Interra Spuds YNG 3267 Development Well in Myanmar's Yenangyaung Oil Field

Interra Resources Limited disclosed Wednesday that its jointly controlled entity, Goldpetrol Joint Operating Company Inc., has commenced drilling development well YNG 3267 in the Yenangyaung oil field in Myanmar.

Interra has a 60 percent interest in the Improved Petroleum Recovery Contract of the Yenangyaung field and also owns 60 percent of Goldpetrol which is the operator of the field. YNG 3267 is being drilled using Goldpetrol’s ZJ 450 rig, thus drilling costs are expected to be relatively low. Interra’s share of the cost of drilling is funded from existing funds on hand.

YNG 3267 is drilled as an up-dip offset to three oil producers which have been completed over the previous six months at rates as high as 176 barrels of oil per day. The targeted depth is 4,000 feet with the primary objective of accelerating production from the oil reservoirs that produce from wells in this fault block.

Interra estimates that the results of the drilling and completion should be available in approximately six weeks. The company will announce the results as soon as they may be ascertained as well as updates reflecting critical or unexpected events during drilling.
