Gallic has received approval on October 7, 2011 for its second and third permits or DOTs to re-enter wells on the Ger Permit, France from local and regional authorities. The first permit had been approved on August 31, 2011.
Mr. William H. Smith, President and CEO of Gallic, said "We are pleased that our operations team in Calgary and Pau, France has performed so professionally to promptly receive these approvals. Receipt of these approvals is confirmation that Gallic's targets are conventional reservoirs, naturally fractured carbonates and porous and permeable sandstones, that can be completed without the need for hydraulic fracture stimulation. Surface construction on the first well to be re-entered will commence shortly. Gallic anticipates that rig operations to re-enter two wells on the permit will commence in late Q4 2011 or early Q1 2012. Re-entry of the 2 wells will be done sequentially with one rig."
Gallic is well financed with $21 million cash on hand to meet its planned activities and to cover working capital.
