Continuation of the stratigraphic coring program near Massé

BROSSARD, QC, July 31, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - The management of Ressources & Energy Squatex Inc. (Squatex) is pleased to announce that it intends to continue its exploration program this fall in the Lower St. Lawrence to evaluate the possible extension of the Massé structure.

The stratigraphic coring Massé No.1 and No.2 obtained significant shows of gas with condensate and oil (20o API). These holes were drilled on seismic AVO anomalies type (amplitude vs. offset) indicating the probable presence of reservoirs with significant porosity in zones of hydrothermal dolomitization within the Sayabec Formation. The geophysical interpretation performed by Squatex shows that AVO anomaly zones observed could extend over more than 300 km2, which, using the parameters measured in the Massé wells and confirmed by Sproule, could allow for the presence of a reservoir rock that could contain an median volume of gas in place of 300 BCF and more.

By the end of 2015, Squatex will make all efforts needed to evaluate the potential of Massé's structure. Furthermore, within its 2015/2016 exploration program, Squatex plans to drill three additional stratigraphic core holes respectively reaching depths of 1600, 1800 and 2000 meters over porosity anomalies located at 5 Km, 10 Km and 20 Km from the Massé No.1 and No.2 locations. Tested drilling equipment similar to those used last year, with an internal mud circulation and security systems adapted to smaller diameters, will be used. The drill sites were selected from seismic interpretations and geological correlations with the Massé structure. This new drilling campaign is conditional upon Squatex obtains sufficient funding.
