Houston American Energy Updates Test Results from La. Well

Houston American Energy Corp. announced Friday that Pennington Oil & Gas, LLC, the operator of the Crown Paper #1 well in the Profit Island Field in East Baton Rouge Parish, Louisiana, has successfully carried out a recompletion of the Crown Paper #1 well. Houston American holds a 5.675 percent royalty interest in the well, which interest will be reduced to a 2.838 percent royalty interest after Houston American's receipt of royalties totaling approximately $225,000. Houston American also holds working interests and royalty interest in adjacent acreage to the Profit Island Field.

The Crown Paper #1 well came back on production following the recompletion April 25 and is currently producing in excess of 300 barrels of condensate and 900 mcf of gas per day.

John Terwilliger, Chief Executive Officer of Houston American Energy, stated, "While it is early in its production life for this new interval, I am very pleased with the initial production from the well. As a royalty owner, Houston American is not privy to all of the data on the well and can't speak as to the future cash flows that may be realized from the well. Nonetheless, I view the successful recompletion in the Tuscaloosa Sand as favorable to our Profit Island and North Profit Island Prospects. Houston American will continue to evaluate this area as well as pursue other domestic opportunities."
