CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/09/13 -- Mart Resources, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MMT) ("Mart" or the "Company") and its co-venturers, Midwestern Oil and Gas Company Plc. (Operator of the Umusadege field) and SunTrust Oil Company Limited (together "the Co-venturers") are pleased to announce initial flow rate test results for the UMU-10 well and an update on Umusadege field production for the month of December 2012 and the first week of January 2013.
UMU-10 Well Test Results
As previously announced, the UMU-10 well encountered 479 feet of gross hydrocarbon pay in 20 sands. Six of these sands, XVIIa & XVIIb (commingled), XVIIIa, XIX, XXb, and XXI, are to be perforated, tested, and completed for production. Any two of these zones can be produced simultaneously using dual string sliding sleeve completion technology. The sands completed in UMU-10 are expected to access 161 feet of the total 479 feet of gross pay in the well. Five of the UMU-10 sands (XVIIa & XVIIb (comingled) is treated as one completion interval) have now been perforated and completed. The first extended flow rate test has been conducted on the XXI sand, the deepest of the sands to be tested, at a stabilized rate of 1,943 bopd during initial well clean up.
During the test of the XXI sand, the well flowed 55.3 API gravity oil through 3 1/2 inch tubing on a 28/64 inch choke at a flowing tubing pressure of 1260 psi. Basic sediment and water (BS&W) was 5% with a gas/oil ratio of approximately 588 standard cubic feet per barrel.
Four UMU-10 well tests remain, including the individual testing of the XXb, XIX, XVIIIa, and the co-mingled testing of the XVIIa & XVIIb sands. All sands will be initially tested on restricted choke settings during clean up, as has been done for the XXI sand. Once all completed sands have finished the clean-up operations, each will undergo a multirate flow test on various choke sizes, which may include choke sizes greater than those used for the clean-up operations.
Further updates will be provided on these remaining targeted sands once testing has been completed and results are available.
December 2012 Production Update
As previously reported, there was no production from the Umusadege field in November 2012 through December 20, 2012 due to a shutdown of the export pipeline that started on October 30, 2012. Nigerian Agip Oil Company ("AGIP"), the pipeline operator, has advised that repairs to the export pipeline were completed, and production from the Umusadege field and other fields in the area (collectively the "Cluster") began on a test basis early on December 21, 2012. Production and deliveries into the export pipeline from the Cluster increased to normal levels by the end of December 2012 and have averaged 11,800 bopd during the period from January 1, 2013 to January 8, 2013.
Total crude oil deliveries into the export pipeline from the Umusadege field for December 2012 were approximately 92,000 bbls before pipeline losses. Pipeline and export facility losses for November 2012 as reported by the pipeline operator were 0 bbls, as the pipeline was down for all of November 2012. December 2012 pipeline and export facilities losses have not yet been reported by the pipeline operator. Pipeline and export facility losses as reported by the pipeline operator from the beginning of the year to end of November 2012 are approximately 13.6% of total crude deliveries during this eleven month period.
Wade Cherwayko, CEO of Mart Resources stated: "Mart and its partners are pleased and encouraged with the initial flow test results from the UMU-10 well, which demonstrate that the exceptional reservoir of the Umusadege field extends further than previously assigned. We are looking forward to receiving results from tests of the remaining perforated sands in the coming weeks. We are also happy to report normalized operations for the AGIP pipeline starting in January 2013."

Except where expressly stated otherwise, all production figures set out in this press release, including bopd, reflect gross Umusadege field production rather than production attributable to Mart. Mart's share of total gross production before taxes and royalties from the Umusadege field fluctuates between 82.5% (before capital cost recovery) and 50% (after capital cost recovery).
Forward Looking Statements and Risks
Certain statements contained in this press release constitute "forward-looking statements" as such term is used in applicable Canadian and US securities laws. Any statements that express or involve discussions with respect to predictions, expectations, beliefs, plans, projections, objectives, assumptions or future events or are not statements of historical fact and should be viewed as "forward-looking statements".

There is no assurance that reserves will be assigned to such hydrocarbon bearing sands. In addition, there is no assurance that there will not be future disruptions of the AGIP pipeline or that future repairs will not be required. Any future disruptions will materially and adversely affect the ability of the Company to transport, deliver and sell its crude oil production from the Umusadege field. Statements (express or implied) concerning the allocation of export and pipeline capacity to the Umusadege field from their party pipeline owners, should also be viewed as forward looking statements.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.

In the rush to compete in the digital age, a successful digital transformation is essential, but many organizations are setting themselves up for failure. There’s a common misconception that the process is just about technology, but it’s not. It’s about your business. It shouldn’t be treated as an isolated IT project; it should be driven by business needs with the committed involvement of a range of stakeholders.
