Operational Update on LAK Ranch Wyoming Oil Project
| ||The Company is pleased to announce the continued operation of its refitted 50 million BTU generator has enabled the shipment of 1,767 barrels of oil at an average revenue of US$89 per barrel in the quarter ended January 31, 2012. This compares favorably to the January 31, 2011 quarter when only 458 barrels at an average revenue of US$77 per barrel were shipped. This continues the steadily increasing production dynamics last reported by the Company in May 2011. The month of February 2012 is promising to be even more robust with 744 barrels produced to the 18th of the month, well on target for over 1000 barrels for the month alone.|
Mr. Barry C.J. Ehrl noted "not only is our production rising but the spread between natural gas, our main cost, and the realized price for our oil has never been wider. With the current abundance of natural gas and the various pricing uncertainties in the oil market we expect this wide margin to remain in place for the next year."
The performance of the new generator and the various surface facility improvements it necessitated has led increased operational efficiencies and is responsible for the production increases.
