Apache Corp. has scouted out Alpine High, a region in West Texas where it discovered a large bounty of oil last year, and found thousands more drilling locations.

 

The Houston oil producer said it has boosted the number of potential drilling spots in the area from between 2,000 and 3,000 up to 5,000.

 

More than half of those spots, around 3,500, are in a so-called wet gas window, with 1,000 in a dry gas region and another 500 in the oil-rich Wolfcamp and Bone Springs play.

 

"Each of these plays is highly economic at current commodity prices," Apache CEO John Christmann said in a statement.
