his boots muddy to succeed.
One of the reasons Murrell received the 2014 Boom Maker award is
because the Tennessee Division of Environment and Conservation
named Hornet Corporation's Donnie
Ray #1, the state's largest producing oil well for 2014.
"Alan's aggressive activity in the oil patch, his successful
wells in 2013 and 2014, particularly the Ray #1, the state's best
well in 2014, has created a drilling boom in north central
In accepting the award, Murrell credited his team for helping
win the award, "The 2014 Boom Maker trophy has my name on it
because there is not enough room to list my wife Kim, and all the

muddy right alongside me day and night." Murrell said.
"We are proud of our past success and we are already looking for
even bigger wells this year. We have some great prospects and
promise we will do everything in our power to be worthy of this
honor the Tennessee Oil & Gas Association has bestowed upon
us." He added.
