The acquired 3,200 net acres of leasehold in Gonzales County is adjacent to our development area and is estimated to contain approximately 20 horizontal well locations, excluding any down spaced drilling opportunities. The acquired 895 net acres of leasehold in Lavaca County is complementary to existing leasehold in nine units, with an estimated addition of approximately 10 horizontal well locations.
