Cunningham’s WV Lions Paw Pad Roars, Produces 100K Bbl of Oil

The Big Injun is back in the news. In 2015 Cunningham Energy, a small oil driller based in West Virginia, struck oil in the Big Injun sandstone formation in Clay County, WV (see Cunningham Strikes Oil in West Virginia’s Big Injun Territory). In 2017 the company reported producing 20,000 barrels of oil from two new shallow horizontal oil wells located in Clay County, targeting the Big Injun (see Cunningham Energy Strikes More Oil in WV). Cunningham drilled two more wells on the same pad, the Lions Paw pad, and as of this week that 4-well pad has surpassed producing a total of 100,000 barrels of oil and 91 million cubic feet (MMcf) of “wet” natural gas.
