CALGARY, Oct. 18 /CNW/ - Avery Resources Inc. (TSX-V: ARY) today
announced that its wholly-owned Australian subsidiary, Avery Resources
(Australia) Pty. Ltd., has advanced plans for exploration of the Turban Block,
a 46 square kilometre area in the eastern part of PEL 103, which lies in the
South Australian sector of the Cooper Basin. The Turban Block (PEL 103 T)
covers a large part of the northwestern flank of the regional Innamincka High
feature, immediately updip from the Flax / Juniper oil field. Avery's PEL 103
partner, Innamincka Petroleum, has recently reported that its successful Flax
East 1 well confirms that the Juniper oil discovery and the producing Flax oil
field are connected, forming what may prove to be one of the largest onshore
oilfields in Australia spanning 120 square kilometres of surface area. Avery
plans to earn a 35% interest in the Turban Block by contributing to the cost
of a 3D seismic survey in the second quarter of 2008, and drilling of the
Turban 2 well is planned shortly thereafter. Avery is targeting oil that is
structurally higher and on the east side of a fault that separates it from the
Flax / Juniper pool.
Avery also has the opportunity to earn a 25% interest in the South Candra
Block (PEL 103 SC), located centrally between the Acrasia, Reg Sprigg and
Flax/Juniper oil fields, by contributing to the funding of a well in 2008.
Processing of 3D seismic data over a large portion of the block has been
completed and interpretation by the operator has commenced.
Avery has earned a 25% interest in the southern Aspen Block (PEL 103 A).
This area, with several wells that had strong oil shows, is currently being
assessed for its suitability for 3D seismic acquisition.
