Ivory Energy has achieved a milestone of producing at rates greater than 1,000 boepd. Recent increases in production are the result of drilling successes at Obed, Alberta and Silverdale and Furness, Saskatchewan as well as a positive response from the Silverdale waterflood and various recompletions and workovers of certain wells. Oil and gas sales for September 2008 were approximately 690 boepd with an estimated wellhead price of $79.75 per barrel for oil.
Production from our Saskatchewan oil properties is approaching 900 boepd. This production combined with the addition of the first Obed gas well, is approximately 1,050 boepd. Based on additional wells in Saskatchewan and the second successful Obed gas well coming on stream, Ivory is confident that it will achieve its previously announced guidance of 1,200 to 1,400 boepd sales by volume for the month of December 2008. The new wells at Obed, Silverdale and Furness not only increased production but also added significant new reserves to the Company.
As a result of the recent commodity price declines, Ivory has postponed its planned drilling program in Saskatchewan. Ivory believes this is a prudent approach given the uncertainty of today's oil price. Ivory will continue to monitor the wellhead oil price and is ready to continue drilling should the commodity prices improve. Routine field operations, including minor workovers, will continue as Ivory maintains its production with good production practices.
