CALGARY, Jan. 6, 2014 /CNW/ - Calvalley Petroleum Inc. ("Calvalley" or
the "Company") provides the following operations update for
Recent disruptions in the Hadramout province have impacted crude oil
pipeline shipments and crude oil trucking operations in the area,
including Calvalley at Block 9.
Calvalley is managing its production operations at Block 9 consistent
with its capability to transport its crude oil production. The Company
shut down production from the Al Roidhat field in late December and
production from both the Hiswah and Ras Nowmah fields have now been
shut down as a result of crude oil storage tanks being full.
Calvalley management and staff are working closely with the government
of Yemen and local officials to resolve the concerns of locals in the
region of Block 9 and to return production operations to normal. The
Company believes these concerns can be resolved in a timely manner.
The disruptions to the crude oil transportation network are localized
and do not impact either production capability or drilling operations.
The Company currently has one drilling rig active. The drilling rig is
currently drilling an appraisal well at Ras Nowmah South and results
from the drilling operation will be released when they become
available. The forward drilling plan includes drilling an appraisal
well in the Ras Nowmah field and then to drill water injection wells in
the Hiswah field for implementation of the pressure maintenance scheme.
Calvalley is an international oil and gas company, with offices in
Calgary, Alberta, Canada, that operates its 50% working interest in
Block 9 of the Masila Basin, in The Republic of Yemen.
