Washington -- Daybreak Oil and Gas , gave an operational update on its drilling plans for the East Slopes project in Kern, California.

Bear Location : The company plans to drill three development oil wells in the currently producing Vedder sandstone reservoir. Daybreak has already constructed the locations, laid the flow lines and installed electrical service; which, will allow the wells to be put on production immediately after completion.
Black Location : The company plans to drill one development oil well in this currently producing Vedder reservoir. The location has been constructed and is ready for the drilling rig.
Sunday Location : The company plans to drill one development well in this currently oil producing Vedder reservoir.
Chimney Prospect : The company also plans to drill an exploration well to approximately 4,000 f on the Chimney Prospect. This well will test the Vedder and the deeper Eocene sands. The well location is in the southern portion of the company's acreage position.
James. F. Westmoreland, President and Chief executive officer commented, "We are pleased to get started on our oil development program at East Slopes. Since we already have the infrastructure in place, the five development wells will immediately generate new cash flow as soon as the wells are completed. The Chimney exploratory well, if successful, will open up a new area for our future expansion as we continue to develop our proven acreage. With the information we get from these new wells, an additional development program will be planned for the near future."
