Oracle Energy Corp.: Arrone-1 Well Update
|Oracle Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:OCL)(PINK SHEETS:OECPF)(FRANKFURT:O2E) ("Oracle") announces that it has been notified by Ascent Resources plc (UK) it has completed drilling the Arrone-1 well in the Fiume Arrone Exploration Permit to the west of Rome. |
The Arrone-1 well has been drilled to a total depth of 894 metres. It penetrated the prognosed Base Pliocene Unconformity at about 820 metres and continued to drill the Miocene section. Despite strong gas shows during drilling that necessitated a 20% increase in drilling mud weight, the logs showed that the Pliocene section had only thin, low porosity sand units that would not be capable of commercial production at this location. The partners in the project: Oracle Energy (20%), Italmin Exploration (14%), JKX Italia (10%) and Ascent Resources Italia (56% and operator; a wholly owned subsidiary of Ascent) have therefore agreed to plug and abandon the well.
Oracle Energy Corp is an international company engaged in the development and exploration of oil and gas. The Company also has an 18.75% interest in 640 acres in Zapata County, Texas, a 20% interest in six previously producing oil and gas concessions in Romania and a 15% interest in the Evaluation and Promotional Agreement for Area XIII, Peru. New project acquisitions are actively being negotiated on.
