Bering Spuds Concordia Parish Well

Bering Exploration, Inc. announced Monday that drilling has begun on the Sharp Heirs A No. 1 well located in Concordia Parish, Louisiana. This well will be drilled to a depth of approximately 7,500 feet to test the prospective zones in the Wilcox formation. This prospect has the potential for multiple wells and potential gross reserves of 500,000 barrels of oil. Bering will have a 10% working interest in this prospect.

"We are excited to begin drilling our initial well on this prospect and expect to reach total depth in a couple of weeks," stated Steven Plumb, VP of Finance of Bering. "If successful, this prospect has the potential to significantly add to our existing production."
