DENVER -- Perhaps the most exciting, emerging play within the Permian basin of West Texas is the Wolfcamp shale. While there is a tendency to believe that such a play is the domain of large independents and majors, there is also ample room for medium-sized independents to exploit the formation. The personification of this may very well be Fort Worth, Texas-based Approach Resources Inc. The firm, said its president and CEO, Ross Craft, holds about 170,000 gross acres in the Midland basin of the greater Permian basin and is running three horizontal rigs, with plans to go to four rigs. Craft’s comments were made on Tuesday morning, during a URTeC panel group entitled, “Nimble Independents: Moving the Needle with Innovation and Execution Excellence.”
