California O&G Spuds Louisiana Well

California Oil & Gas Corp. said that the Haas-Hirsch Unit # 60 well, South Krotz Springs prospect, St. Landry Parish, Louisiana, commenced drilling January 8, 2007. The well will be drilled directionally to target the Third Cockfield Sand at 10,700 feet (TVD) as identified by 3-D seismic. The Company recently increased its interest in this prospect to 25%. Drilling is anticipated to take about 30 days.

Krotz Springs Field has been a prolific gas field throughout its 60-year history with past production over 900 BCF. The Haas-Hirsch Unit # 60 well is designed to intersect the apex of the Third Cockfield Sand target zone, significantly higher than a previous producing well. The target zone is beneath the Krotz Springs Unit and the Haas-Hirsch Unit # 60 well is being deviated 1200 feet from the surface location of another well that is not currently in production. If production appears warranted, the use of facilities from this nearby well could minimize the time required to bring the new #60 well to production.

California Oil & Gas Corporation is a junior oil and gas exploration company with agreements for projects in California and Louisiana in the United States, and Chile, South America.
