Expert Comments:

"Torchlight Energy Resources Inc. . .is very optimistic. It drilled its first well on the Orogrande, but instead of going to full production, it is collecting data. This is a large prospect, 180,000 acres. Last week Torchlight announced a definitive agreement with Founders Oil and Gas LLC. Founders will provide $5M in project reimbursement costs and an additional $45M in development capital in exchange for a 50% working interest in the project. Founders will also become the operator of record." read more >

"I have an interest in Torchlight Energy Resources Inc. It's a smaller, newer company, and it is going to drill wells in the Orogrande Basin project in Hudspeth County, West Texas. I originated some of the geological work and ideas there, and the Orogrande compares well to the Wolfbone, with the same rocks that were productive in the Wolfbone. We are using the same application of logic and parameters of evaluation as in the other basins. This was the third Permian Basin in West Texas. . .I'll have the luxury of doing all the science for the Orogrande. It's a geologist's dream to go into a new basin and try to find oil and gas. We'll give it the very best evaluation and shot at production as possible. The company is taking a geographically wild—but geologically not so wild—idea and performing the scientific methodology and completions used to the east, in the Delaware and Midland basins. Once you've reduced the risk as much as you can, all that's left to do is to drill it and find out. The risk/reward is huge, with a great potential for reward." read more >

"When I write about an energy stock, it's because I know the management. I met the people at Torchlight Energy Resources Inc. when I was out in L.A. at a conference a few months ago. They're raising money, and the company is going to have a lot of money when the cost of projects and the cost of drilling comes down. Torchlight is drilling in Texas, Kansas and Oklahoma. . .I'd like to see Torchlight increase its acreage and do drilling. It's a very favorable time because things have slowed in the patch." read more >
