CALGARY, Dec. 15 /CNW/ - Kallisto Energy Corp. (TSX Venture: KEC) (formerly Arrow Energy Ltd. - AOF) ("Kallisto" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an update of production results from its Pembina, Alberta drilling program. The three wells are averaging a combined 600 BOE per day (88 BOE per day net to Kallisto). Subject to regulatory approval, the Company expects that up to nine additional wells may be drilled on its Pembina lands with the next well expected to be drilled early in the first quarter of 2010.
Management anticipates that production from the Pembina wells will perform similar to industry and analyst expectations for wells drilled in the Cardium formation and completed using multi-stage fracture stimulations, with initial production rates of between 200 and 300 barrels per day, decreasing by more than 50% during the first six months. It is expected that each well will produce between 150,000 and 180,000 barrels of oil over its economic life.
Kallisto has a 16.6667% working interest in the first two wells and a 13.6667% working interest in the third well. The Company can increase its working interest to 25% in the wells through the exercise of purchase options. The funds required to exercise the purchase options are largely expected to be generated by Kallisto's working interest revenues from the Pembina wells.
Kallisto is a Calgary-based junior resource company engaged in the exploration, development and production of natural gas and oil primarily in Alberta.
