Silver Star Energy, Inc. on Monday reported on the progress of pipeline
construction and ultimate tie-in of gas wells at the MB Gas Project,
located in the Manyberries area of Alberta, Canada. As reported,
Silver Star and MB Gas Inc. recently announced participation by the
Company under a loan agreement, and are currently working to tie-in
three natural gas wells owned and operated by Provident Energy Trust.
The Company has been informed by the operator that permitting has
been processed and the 1.5-mile pipeline construction is scheduled to
commence on or around July 15th. Pipeline tie-in of the 11-17 well is
anticipated to take 10 days. The 11-17 gas well was flow tested at
rates of 600 Mcf per day, and Southridge Petroleum Consulting Ltd. of
Calgary has estimated the potential for 2.4 Bcf gas at this location.
The 6-7 well that is located approximately 1.7 miles from the 11-17
well will be the next well to be tied in, and the line survey and
permitting has commenced. An additional 1.7 Bcf has been estimated
for this location.
This program is part of the 2007 development and operations plan to
tie-in and produce natural gas from three Provident Energy wells and
conduct well surveys to determine the geological potential of up to
twenty (20) Sawtooth Formation locations in the immediate vicinity of
the pipeline. MB Gas Inc. plans to tie-in five (5) currently shut-in
or abandoned gas wells in the 2007 calendar year with the aim of
producing in the 800 BOEPD range. Silver Star and its partner, MB Gas
Inc. (a private Alberta oil and gas exploration company), are focused
on the exploitation of targeted, low risk natural gas development
opportunities in southeastern Alberta.
