Talisman, Statoil Buy Texas Shale in $1.3 Billion Joint Venture Deal
Talisman estimated that the property contains the equivalent of 800 million barrels of oil. The property currently produces the equivalent of 5,500 barrels of oil per day, Talisman said. It said six wells are producing energy, and 20 more will have been drilled by year's end. Shale oil and gas deposits have become a key source of U.S. energy production. New techniques make it easier to reach oil and gas trapped beneath layers of rock deep underground. Both Talisman and Statoil have been expanding their shale gas operations in North America.
