Negotiations with California Energy Company, Incorporated (CECI), which owns leases in the Newberry KGRA led to an agreement for a cost-shared exploratory drilling project on CECI'Slease. In return for the cost-share, Sandia was to receive testing, production and cost data from the slhnholes and from the production wells drilled nearby, giving a direct comparison of productivity predicted from tests on the slimholes and that achieved by the actual production wells. Since locations, depths and lithology are also similar, there would also be a close comparison of drilling costs.
