Borger, Texas–(Newsfile Corp. – September 11, 2017) Molori Energy Inc. (TSXV: MOL OTCQB: MOLOF) (“Molori” or the “Company”) reports:
Against the backdrop of Hurricane Harvey’s (“Harvey”) devastating effects and unprecedented flooding in Southern Texas, U.S.A., Molori provides the following update on operations and Red Cave Drilling Program.
Molori has operations in the Texas Panhandle in northern Texas. Harvey did not ‘directly’ damage this region and Molori’s Texas-based operating partner has continued ‘well-recompletion’ efforts with little interruption.
Molori has underway its first well (M1) in the Panhandle. Harvey and circumstances in Houston did impact the Company’s Houston-based engineering staff and also initially delayed the arrival of certain services critical to drilling, however well operations are now underway, and Molori anticipates completion of the M1 well during the month of September. The well, with a target depth of 3600 feet, is designed to test the Red Cave and Brown Dolomite formations.
Molori further plans for the spudding of a second well (M17) prior to the end of September. Each new well is estimated to cost approximately USD $300,000. Following testing of these first two wells, Molori anticipates that the Company will be well positioned to then outline an aggressive drilling program for the remainder of 2017 and the first half of 2018.
Molori presently has access to over approximately 6,000 acres and potentially 600 drill locations with access to the Red Cave and Brown Dolomite formations. In addition, the Company is aggressively working to secure additional Red Cave acreage and anticipates announcements with regards to the acquisition of said Red Cave additional acreage in coming weeks. The Company continues to execute the strategy to add more productive wells, assess less productive wells, and continue to lower production costs per barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) by continuing its well-recompletion program in conjunction with drilling into the Red Cave formation.
Commented Joel Dumaresq, CEO of Molori, “With our exploration program now underway, we are excited about this next pivotal phase of Molori’s evolution. We are testing our theory that by introducing progressive and leading edge technology to this area, we can greatly accelerate the growth in our production and reserves, much the way our neighbors in the Panhandle have. As further evidence in our confidence in the play, we are actively adding to our acreage holdings, and will continue to secure potential drill locations.
