Aurora Oil & Gas Limited (AEF.TO) confirmed it is "highly encouraged" by the results to date of a downspacing pilot program within its non-operated Sugarkane Field acreage in the Eagle Ford. The results are based on 13 wells on which there has been more than 6 months production and other more recently drilled wells, all of which have been drilled at less than 80 acre (660 ft) spacing.


- Aurora believes early results support downspacing from 80 acre case

- Preliminary results based on the initial 13 pilot wells, plus more recently drilled wells, tested at less than 80 acre spacing

- The initial 13 wells show statistically comparable performance to 80 acre type curves

- 70 wells across Sugarkane now drilled at less than 80 acre spacing

- Program extended to include Austin Chalk horizon

- Additional production history desired prior to determining basis for development spacing across non operated Sugarkane acreage

- Aurora planning 40 acre spacing on wholly-owned operated acreage

- Aurora to provide further guidance on results in H2 2013
