Liberty Energy has said that the two shut-in wells, the #1 & #3 located on the Alexander B lease, have recovered a total of 215bbls of oil during the first 36 hours of production in the US.

The Lockhart Northeast poject in Caldwell County, US, consists of four land tracts containing eight wells (five re-entry wells and three shut-in wells) over two leases.

The lease is located over roughly 848 acres and if proven viable holds enough space to house a potential further 282 new wells.

The company initially announced a multi-phased well re-entry program in September 2010.

The first phase of the five-stage work-over has included re-entering three wells and the drilling out of one well on the lease.

The four wells in question are located on three tracts of land know as the Alexander A, housing 1 re-entry well called the #2, the Alexander B, housing tw shut-in wells called the #1 & #3 and the Anton, housing one shut in well called the Anton #1.

The company plans to commence phase-2 in January 2011.
