Samson Unveils Q4 2009 Report

Samson Oil & Gas Limited lodged its December 2008 Quarterly Report for the quarter ended December 31, 2008.



  • Cash reserves at AUD 3.2 million, after an investment of AUD 0.6 million in the completion of two producing wells.
  • Cash receipts from sales for the quarter of AUD 2.0 million.
  • Net cash flow of AUD 1.5 million from production despite lower commodity prices.
  • Oil and gas production for the quarter is lower than the previous quarter, primarily due to an isolated operational problem associated with the State GC #1 well in New Mexico.


  • Sabretooth Prospect, (onshore Gulf Coast Basin, Brazoria County Texas): the Davis Bintliff #1, which was initially tested at rates up to 6.2 MMcf/d and 74 bopd constrained by a small choke size from a Middle Oligocene Trans-Vicksburg sand, was put to sales in mid January 2009 at an initial rate of 3.3 MMcf/d with 40 bopd.
  • North Harstad Oil Field (Williston Basin, Wyoming): the Leonard #1-23H was deepened to investigate the Upper Devonian-Lower Mississippian Bakken Formation and successfully completed as a 5,200 foot lateral in the Middle Bakken, with an initial flow back rate (un-stabilized) of 820 bopd.
  • Five additional proved undeveloped drilling locations within the North Harstad Field defined as a result with Samson’s equity at around 33%.
