    The Shamrock Project is a five well Frio-age prospect identified through
3-D seismic. The target objective is the Jameson Sand at 3200'. Frio-age wells
have proven to be prolific natural gas producers throughout the Texas Gulf

day with estimated total recoverable reserves of approximately 500 million
cubic feet to 1 Billion cubic feet.
    Gulf Western currently has three of the five wells completed and tested.
These wells are the Polinard-Lee No. 1 well; the Miller-Thomas No. 1 well; and
the Bushmill No. 1 well. All three wells flow tested in excess of 300 Mcfd and
are awaiting meters to be set at the delivery point of the pipeline. The
extension of the gathering system that is required for the two additional
wells is currently under construction and all five wells are scheduled for
hook up within the next ten to fifteen days.
