Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. Provides Operational Update on Mako-6 and Magyarcsanad

    BUDAPEST, Hungary, June 6 /CNW/ -- Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO)
("Falcon" or the "Company") has issued an operational update as part of its
ongoing commitment to public disclosure announcing the following:
    Falcon has resumed testing operations on the Mako-6 well in the lowermost
part of the Basal Conglomerate, after fracture stimulating ("fracing") this
interval in April 2007 with 79,000 pounds of proppant and 3,100 bbls of frac
fluid.  Prior to this current testing operation, the Company opened the well
for flow, had gas flow to surface immediately and, due to the presence of
manageable levels of H2S, the well was shut-in to wait for the correct
equipment to flow the well safely.  The well was then shut-in with frac fluid
load still remaining for over a month.
    The well is currently being tested through perforations from 5,326 to
5,328 meters in the Lower Basal Conglomerate.  The fracced interval being
tested is from 5,279 meters to 5,365 meters, a total of 86 meters; 69 meters
Basal Conglomerate and 17 meters Synrift.  The Basal Conglomerate is 273
meters thick from 5075 meters to 5348 meters. This remaining 204 meters of
Basal Conglomerate will be tested following the completed analysis of results
from current test. The Company is encouraged with the initial gas shows from
this test and believes the gas shows will remain constant or will improve in
the upper part of the Basal Conglomerate where rock quality increases and sand
packages thicken.  Falcon intends to announce details on the gas shows from
this test after flow-back of frac fluid and bottom sediment has been
    On June 3, 2007, the test was resumed with an 8/64" choke.  Within 8
hours of opening the well and recovering 208 bbls of frac fluid, gas surfaced
in burnable quantities, which are too small to measure.  After flow testing
the well for 29 hours and recovering approximately 800 bbls of the frac fluid,
it was noted that the flow-back was producing greater than expected quantities
of bottom sediment.  On June 4, the well was opened up to a 12/64" choke to
assist in the clean-up. The well continued to produce gas in burnable
quantities through the test separator throughout the day.  On June 5, the well
experienced a partial to complete tubing plug, which temporarily caused the
well to cease flowing.  After three hours of no frac fluid recovery, the well
unloaded large quantities of bottom sediment, resulting in significant
quantities of gas flow in and an 8-foot to 10-foot flare and increased flowing
tubing pressures.  Falcon will continue to flow test the well, recover as much
of the frac load fluid as possible, ensure the tubing and perforations are
free and clear of any obstructions, and, if required, assist the well bore
unloading process via coil tubing-nitrogen.  About two-thirds of the frac load
water has been recovered.
    Preparations to fracture stimulate the Magyarcsanad well are underway.
Falcon is currently rigging up and will commence the well intervention and
testing program in the coming weeks.  Falcon is engineering a two stage frac
that is designed to treat the effective Endrod interval through the existing
perforation at 4,060 meters and introduce 4 sets of new perforations.  The new
perforations will straddle the existing perforations (2 sets above and below).
The combined two stage frac will consist of approximately 350,000 pounds of
proppant.  The treatment is designed to stimulate the entire Endrod formation
that is behind casing with a total effective frac height of nearly 300 meters.
It is anticipated actual testing operation will commence the end of June.
