Forest Gate Farms Into New Celtic Sea License


    MONTREAL, March 28 /CNW Telbec/ - Forest Gate Resources Inc. reports that
the company and its partners have been granted a new exploration licence,
Standard Exploration Licence No. 3/07, in the Celtic Sea Basin over the
Blackrock discovery.
    The Irish Minister for Communications, Marine and Natural Resources has
approved the granting of a new Petroleum Exploration License to Providence and
its existing partners.
    Standard Exploration License 3/07 has been granted over part blocks
48/29, 48/30 & 49/26 in the North Celtic Sea Basin. License No. 3/07 is a
successor license to Licensing Option 03/1, which contains the "Blackrock" oil
    Providence, the operator, has also successfully concluded its Ocean
Bottom Seismic (OBS) Survey over the Blackrock oil discovery. The survey was
carried out in November 2006 by the Ocean Bottom Instrument Consortium (OBIC).
The data have since been processed and interpreted by OBIC. The results
support the post-drill interpretation of the 2004 Blackrock well and indicate
the potential presence of additional hydrocarbons between the existing well
control points.
    In addition to the OBS data, multi-channel reflection seismic data were
acquired along two transects over the crest of the Blackrock structure. These
lines indicate that the crestal area is larger than had been previously mapped
and also indicates the possible presence of a gas chimney. These encouraging
data will now be factored into the assessment of future drilling plans and
    The farm-in follows on from the recent announcements where Forest Gate
farmed into Standard Exploration License 2/07 on similar equity positions.
    The participants in the license are: Providence Resources Plc. 40%
(Operator), Forest Gate Resources Inc. 15%, Challenger Minerals Ltd. 15%, Dyas
BV 15%, Atlantic Petroleum Ltd. 10% and Midmar Energy Ltd. 5%.
