Advantagewon Oil (CSE: AOC) (OTCQB: ANTGF) Provides Update on Two Wells Drilled in Q1 2018 and Brings Two Additional Wells onto Production
Toronto, Ontario - May 1, 2018 (Newsfile Corp.) (Investorideas.com Newswire) Advantagewon Oil Corp. (CSE: AOC), (OTCQB: ANTGF), (the "Corporation", "Advantagewon", "AOC") provides this update with respect to our six well drilling programme, other operational matters, and the Management Team.
As previously disclosed, Advantagewon has drilled two new wells in the LaVernia area. Weather delays at the start of Advantagewon's drilling program created a timing conflict for the drilling contractor who had a commitment to another party to drill a well on their lease prior to its expiry. As a result, the rig was not available to continue with the company's drilling as had been expected. Permitting for three of the four remaining wells was slower than expected but all permits are now in place. AOC is working with the drilling contractor to return the drill rig to our planned programme as soon as possible.
Both wells that were drilled had oil shows in the drilling fluids and log depths and character was consistent with expectations. Work to bring in equipment to evaluate production capability of these wells is continuing and we will update the markets within the next two weeks.
The Corporation is pleased to announce that it has hired John Garden, Professional Engineer, to manage its drilling and production operations and related contractors. John holds B.Sc. in Chemical and Petroleum Engineering from The University of Calgary, Alberta and has managed onshore drilling and production operations in Canada, the United States and internationally. John is the founder and principal of Deadeye Engineering and with staff, over the period of 2004 to 2012, managed drilling, completions and equipping over 2000 horizontal wells with a combined budget of over $1,750,000,000. John is also the Past President and current Vice President of the Canadian Association of Drilling Engineers.
Following the departure of the contractor who had operated the company's wells and coordinated drilling activity in the LaVernia area March 30, 2018, the Corporation has hired a new oil well operator for this area. The new operator has been familiarizing himself with the company leases and wells and has identified opportunities for the company to bring some additional existing wells back on production. To date two wells have been brought back on. We are in the process of evaluating production rates and will provide an update within one week.
We expect to find similar opportunities as work progresses and will provide an update in the next 10 days on this area.
