Talisman Spuds St. Edouard 1 Well in Quebec

Questerre reported that the operator, Talisman Energy, has spud the St. Edouard #1 well in the St. Lawrence Lowlands, Quebec.

St. Edouard #1 is the fourth well in a four-well farm-in program. The well will test multiple horizons including the Trenton Black-River plus the Utica and Lorraine shale sequences.

Testing operations for several prospective shale intervals are underway on the La Visitation #1 well. Preliminary results are expected in the second quarter of 2009.

Questerre is a Calgary-based independent resource company actively engaged in the exploration, development and acquisition of high-impact exploration and development oil and gas projects in Canada.
