Powder River Basin Gas Corp. has completed drilling of the first well in the Brookshire Salt Dome project - the Minns Josh #1 in Texas.

The well hit four pay zones, each of which held over 1000 psi average.

Completion of the well to production will take approximately three weeks. Production equipment, flow lines, and other service equipment will be put in place prior to perforating and production completion of the well.

This well is directly offsetting the Kuraiti lease, a neighboring property, which had initial production of 800 BOPD and was choked back to 200 BOPD for production purposes.

"We are very excited to bring on the first well in the Brookshire project as initial indications from the well logs show we will reach our projected expectations from the first well. As soon as this well is in full production, we plan to drill an additional two wells and bring them to full production before laying out our full program. This allows us the opportunity to monitor the production, while we research the extent of the additional equipment required," stated Powder River Basin Gas Corp. CEO Brian Fox.

Powder River Basin Gas Corp. is active in production, acquisition, and marketing of crude oil and natural gas products. Powder River Basin Gas Corp. trades on the OTCBB under the symbol PRVB.
