Natural Gas Storage Field For Sale in Southwest Texas

Pecan Station was originally discovered in 1954 as an oilfield. Lone Star Gas Company purchased the property and its rights in 1963 . Lone Star converted it to a natural gas storage field . Atmos operated the field until 2006 at which time it was sold to Elco Oil and Gas for the sole purpose of oil production. GSEC purchased the Pecan Station (Canyon Line) Storage field in October 2008.

Plans to make the facility operational include re mediating and reworking the existing (16 ) wells . This meant plugging and abandoning some of the wells and drilling three new horizontal wells.

 The field is located in south‐central Tom Green county about 10 miles south of San Angelo, Texas.
 The field covers portions of Section 4,5,6,and 7 Block 25, H. & T. C. R. Survey for a total acreage of 2387.4

 Discovered in 1953
 The first oil well, J. W. Johnson #1 by C.L. MacMahon, Inc. in the Canyon Line horizon at a depth of 4,506
 Estimated flowing potential of 112.84 BOPD.
 The field was then developed on 40 acres drilling units with a total of 16 pumping wells .

The original operating permit was issued in 1964.In 2009 the original permit was amended to for the installation of the (6) proposed horizontal wells (4) proposed vertical wells and the remediation and plugging recommendations for the original (16) wells.The amended permit was approved and issued January 25, 2010.

In 2010 FCGS began the remediation process. When completed nine wells were plugged and
abandoned, four wells reworked to injection/withdraw capabilities, and three wells were
converted to monitor wells .

In 2011 the facility construction began, this included setting and installing all new and up‐todate
equipment and processes. New well lines were installed, compressor packages, process
equipment that includes equipment to meet current environmental regulations. This also
included a new 8” line form the Atmos connection into the facility.

In May of 2012 FCGS began injecting to date we have injected a total of 497,506 mcf.
In 2013 we had a reservoir engineering study done in to complete the proposed Horizontal
wells and provide an assessment of the facility.

The assessment indicated the following:
 The storage is tight acting as a sealed container with no gas leakage.
 Atmos had an inventory discrepancy causing an additional increase of 149 MMcf gains
that was previously unaccounted.
 The current storage capacity is as below :

 The producing zone in the Palo Pinto Lime of the Canyon formation which occurs at an
average depth of 4,500 feet.
 The formation is a fractured, lightly dolomitic, and vugular lime.
 The structure is an elongated anticlinal trap trending northwest‐southeast.
 The closure of the Canyon producing zone is traversed by a fault, the downthrown side
of which forms a synclinal basin which shows a slight southeastward tilting.
 Drilling history in this area gives evidence that a graben‐like basis existed along the
southwest flank of the anticline during the period of erosion following uplift.
