Torchlight Energy Resources, Inc. disclosed additional information on the company’s oil and gas exploration and development program in Texas.

Torchlight Energy Resources and its operating partner have spud the Johnson #4 well at the Marcelina Creek Field located in Wilson County, Texas. This is the second well in a four well program at the property. The Johnson #4 well is to be drilled to a vertical depth of 8,500 feet and is targeting the Buda formation on the property.
