Moss Creek Resources Holdings, a wholly owned subsidiary of Surge Energy, announced the drilling of the longest known lateral in the Permian Basin.
The Medusa Unit C 28-09 3AH was successfully drilled to a total-measured depth of 24,592 ft (total vertical depth of 7,102 ft). This record breaking well was drilled 100% in zone of the Wolfcamp A with a total horizontal displacement of 17,935 ft (or 3.4 miles). This is the longest known lateral in the Permian Basin based on the IHS Markit and Drillinginfo databases.
This was executed in 18 days from surface to total depth utilizing conventional mud motor and measurement-while-drilling (MWD) technology. Surge Energy partnered with Latshaw Drilling & Exploration’s Rig 10 and Pro Directional for directional services.
The well is expected to be completed and brought online later in the year.
“This industry milestone in the Permian Basin is our latest example of the innovation and technical expertise being executed by the Surge Energy Team” Dexter Burleigh, President and CEO of Surge Energy, said. “We are extremely proud of our drilling team for this significant achievement.”
