Aroway Energy begins drilling at Kirkpatrick Lake in Alberta
CALGARY, Alberta -- Aroway Energy it has commenced drilling on its 100% owned and operated Kirkpatrick lake property in central, Alberta. Aroway will be drilling two Ellerslie oil prospects which have been selected from 3D seismic data interpretation, and are in a very prospective oil fairway with an offsetting pool having produced in excess of 1.39 mmbbl of light 38 degree API oil.
Both wells will be drilled to an approximate depth of 1,130 m and will be tied in to existing nearby infrastructure immediately upon completion and a short term production test. Aroway believes there may be three additional wells to be drilled upon the success of the initial test wells.
Chris Cooper, President & CEO of Aroway commented, "We are confident that our initial two wells at Kirkpatrick Lake will add immediate and significant oil production as we close in on our year end production target."
