Petrolia Scoops Up Gaspesia Permits

Pétrolia announced it just obtained from the Ministry of Natural Resources and Wildlife two new drilling permits in Gaspesia. The two wells target conventional prospects of the Bourque reef complex, which is located between the towns of Murdochville and Grande Vallée.

Well Bourque 1, which will reach the depth or 10,499 feet (3,200 meters), will penetrate the reef structure in order to verify its oil potential. On the other hand, well Bourque 2, located 1.2 miles (2 kilometers) from the previous well, will reach a depth of 9,350 feet (2,850 meters) and aims to evaluate the oil potential of a Pinnacle type target. Both targets have been located on the basis of a 3D seismic survey.
