HOUSTON, Nov. 8, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Liberty Energy Corp. (OTCBB:LBYE) ("Liberty" or "the Company") is pleased to provide a further progress report on its Lockhart Lease, Caldwell County, Texas.
The Company is in the process of re-entering 3 wells and drilling out 1 well on the lease. The four wells in question are located on 3 tracts of land known as the Alexander A, housing 1 re-entry well called the #2, the Alexander B, housing 2 shut-in wells called the #1 and #3, and the Anton, housing 1 shut in well called the Anton #1.
The Company's lease crew has dug the firewall around the tanks and has begun erecting an enclosing fence around the tanks. Commercial Electric have been on location this week to replace two electricity poles and run an overhead power line which has been down for some time. Commercial Electric have also added meters and timers to each of the two wells and a trench has been dug from the closest poles to the wells in preparation for production. The Company will be verifying and testing the work performed by Commercial Electrical this week and anticipates having both wells producing by the end of the week.
Work on the Alexander A #2 is running three days behind schedule due to the unexpected breakage of two drill bits while drilling through the cast iron bridge. The Company has confirmed progress was made on Friday (5 November 2010) afternoon by adding more weight with additional drill collars and the crew progressed, slowly, to about 10' on Friday. The team will recommence today with the mill to determine that no metal shavings are being received before reverting back to a drill bit. The team are currently at a depth of 1845' and expected the cast iron bridge to reach a depth of around 1830'. The crew anticipate drilling through the cast iron bridge very shortly and are confident of making good progress here on in.
"Work has been a little slower than expected on the Alexander A #2 this week due to the cast iron bridge but we are extremely excited to have a power supply to the Alexander B #1 and #3 wells. We expect to have the #1 and #3 wells producing by the end of the week that will generate another positive revenue stream for the company. Overall we are pleased with the progress made and we will be working hard to get back on schedule," commented Ian Spowart, CEO of Liberty Energy Corp.
