Aspen is currently conducting a 12 square mile 3-D seismic survey over leased acreage in Sutter County, California. This data will be processed and interpreted over the next few months and could yield several exciting shallow gas targets (2,500 feet) which will be drilled beginning in 2004.
Aspen has just drilled and run production casing on the Quarre #30-2 well, the third well on its 3,000 acre Sour Grass prospect located in Tehama County, California. It appears there may be 60 feet of potential net gas pay in the Forbes formation based on favorable mud log and electric log characteristics. 3-D seismic data was acquired by Aspen over this acreage in 2001 and 2 successful gas wells (out of 2 attempts) were drilled here in 2002. Two additional wells will be drilled on this prospect immediately following the Quarre well.
