Sun Cal Energy Reports Daily Gas Flow Rates in Excess of 12 Mmcf/d
Sun Cal Energy Inc. has been advised by the operator of the Cunningham 1-02 well on the Hobart Prospect in Washita County, Oklahoma that the daily gas flow rates from the Cunningham 1-02 well are in excess of 12 million cubic feet a day.
These results build on the successful drilling and commercial results of the first deep development well, Sturgeon 1-11, also drilled by the same operator and located within the Hobart Prospect. Together, these two wells represent the commercial success of the Hobart Prospect.
Commenting on these developments, Lewis Dillman, President and Chief Executive Officer of Sun Cal Energy Inc. stated: "We are excited that a second deep development well has reached production and commercial validation. The successful drilling and production of these wells suggest that the prospect could attract additional interest and thus drilling activity by major operators. This in turn could provide greater cash flows and upside potential to our shareholders."
Recently, Range Resources applied before the Corporation Commission of the State of Oklahoma to seek a third scheduled well within the Hobart Prospect.
Sun Cal Energy Inc. owns a 1.5% gross overriding royalty interest in the 1211 acre Hobart prospect strategically located in the Anadarko Basin and part of the Springer Morrow play – the largest such play in the State and Mid-Continent. Key players running rigs in the immediate area include Marathon Oil, Chesapeake Energy, and Range Resources.
"The successful drilling and production of a second deep development well represents another key milestone as we continue to seek cash flow and production," stated Lewis Dillman. "Sun Cal will continue to focus on developing its assets, and seeking opportunities to partner with major industry leaders to maximize value to our shareholders."
