operations, daily production from the well over the past 2 weeks has averaged 81 barrels of oil and 1,500 barrels of water. The well operator has advised that peak production is expected between 3 to 6 months following commencement of production. The operator has also advised that it is disposing of produced water at $0.40 per barrel, making the well economical at current production rates.
Based on the initial and anticipated ultimate results of the Frost #1H well, the operator and Houston American Energy have agreed to drill an additional 3 wells on the lease over the next 12 months. The first of these additional wells is expected to be drilled in the fourth quarter of 2019. Houston American Energy holds a 12.5% working interest (subject to a 10% back-in after payout) in the 650-acre prospect.
In addition, the operator is attempting to add to the existing lease position in the area.
