LONDON, Dec. 16, 2010 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Alamo Energy Corp. (OTCBB:ALME), has agreed to participate in its third re-entry well with Allied Energy Inc., as the company looks to expand its oil producing assets in Ritchie County, West Virginia.
The WVIC D-12 well is located on the Eco Forrest Lease which includes approximately 493 acres. Alamo's objective is to increase oil production that started over two decades ago from the lower Huron Shale.
This re-entry recompletion program is aimed at the Squaw, Lower Big Injun, Upper Big Injun, Maxton and Devonian Shale formations with a three-stage 8,000 BBL frac. The land to resource ratio enables 25-acre spacing, which we believe will allow for up to 14 additional wells.
We believe the total potential cumulative production from the well may be as high as 20,000 barrels of oil equivalent. Alamo Energy also has the option to participate in 12 re-completion and 4 drilldown wells across approximately 1,520.4 acres in West Virginia. If exercised, the options will give the company access to drill up to 60 new wells in a secondary development phase.
Allan Millmaker, Chief Executive Officer, said, "As planned we are continuing to increase Alamo's presence in the Appalachian production basin. The results from our Valentine Well have been promising and we are striving for new ways to increase our efficiency and operational pace."
