Energy Stock News: First Helium (TSXV: HELI) Oil Production Surpasses 100,000 Barrel Milestone

Company Prepares for Oil Target Drill Testing and Prioritizes Additional Drilling Targets


Calgary, Alberta - October 26, 2023 (Newsfile Corp.) ( Newswire) First Helium Inc. (TSXV: HELI) (OTCQX: FHELF) (FSE: 2MC) ("First Helium" or the "Company"), an exploration and development company with properties in Northern and Southern Alberta, is pleased to announce that its two 100% owned oil wells, 1-30 and 4-29, have cumulatively produced over 105,000 barrels of approximately 35-degree API light oil through the Company's Worsley oil facilities. Since coming onstream in Q1 2022, the wells have generated over $12,500,000 in revenue which has helped fund ongoing helium exploration and development activities. In addition to the two low risk oil operations proposed this winter, one of which is targeting booked proven undeveloped reserves of over 160,000 barrels of light oil, the Company is further prioritizing its inventory of drilling locations for oil, natural gas and helium for future exploration and development.

"Our back-to-back Leduc oil discoveries have provided significant revenue and cash flow enabling us to accelerate our helium exploration activities," said Ed Bereznicki, President & Chief Executive Officer of First Helium. "Our 15 identified drilling locations, following positive results, will add multiple follow-up targets to our inventory which positions the Company well to provide substantial growth and scale on its existing Worsley land base," added Mr. Bereznicki.

Worsley is a historically active oil & gas exploration area that is very attractive for multi-product exploration including oil, helium, and natural gas. Lands within the Worsley Trend exploration area have produced over 315 billion cubic feet of gas and 17 million barrels of oil to date. Producers include Shell plc, Suncor Energy Inc. and Canadian Natural Resources Limited. The majority of this production came from 8 zones. First Helium's large land base (100% working interest in over 60,000 acres in the Worsley Trend) is positioned where proprietary seismic and data from historical drilling provide for lower risk future development.

The geology of the area provides multi-zone and multi-product target exposure with each drill. This enables the Company to drill for oil, natural gas and helium from multiple productive geologic formations in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Identified drilling locations have the potential to add significant value and cash flow to the Company. Obtaining cash flow and value through drilling and producing existing oil and natural gas in areas with recognized concurrent helium makes First Helium unique amongst its peers.


Led by a core Senior Executive Team with diverse and extensive backgrounds in Oil & Gas Exploration and Operations, Mining, Finance, and Capital Markets, First Helium seeks to be one of the leading independent providers of helium gas in North America.

Building on its successful 15-25 helium discovery well at the Worsley project, the Company has identified numerous follow-up drill locations and acquired an expansive infrastructure system to facilitate future exploration and development of helium across its Worsley land base. Cash flow from its successful oil wells at Worsley has helped support First Helium's ongoing helium exploration and development growth strategy. Further potential oil drilling locations have been identified on the Company's Worsley land base.

First Helium holds over 60,000 acres along the highly prospective Worsley Trend in Northern Alberta, and 276,000 acres in the Southern Alberta Helium Fairway, near existing helium production. In addition to continuing its ongoing exploration and development drilling at Worsley, the Company has identified a number of high impact helium exploration targets on the prospective Southern Alberta Helium Fairway lands to set up a second core exploration growth area for the Company.
