Oil & Gas Firm Makes Progress at Its Orogrande Basin Project


A ROTH Capital Partners report relayed what work has been recently completed.

Torchlight property

In an Aug. 16 research note, analyst John White with ROTH Capital Partners reported that Torchlight Energy Resources Inc. (TRCH:NASDAQ) gave a "positive" operational update on its Orogrande asset, whose large land package it is developing. "We are encouraged that Torchlight sees further potential and plans additional wells this year and into 2019," he wrote.

Torchlight has been tackling the problem of gas blocking the flow of oil out of its University Founders A25 1H well. To resolve it, the company had Maverick, the project operator, install a dual-lift gas system into the wellbore, which was done successfully. The system should help move fluids out of the wellbore's lateral part. "This will be tested over the next 60 days to determine what level of fluid recovery potential exists," noted White.

In other news, in accordance with its intent to drill two more wells in 2018 and three wells in 2019, Torchlight identified two locations for drilling, to test shallower vertical targets, White relayed. "These targets will fulfill drilling commitments required under agreement with University Lands and if proven up, could add substantial value to the project."

In the near term, initial work on the next Orogrande wells is scheduled to commence in October.

ROTH has a Buy rating and a $1.75 per share price target on Torchlight, whose stock is currently trading at around $1.12 per share.
