The Tres Amigos Project consists of approximately 825 acres, targeting the Wolfberry Trend in both Dawson and Borden counties, Texas, with 11 possible drilling locations based on 80 acre spacing units. Cross Border will participate in the initial three wells on 1/3 for a 1/4 promoted basis with the remaining 8 wells to be drilled to each working interest partners' proportionate ownership. 

The targeted depth for each well is 10,825' focusing on the Wolfberry Trend which encompasses the Sprayberry/Dean, Wolfcamp, Canyon, Strawn, and Mississippian formation. Drilling of the initial well commenced on March 7, 2011 on the Shortes 6, #1 located in Sec 6, Blk 33, T3N of Borden County, Texas and has already reached a drilling depth of 3,242'.

"The Company is currently seeking additional opportunities within the Wolfberry Trend, and others that will complement its already existing Bone Spring and Yeso, Abo acreage,” E.W. Gray II, chairman and CEO, stated. “With a strong footprint in the two major emerging resource plays located within the Permian Basin, the Company is positioning itself to ultimately achieve the objective of becoming the recognized name of non-operated assets for the Bone Spring, Wolfberry and other Permian Basin targets."
