Breitling Oil and Gas reported that the Breitling-Magnolia #1 in Pottawatomie County, Oklahoma, is being completed as a possible oil and gas producer after reaching a total vertical depth of 4,500 feet. 

From log analysis, the well encountered several potentially productive zones over a gross interval in the Earlsboro Sand formation from 3626 feet to 3648 feet; the Woodford Shale from 3972 feet to 4130 feet; the Hunton from 4130 feet to 4165 feet; the Simpson from 4344 feet to 4356 feet; and the Wilcox from 4394 feet to 4408 feet. Testing and completion plans were finalized March 20 and a completion rig and crew moved into location on March 22, 2011. 

Chris Faulkner, CEO of Breitling Oil and Gas, said, "We encountered five possible pay zones on the way down each with good-looking mud log shows." Faulkner added, "We have 158 feet of good-looking Woodford Shale that we are analyzing as a possible horizontal play here as well." 

Breitling ran a density-neutron log, microlog and an induction log and decided to run pipe based in analysis by Breitling's engineers and geologists as well as Weatherford Laboratories analysis of the Magnolia #1 logs. Joe Simo, Chief Geologist for Breitling Oil and Gas, said, "These zones had good-looking porosity and we had some big gas kicks and sample shows with odor, stain and cut."
