EOG Resources has identified “sweet spots” in the play, including the Silo Field, and has drilled 4 additional horizontal Niobrara Shale wells since then:
Elmer 8-31H - 730 barrels of oil per day
Red Poll 10-16H - 1,100 barrels of oil per day
Critter Creek 2-03H - Waiting on Completion

EOG Resources plans to run 2 rigs in the Niobrara Shale in 2010, and has estimated completed well costs at $3.4 million.
