Delta Oil and Gas, Inc, (OTC:BB – DLTA) is pleased to report that its Donner #1 Well was drilled to a total depth of 7,600 feet on June 4, 2010 and flowed at the rate of 192 barrels of oil per day (“bopd”) during the initial test. In order to further test the well, a #5 choke was added to restrict the flow to approximately 50 bopd of very high quality 42 API oil. The test period has ended and the well is now being tied in to a new battery facility owned by the Company and its Partners. Delta expects the well to be on full production within the next two weeks.
A complete suite of logs run on the well indicate approximately 13 feet of oil pay with an average porosity of 30%. The Company’s reservoir Engineer and Geologist calculate the drainage to cover approximately 40 to 50 acres. Delta will be evaluating the expected production rates and the Company has instructed it’s Consultants to set locations for 2 additional wells based on the 3-D Seismic and the success of Donner #1. The Company is also evaluating the wisdom of opening up significant reserves within Donner #1 with a horizontal leg.
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.
