Gulf Coast Western, LLC and its operating partner, Alpine Exploration Companies Inc., both based in Dallas, have completed and placed into production three wells in the Orange Dome Field, an oil field in Southeast Texas neighboring the famed Spindletop Field. Gulf Coast Western explores, develops and acquires domestic oil and gas reserves primarily in the Gulf Coast region of the United States.
The wells in the Orange Dome Field are currently producing at or near expected levels and have been determined to have very good reserve potential. In addition to these initial wells, Gulf Coast Western expects to continue further development on acreage it has under lease in the area. Gulf Coast Western began its drilling program in the Orange Dome Field in 2012.
