Force Energy Picks Up 50% Interest in Canadian Asset

Force Energy has acquired a total 50% working interest in the Hayter Well (10D Hayter 10-8-40-1 W4M) located in Alberta, Canada. The well was spudded in January 2007 and drilled to a total depth. The well logs revealed a gas zone of 4 to 5 meters of thickness in a shallow zone and a heavy oil pay zone of 2 meters of thickness in the target Dina Sand zone. Although the results in the Dina sand were lower than expected and a decision was made to case the well in 2007, at today's prices, the Hayter could produce an economic well.

County Line Energy completed a $650,000 3D seismic program covering nine sections of land in pursuit of a potential multi well heavy oil drilling opportunity. The geological model was based on interpretation from a previous well, which produced 16,000 barrels of heavy oil. The seismic program was designed to determine whether the structure found in this well existed to a larger extent on the subject property. The 3D seismic revealed an extremely large anomaly with similar characteristics. The nature of this large anomaly suggested that a multi well drilling opportunity might exist. Although this well will likely be completed as a producing well the results of the drilling have negated the ultimate potential of the Hayter property.
