Forest Gate Participates in A New Alberta Gas Well


    MONTREAL, March 12 /CNW Telbec/ - Forest Gate Resources Inc. reports that
it has entered into a third joint venture agreement with Emerald Bay Energy
Inc., Calgary, to acquire a 38% working interest in the Kelsey exploration
well in Alberta.
    The plan is to drill a single Wabamun well at 01-23-43-18W4M to a total
depth of 460m TVD. The primary objective is exploration for gas in the Belly
River formations. If the well is successful it could be classified as a
shallow, sweet, Belly River gas well. The Kelsey exploration well is located
in Twp 44, Rge 18 W4M, approximately 65 miles SE of Edmonton, Alberta.
    Forest Gate also has a 10% before payout interest in four Nevis coalbed
methane wells which are currently producing a combined volume of just over 
500 mcf of natural gas per day. This production rate is building and will
continue to build over the next six months.
    In addition to the producing Nevis wells, Forest Gate has a 37.5% before
payout interest in the Ferrybank oil discovery, which recently swabbed about
92 barrels of crude oil with burnable gas. Further development work is
currently being done on this well.
    Forest Gate's participation in the Kelsey well is part of its strategy of
developing low risk, Canadian hydrocarbon production while focusing on
developing and participating in high impact international plays.
