Sep 30th, 2022 16:01 EST
CALGARY, ALBERTA, Sept. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marksmen Energy Inc. (“Marksmen” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MAH) is pleased to announce the following update to its 2022 drilling program:
Portage County, Ohio - Marksmen and its working interest partner, PEP Drilling LLC (“PEP”), have successfully recompleted the Clinton Sandstone zone of the Reese #1 oil and gas well. Marksmen has an 80% working interest before payout. Currently the well is producing oil and gas but is still recovering residual completion fluids. Minor technical issues with surface equipment are being addressed. The first load of oil is expected to be sold early next week.
Pickaway County, Ohio – Marksmen, as part of its continuing agreement with its long-term partner, Houghton Investments LLC (“Houghton”) is in the process of drilling additional Cambrian Knox offset wells, back-to-back.
The Holbrook Davis #1 (“HD1”) well has been drilled, logged, cased, and swab tested with good oil shows to surface. The logging and swabbing operation results are similar to those on the Davis Holbrook #2 well. Bottom hole equipment has been put in place and surface equipment and flow lines are currently being installed. Marksmen anticipates the well will be put on production in the first week of October. Marksmen has a 75% working interest in this well.
The Holbrook Davis #2 well is exciting in that an upper zone has been encountered that was not fully developed in our other Pickaway County wells. It is a thick zone and during drilling flowed significant oil to surface. This zone has been cased, and isolated and is awaiting more comprehensive logging with a technically advanced logging system. The lower zones that are similar in depth and thickness to our other wells are currently being drilled out and will be logged and swab tested in the same manner as HD1. Markmen is anticipating that this well will be put on production by the third week of October. Marksmen has a 100% working interest in this well until 125% of all capital costs are recovered and then it reverts to 75%.
The Davis #1 well has been drilled with oil shows to surface. It has been open hole logged and cased and is currently awaiting perforating, acidizing and swab testing. It will be equipped with a bottom hole assembly and surface equipment and put on production on before the third week of October. Marksmen has a 100% working interest in this well until 125% of capital costs are recovered and then it reverts to 75%.
Marksmen will continue its 2022 drilling program with additional wells in Portage County, Pickaway County and Hocking County as drilling rigs become available. Archie Nesbitt, CEO and President of Marksmen states: “I am very pleased to see the recompletion of one well in Portage County and the drilling of three wells in Pickaway County in such a short timeframe. I am particularly excited about the potential for the new thick upper zone encountered at Holbrook Davis #2.”
