Empyrean Energy to Test Glantal-1 Well

Empyrean Energy reports that a completion rig has now been contracted to test four initial zones for the presence of gas at the Glantal-1 well, the first well drilled by Empyrean and its partners in the Glantal Gas Project.

The operator of the Glantal Gas Project, Pannonian International Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of U.S.-based Galaxy Energy Corporation says that Koller Workover and Drilling GmbH, a German contractor, has been chosen to provide the completion rig and associated services for the testing operations at the Glantal-1 well. The operator advises that the contract with Koller is now executed and that the rig is expected to mobilize to site mid June for an anticipated start to testing operations on or around the June 19, 2006.
