Aztec Oil & Gas Announces Participation in Barnett Shale
Aztec Oil & Gas, Inc., announced today that it has taken a minority participation working interest in the McCoy No. 2 well in the Barnett Shale play, north of Fort Worth, Texas. This well is the first in a planned program to exploit oil and gas reserves from leasehold interests held in the Barnett Shale play located in Cooke, Wise and Montague Counties, Texas.
The Barnett Shale is the largest natural gas play in Texas. It is presently producing 900 MMCF of gas per day and is considered one of the largest U.S. domestic natural gas plays with sizable, remaining resource potential. The first Barnett Shale wells were drilled and completed in the early 1980s by Mitchell Energy of Houston, Texas.
