Sound Oil Suspends Montemarciano Well

Sound Oil announced that the Casa Tiberi-1 exploration well, operated by its wholly-owned subsidiary Apennine Energy, has been successfully completed. The well achieved a gas flow rate of 26,000 scmd (approximately 0.91 MMscfd) on a restricted choke during clean-up operations. The well is currently being suspended and the drilling rig demobilized. The Company will study data from the well to determine a program for additional testing of the well and subsequent potential commercial production of the discovery.
