Delta Oil and Gas, Inc, (OTC:BB – DLTA) is pleased to report that the company has successfully drilled Donner #1 to total depth. This is the first of three proposed wells in its Texas Project. Based on the suite of electric logs conducted on this well over the weekend, Delta and its partner unanimously agreed to complete the well for oil production. The setting of production casing was completed on. Monday June 7, 2010.
The first well (“Donner #1”) was spud on May 28, 2010 and the targeted depth of 7,600 feet was achieved on June 4, 2010. A suite of electric logs was run to total depth and these have strongly indicated approximately 20 feet of hydrocarbon pay. Based on this initial data, Delta and its partner decided to set production casing. Delta will be evaluating the expected production rates and the Company has instructed it’s Consultants to set locations for additional wells, as well as to evaluate the wisdom of opening up significant reserves within Donner #1 with lateral drilling.
The Texas prospect contemplates the drilling of a total of three wells in the Newton County area. Once flowing production has stabilized the Company will provide further updates.
Delta owns a 40% gross working interest in the wells covered by this drilling program and at present, has fully paid the drilling and completion costs associated with the Donner #1.
