Pat O'Brien, CEO of American commented, "The decision to suspend operations on the Hageman well was necessitated by continued delays and operational issues largely related to the drilling rig. We are in discussions with a drilling company in order to obtain a suitable rig to resume drilling activity at Fetter and are simultaneously investigating various techniques and technologies that will further our ability to unlock this potentially large resource."
At the Sims 16-26 well, a coiled tubing unit has successfully cleaned out the obstruction in the production tubing which has now been perforated across the Frontier formation. The well is currently undergoing a series of tests and pressure analyses. As reported earlier this month, the Sims well has produced nominal amounts of natural gas and condensate to date. We believe that perforating the production tubing may marginally improve the performance of this particular well.
At the approximate 7,600 gross acre Fort Fetterman prospect, which adjoins the Fetter acreage, the drilling rig and related equipment is arriving on location to commence drilling the Strock #1-20 well. This exploration well is targeting the Parkman formation at a depth of 7,800 feet. American will pay 37.5% of the costs to drill and complete this well and will own a 32.8125% working interest in this and any subsequent wells in this prospect.
