Target's Fairway Project in the highly sought-after Permian Basin in West Texas consists of approximately 2,080 gross acres, held by production (net 1,011 acres to Target) and up to 884 acres (net 476 acres to Target) in undeveloped leases, with the Company holding working interests ranging from 33.75% to 60% (average 50.2%).

The operator is Trilogy Operating, Inc. out of Midland, Texas, a company with a long history of drilling successful wells in the Permian Basin.

A map of Target's Fairway Project in the Midland Basin is shown below:


Since its entry into Fairway in late 2011, the company has enhanced the value of the project by pursuing an organic growth strategy which has:

  • Drilled 15 producing wells
  • Resulted in approximately two thirds of the Fairway leases being held by production
  • Increased production and cash flows
  • Added 2P reserves of 1.0mmboe net to Target.

However, in today's commodity price environment with oil prices having dropped dramatically, Target is suspending its drilling program pending a price recovery.
