SHARES OUTSTANDING: 123 MILLION
SYMBOL & EXCHANGE: FGT-V
MONTREAL, March 27 /CNW Telbec/ - Forest Gate Resources Inc. reports that
its co-owned Ferrybank well went on production on Monday, March 24, 2008. The
well produced approximately 135 barrels of oil in the first 36 hours, which
appears to be 100% oil, as the original sample indicated no water.
It is too early to determine whether this rate of production will be
sustained. The operator will now spend the next week monitoring the production
rate, allowing it to stabilize.
"We've now gone from oil discovery to oil production", said Michael
Judson, President and CEO of Forest Gate. "What started as a happy surprise at
Ferrybank is now delivering rewards."
Forest Gate holds 37.5% interest in the Ferrybank well.
