CALGARY, March 25, 2015 /CNW/ - Calvalley Petroleum Inc. ("Calvalley" or the "Company") provides the following update for shareholders.
The Company has received formal notice from the operator of Block 51 of their intention to suspend operations at Block 51 and to shut-down the facilities.

As a result of the intended shut-down of the facilities at Block 51, the Company will be securing the facilities at the truck off-loading site located adjacent to the Block 51 facilities. The Company will continue to truck its crude oil production to Block 18 for export.
Average gross production volumes from January 1, 2015 to the current date are estimated to be approximately 3,600 bpd with the Hiswah field contributing 2,600 bpd, the Ras Nowmah field 870 bpd, and Ras Nowmah South field 130 bpd.
One export shipment of crude oil has occurred in the quarter to date with the next export shipment of crude oil expected in May. The Company sold a total of 90,000 barrels of crude oil in February 2015 at a price of US$56.83 per barrel.
