(3 injectors); and Terbrock (1 injector), and on February 21st, 2017 S&B, specialists in formulating and operating water-flood enhanced oil recovery programs, scheduled all of such work with applicable service providers. The work is expected to be completed by March 3rd, 2017, weather permitting. It is estimated the stimulation program will improve production from these particular leases by 20 to 25%.
