Pryme's Coleman No. 8 Success Adds New Oil Reserves

Pryme Oil and Gas says the Coleman No. 8 test, which is located in the Routh Point field in Pryme's LaSalle Parish Project, has been drilled to a total depth of 4,500 feet and cored 9 feet of oil productive sand in the Wilcox F-2 interval. The well is located approximately 50 feet northeast of the existing Coleman No. 3 well with the primary objective being the F-2 sand, which had been previously logged and cored productive in the Coleman No. 3.

This interval between 4,190 feet and 4,199 feet was more than double the amount of interval behind pipe in the Coleman No. 3. The F-2 was also cored oil productive but not perforated in the Justiss-Mears Coleman No. 1 over 1,500 feet to the north of the Coleman No. 8. If the two F-2 intervals are connected, this could increase the known oil reserves in the Routh Point Field.

Seven sands (A-2, B-2, C-2, F-2, G-3, G-4 and H-2) had commercial oil shows and one sand had a non-commercial oil show (E-3). A successful completion could result in two or more additional drilling locations targeting the F-2 sand. Completion of this well will begin immediately.

"The result of this well has exceeded our expectation. Our LaSalle Parish project has always been a development play for us with strong production and consequently solid revenues tying into proven reserves confirmed by independent reservoir engineering. What is also interesting to note is the existence of additional zones identified in this well that are produced from the Coleman No. 1 and No. 3 indicating to us a substantial reserve of oil remaining in this field despite nearly six years of production," Justin Pettett, Pryme's Managing Director, said.

Pryme has a 13% working interest (9.75% net revenue interest) in this well.

The company has benefited from the increase in oil prices over the past 60 days and is close to recording record levels of net operating income from this project due mainly to the increased oil production and prices.
