Corridor Releases Independent McCully Reserves Report
Corridor Resources reports that the independent reserves report for its year end, August 31, 2005, has now been completed and is available for review in Corridor's offices and on Corridor's website www.corridor.ns.ca. The report has been prepared by APA Petroleum Engineering Inc. and Petrel Robertson Consulting Ltd. in accordance with the requirements of National Instrument 51-101, and has an effective date of September 1, 2005.
The updated reserves report assigns current Proved Reserves of 17.2 billion standard cubic feet (Bscf) of natural gas for the field, of which Corridor's working interest share before royalty is 8.6 Bscf. Proved Reserves are limited to those for which there is an existing sales contract, in this case for local delivery to the potash mill owned and operated by Potash Corporation of Saskatchewan Inc. (PCS). The report estimates Proved Plus Probable Reserves of 119.3 Bscf (79.8 Bscf net to Corridor's interest) within the assessed area, stating that.... "The forecast gas demand relating to the PCS contract is a small fraction of the estimated gas-in-place for the McCully Field.... The available data indicate that the gas export scheme will be economically attractive and Corridor has a well-defined plan of action in pursuit of this development opportunity. APA therefore recognizes Probable Gas Reserves in relation to the gas export option."
The updated reserves report covers an area of less than 20% of
the McCully structure, as limited by current 3-D seismic coverage and
to the area where most of the McCully wells have been drilled to date
(please refer to the accompanying map showing the assessed area in
yellow within the overall McCully structure presented in red).
Corridor expects to expand the area of assessment once additional 3-D
seismic has been obtained and additional wells have been drilled in
the field. The report takes account of activities up to Corridor's
fiscal year end (August 31, 2005) and prior to certain subsequent
drilling and frac activities later in the year.
