CALGARY, March 4 /CNW/ - Base Oil & Gas Ltd. ("Base" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: BOG) is pleased to report on the progress of its first horizontal Cardium well in the Pembina area. The well was rig-released February 4th, and has a horizontal leg of 796 meters. Heavy demand for oilfield services in the area delayed the start of the fracturing process until February 28, at which time the well was completed using a 6 stage frac program. The well is expected to be tied in by the middle of March and initial production data will be released as it becomes available.
Base has earned a 30% working interest in this well and the related section under a previously announced farm-in agreement. The second earning well under this agreement is expected to be drilled in June.
Base Oil and Gas Ltd. is a Calgary based emerging oil and gas company, focused on the development of Cardium oil & gas reserves in the Western Canadian Sedimentary basin.
