Lux Energy Sets Sights on Medicine Hat Natural Gas Prospect
Lux Energy has entered into negotiations to participate in significant natural gas prospect in South Eastern Alberta. Lux is seeking an agreement for a 50% working interest in eight development NG leases in the sweet gas rich areas of Medicine Hat.
Southern Alberta gas plays have produced thousands of wells over the past several decades. This area is historically famous in oil and gas circles for low cost, high BTU content reservoirs in the Milk River and Medicine Hat geological formations. The arena of petroleum spans 10,000 square kilometers of Sandstone Geology starting at the Foothills and stretching into Saskatchewan.
The prospect will involve a drilling program of 20 to 30 wells per section drilled to depths of 800 meters. Reservoir life is estimated at between 13 to 30 years. The project has outstanding economies. Wells can be drilled, completed and tied into established gathering, processing and delivery infrastructure within 30 days. In addition, the joint venture operator advises that recent technical advances in this play have increased potential recoveries and increased production.
Shane Broesky, President of Lux Energy Corp, comments, "Medicine Hat is an exceptional opportunity which became available with our partners in other areas. Medicine Hat, Central Alberta, Northern B.C. and Oklahoma are all on the screen. We intend to take advantage of the recent upsurge in NG prices. Recent acquisitions by petroleum super majors indicate very strong future natural gas products."
