Positive impacts for RainChief's Gulf Jensen Prospect oil property
VANCOUVER, April 23, 2012 /CNW/ - RainChief Energy Inc. [OTCBB: RCFEF] today summarized recent remarks made by US President Barack Obama during a visit to the New Mexico oil fields located in the State's Permian Basin region. The President picked the Permian Basin region to make his statements based on its strong oil and gas economy and future potential.
RainChief's Gulf Jensen Prospect is located in the historically productive Basin.
Commenting on Permian Basin oil exploration and development, the President stated bluntly, "If you hear anybody say that we're against drilling for oil, they either don't know what they're talking about or they're not telling you the truth. We're drilling all over the place."
The Permian Basin has produced over 20 billion barrels of oil with a financial value that exceeds $2 trillion, based on today's oil prices. The Basin produces 17% of total United States crude oil and represents 66% of Texas' current oil production. Proven reserves are second only to Alaska and New Mexico's portion of the Basin holds three of the 100 largest oil fields in the US.
Based on output from the State's oil and gas-rich Permian Basin, New Mexico is the 7th largest US producer of crude oil [61,146,000 barrels per year] and the 5th largest on-shore natural gas producer [1,403,832 MMcf]. The state ranks 4th in US proven crude oil reserves.
The Gulf Jensen Prospect includes 2,400 gross acres of oil and gas leases. For comparative analysis, Gulf Jensen's neighboring Peterson oil field has recorded production rates to 492 bpd. Per well oil recoveries range up to 230,000 bbls with 1.0 BCF of natural gas.
RainChief Energy is actively engaged in identifying, financing & developing oil & gas energy resource properties in North America, including the development of the Gulf Jensen Oil Prospect in New Mexico. The company continues to review additional resource properties that combine positive elements of short-term exploration & development costs with high potential for long-term success & financial return.
