TAP Management Austin TX Reviews Oil and Gas Prospects in South Texas


AUSTIN, TexasMarch 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- TAP Management Austin TX reviews various oil and gas prospects throughout the South-Central regions of Texas and is continuing to increase its position in the area.

In the exploration of hydrocarbons, the most common method of geophysical exploration is seismic reflection, which TAP has utilized to developed production in two states. This technique is similar to echolocation and sonar.

TAP Management Reports Planning of Fracture Stimulation for Horseshoe Gallup and Completion of Laramie Discharge System

TAP Management is currently in the process of planning a fracture stimulation treatment for a well drilled in the Horseshoe Gallup field in San Juan County, NM. The company is expected to commit to a plan and move forward with the treatment late in the first quarter of 2012.

The Horseshoe Gallup well was drilled to a total depth of just over 1900' with its main prospective pay zone as the Upper Gallup sandstone. The Upper Gallup was encountered as expected, but oil shows attributable to up-hole Mancos intervals were observed during drilling and warrant further investigation. Test results thus far have been largely inconclusive, and additional field development is currently pending post-analysis of the referenced fracture stimulation treatment.

TAP Management Seeks to Re-drill High Pressure Well

AUSTIN, Texas, June 23, 2011 /PRNewswire/ - During the drilling phase of a natural gas well by TAP Management, Inc. on June 9, 2011, it is believed an over-pressured zone was encountered before reaching the intended 5,800’ depth, causing the company to move locations and giving reason to believe a major shallow discovery may be imminent. A promising future drilling project 100 feet from the location, combined with an extra focus on drilling safety could result in a much higher prospective reward than originally anticipated. In-house petroleum engineer Jeff Welber says, “We are currently gathering information, searching for the source, and designing a well that will mitigate risk.”

Company History

TAP was formed in November 2005 by three partners to explore for shallow natural gas reserves in south Texas. After 18 months of fund raising and prospect evaluation, we commenced the drilling of our first well, the North Loeher Ranch #1, a 3200’ test well in Goliad County, TX. The results were positive, and led to a seven well field development. The Loeher #1 remains a tribute to hard work and perseverance, principles that continue to guide our company year after year.

TAP Management, Inc. (TAP) has been building a portfolio of oil and natural gas production since its founding in November of 2005.  It identifies specific targets in oil and gas fields that meet its risk/reward criteria.
