Petrolia expects to advance to the drilling stage for the Haldimand Corridor Project during 2009. Wholly owned by Petrolia, the project lies to the northwest and the southeast of Haldimand. The Haldimand Corridor is a priority project in which the Company invested $1.2 M in exploration work in 2008.
The geophysical, soil-geochemistry, and surface geology work carried out in 2008 has form a valuable data for Petrolia. The results of the geochemical analyses of soil samples (absorbed gases) confirm the presence of highly atypical concentrations of hydrocarbons near the surface. These results suggest the presence of numerous zones with the potential to contain petroleum.
Based on these results, Petrolia undertook, last December, an 83 km seismic acquisition campaign.
The seismic results show that the Haldimand Corridor contains significant number of potential traps. The focus is currently on two exploration approaches:
"What we have learned since the discovery of the Petrolia-Haldimand well has opened the door wide to future finds. Geologically-speaking, an oilfield discovery is not generally an isolated incident," emphasized Andre Proulx, president of Petrolia. "We believe that the results obtained from this exploration work more than justify Petrolia's financial engagement which will be managed by the Company."
