Bob Watson, President and CEO of Abraxas, commented, “Our significant reserve growth in the fourth quarter of 2017 drove a $40 million increase in our credit facility. This result further demonstrates the tremendous success our team has had in executing on our business plan. We would like to thank all the members of our bank group for their continued support of the Company. Our new $175 million borrowing base provides more than adequate liquidity for us to continue to execute on our business plan.”
