FX Energy Moving Ahead with Fences Project in Poland
FX Energy, Inc. says that the Lugi-1 well in the Company's Fences I project area has casing set and cemented through the Zechstein section and coring operations to test a planned Rotliegend sandstone target reservoir will commence in about one week once preparatory operations are complete.
The Sroda-5 well drilling in the Company's Fences II project area has casing set to the top of the Zechstein section. The Zechstein will be drilled, cased and cemented before coring of the Rotliegend sandstone target reservoir will begin. The Zechstein is projected to be approximately 610 meters (2,000 feet) thick in the Sroda-5 well.
The Polish Oil and Gas Company is the operator of the Lugi-1 and Sroda-5 wells and owns 51%. FX Energy owns a 49% interest.
The Company also reported that a drilling contract will be signed for the Drozdowice-1 well in the Company's Fences III project area in approximately two weeks. Road building and site preparation will be done during December and drilling operations are planned to begin during January 2006. The Drozdowice-1 well is the Company's first well in the Fences III project area where FX Energy holds a 100% interest and is the operator.
FX Energy, Inc. is a technology-driven E&P company, with a large land position, very large low-cost reserve potential, an active drilling program and financial strength to fund current exploration. The Company holds exploration rights to over 1.7 million acres in western Poland's Permian Basin. The Permian Basin's gas-bearing Rotliegend sandstone is a direct analog to the Southern Gas Basin offshore England, and represents a largely untapped source of potentially significant gas reserves. FX Energy is exploiting this untapped potential in the belief that it can create substantial growth in oil and gas reserves and cash flows for its stockholders. The Company trades on the Nasdaq National Market under the symbol FXEN.
