Daybreak Initiates Four Well Drilling Program
Daybreak Oil and Gas, Inc. intends to drill an additional four wells in its Tensas and Franklin Parish prospect area in northeast Louisiana. The first well, prospect "A-1", will be spudded in late July to test the Basal Tuscaloosa Formation. Three additional wells are planned this year, based on an inventory of prospects within a 55 square mile 3-D seismic survey area.
Prospect "A-1" is approximately two miles northwest of the "F-1" discovery well which Daybreak drilled in January 2006. The "F-1" well, which had been shut-in, was brought back online on July 11, 2007 after the Company received a permit to dispose of produced wastewater. The well has been flowing at an average daily rate of approximately 415 MCF (thousand cubic feet) and 69 Bbl (barrels) of oil since returning to production. In the short-term, the "F-1" will be produced on a variety of choke sizes, flowing pressures, and production rates to determine the most efficient rate.
Immediately following the drilling of prospect "A-1", Daybreak intends to drill the "F-2" location, which is a southern offset to the "F-1" well. The third and fourth wells in this drilling program intend to be drilled in the fourth quarter of this year. These wells will test two additional formations known to be prospective in the region.
Daybreak's leasehold interests are comprised of over 20,000 net acres in this project. As previously reported, the leasehold was primarily acquired through purchase and farm-out agreements with local landowners and Anadarko E & P Company, LP.
Robert Martin, President of Daybreak, states: "We are excited about the scheduled drilling program in our successful Tensas play area; along with, the return of production from the "F-1" discovery well. These activities, coupled with Daybreak's announcement last week regarding the San Joaquin Valley, California seismic option farming agreement signed with Chevron USA, Inc., create the opportunity for Daybreak to again establish stock momentum; and, provide the potential for future growth."
