TSX - V: STO
CALGARY, Nov. 6 /CNW/ - Shelton Canada Corp. (TSX Venture: STO) reports a
twentyfold increase in the company's third quarter results, compared to the
same period one year ago. Shelton's unaudited financial and operational
results for the three and nine months ended August 31, 2007, show that the
acquisition of Zhoda (2001) Corporation in August for approximately
$4.9 million gave the company a dramatic boost. Third quarter production
increased by 2151% while revenues rose by 2552% compared to the prior year.
Zhoda owns a 45% interest in Kashtan Petroleum Inc., a limited liability
company, which operates a joint venture in Ukraine's Lelyaki oil fields with a
current net production of approximately 275 bbls of light oil per day.
"The substantial increase in production and revenues for the nine month
period compared to last year includes only one month of production from the
Lelyaki field within the third quarter." said Mr. Potoczny, President and CEO
of Shelton Canada. "The strong financial performance in Q3 supports the
company in its current development program in Ukraine."
Shelton together with its joint venture partner, Ukrnafta, is currently
completing the drilling of a joint venture well on the newly acquired Lelyaki
field in Ukraine and the results should be available within the next couple of
