CALGARY, May 29, 2012 /CNW/ - Emerald Bay Energy Inc. (TSX Venture: EBY) (the "Corporation" or "Emerald Bay") is pleased to provide an operational update on recent events.
MEDINA COUNTY, TEXAS
A multi-well drilling program has been initiated in the Taylor-Ina field of Medina County, Texas. 12 wells (3 net wells) are planned through Q2 and the first part of Q3, 2012. The program will be drilled in 4-well packages, and as of this writing 4 wells have been drilled, cased, and cemented. The logs were consistent with expectations and consistent oil "shows" were observed confirming the target zones of Escondido and Olmos sands. Completion operations are scheduled to begin June 2nd, with production operations expected to begin the week of June 11th. The drilling locations are direct offsets to existing production.
GUADALUPE COUNTY, TEXAS
After initial testing operations, the Company recently completed a land transaction of approximately 1230 acres surrounding its previously announced Imhoff #1 exploratory well in Guadalupe County, Texas. We are currently awaiting regulatory approval of a salt water disposal well on Company lands before continuing production testing operations. This Guadalupe County play is expected to yield multiple locations for Austin Chalk, Buda, Edwards intervals. Deeper tests are also planned at a later time to evaluate zones of interest below 5000 ft. on the subject lands. Horizontal drilling continues to unlock substantial reserves in this oil-rich region of South Central Texas.

This press release includes statements that may constitute "forward-looking" statements, usually containing the words "believe," "estimate," "project," "expect", "plan", "intend", "anticipates", "projects", "potential" or similar expressions.. Forward-looking statements inherently involve risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results to differ materially from the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are statements that are not historical facts.
Information inferred from the interpretation of drilling results may also be deemed to be forward looking statements, as it constitutes a prediction of what might be found to be present when and if a well is actually developed. BOE's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 Bbl is based on energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such information, which are considered reasonable by Emerald Bay at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. Actual results achieved will vary from the information provided and the variations may be material. There is no representation by Emerald Bay that actual results achieved will be the same in whole or part as those indicated in the forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements in this document include statements regarding the Company's exploration, drilling and development plans, the Company's expectations regarding the timing and success of such programs. In particular, forward-looking information in this news release includes, but is not limited to, statements with respect to: pipeline acquisitions and leasing; pipeline permits, pipeline construction, production estimates, drilling operations, completion operations, funding and development goals. Although we believe that the expectations reflected in the forward-looking information are reasonable, there can be no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. We cannot guarantee future results, level of activity, performance or achievements. Consequently, there is no representation that the actual results achieved will be the same, in whole or in part, as those set out in the forward-looking information. Factors that could cause or contribute to such differences include, but are not limited to, fluctuations in the prices of oil and gas, uncertainties inherent in estimating quantities of oil and gas reserves and projecting future rates of production and timing of development activities, competition, operating risks, acquisition risks, liquidity and capital requirements, the effects of governmental regulation, adverse changes in the market for the Company's oil and gas production, dependence upon third-party vendors, and other risks detailed in the Company's periodic report filings with the applicable securities regulators.
