Torchlight Set to Drill Test Well Near El Paso

In spite of plummeting oil prices, fracking may be coming soon next to El Paso in Hudspeth County. Torchlight Energy Resources is set to drill a test well on March 28th. They must commence drilling as a term of their lease with the University of Texas that owns the land. In time it could mean drilling 2500 fracking wells marring the sensitvie Diablo Plateau.
