BOWLING GREEN, KY -- (Marketwire) -- 01/28/13 -- Allied Energy, Inc. ("Company") (PINKSHEETS: AGGI) today announced updates relating to its operations.
Yakesh 2-H Prospect: During December 2012, Allied Operating Texas, LLC, ("AOT"), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Allied Energy, Inc., executed a drilling contract with Independent Drilling, LLC, Kilgore, TX and commenced spudding of the Yakesh 2-H horizontal well, located in Milam County, TX.
As of January 16, 2013, total vertical depth had been reached at 6,300 feet, and after consultation and review of drilling logs, a decision was made to drill the lateral (horizontal) section through the upper Buda formation. It is anticipated that the drilling phase of the lateral section will be completed by early February 2013.
The costs of developing the Yakesh 2-H prospect are funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the Yakesh 2-H prospect. The Company holds a 0.1% working interest (0.075% net revenue interest), inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
Non-Commercial Well Update:
B. Bryant #1 Prospect: In early December 2012, the B. Bryant #1 well, located in Wood County, TX, was drilled to the Rodessa and Pettit formations at a total depth of approximately 10,100 feet.
After reaching total depth, the well was logged and Company engineers met with log analysts from Schlumberger to review the open-hole logs and make recommendations for the completion of the well.
After extensive evaluation by Schlumberger Open Hole Logging experts, Company geologists, and Allied Energy Inc.'s VP of Operations, the operational decision was made to Plug and Abandon (P&A) the well. It was determined that while the well was capable of producing on a very limited basis, it was not capable of producing in quantities necessary to cover the costs of completing the well.
The drilling of the B. Bryant #1 well was funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the B. Bryant #1 prospect. The Company holds a 0.05037% working interest (0.03777% net revenue interest), inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
Ragsdale #2 Well: In November 2012, the Ragsdale #2 well, located in Cherokee County, TX, was drilled to the Pettit formation at a total depth of approximately 10,500'.
Based on well logs run by Schlumberger, the Company believes that there are hydrocarbons present and approximately 70' of pay. A decision was made to complete the well, the operations of which are currently ongoing.
The drilling and completion of the Ragsdale #2 well was funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the Ragsdale #2 prospect. The Company holds a 0.25% working interest (0.1875% net revenue interest), inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
E. Cantrell #1: During August 2012, the E. Cantrell #1 well, located in Wood County, TX, was drilled to the Travis Peak formation at a total depth of approximately 10,709 ft.
After reaching total depth, the well was logged and Company engineers met with log analysts from Schlumberger and consulting geologists to review the open-hole logs and make recommendations for the completion of the well.
After evaluation by Schlumberger and Company personnel, the operational decision was made to complete the well in the Rodessa formation.
The well is presently in initial stages of production testing.
The drilling and completion of the E. Cantrell #1 well was funded by two general partnerships sponsored by the Company. The partnerships hold a majority working interest in the E. Cantrell #1 prospect. The Company holds a 0.05037% working interest (0.03777% net revenue interest), inclusive of its interests in the general partnerships.
Yakesch Unit: In August 2012, the Company acquired a 100% working interest (78-80% net revenue interest) in the 130.49-acre Yakesch Unit in Milam County, TX. The lease includes one vertical well, which is in the process of being re-completed and is not producing hydrocarbons. The lease is being further developed with the drilling of the Yakesh 2-H horizontal well primarily by two partnerships sponsored by the Company. Operations management believes that there is the potential for the drilling of one additional vertical well on the Unit.
WT Pearson Lease: In October 2012, the Company acquired the WT Pearson Lease in Milam County, TX. The lease is comprised of approximately 200 net acres, and includes 36 existing wellbores that were drilled to the Navarro sands. A few of these wells are producing very small amounts of oil. The Company is in the process of checking each of these wellbores to attempt to determine their capabilities, if any.
The wells had combined total production for the fourth quarter of 2012 of approximately 160 barrels of oil. To date, work performed on the lease by the Company has been limited to deferred maintenance and basic remedial operations.
The Company owns an 87.5% working interest (65.625% net revenue interest) in the lease. The development plan for the lease includes the strategic deepening of certain of the wells along with the initiation of a "pressure maintenance" program. It is estimated that there may be up to 12 additional prospective well locations on the lease.
Clark Lease, Milam County, TX: In October 2012, the Company acquired a 45% working interest, (33.75% net revenue interest) in the Clark Lease, and, in order to test the Pecan Gap formation, participated with an industry partner in the drilling of the Clark #1 well to a depth of 2,000'. The well is currently being tested for completion. The lease is comprised of approximately 198 net acres, and is contiguous with the Company's 200-acre WT Pearson lease. It is estimated that up to 20 additional drilling locations may be available on the lease.
Pearson River Bottom Ranch Lease - Milam County, TX: In October 2012, the Company acquired a 45% working interest, (33.75% net revenue interest), in the Pearson River Bottom Ranch Lease, which consists of approximately 5 net acres. In order to test the Pecan Gap formation, the Company has participated with an industry partner in the drilling of the Pearson C1 well to a depth of 1,800'. The well is currently being tested for completion. The lease is contiguous with the Company's 200-acre WT Pearson lease.
High Island Block 19S Prospect: In October 2012, the Company entered into an agreement to participate with industry partners in the re-entry and reclamation of an orphan well in Jefferson County, TX. Allied's share of the first well is a 3.0% working interest (2.25% net revenue interest). The work on the first well is planned for the first quarter of 2013. The Company's participation also includes the first right to participate in any future wells on the entire 320-acre lease at up to a 10% working interest (7.5% net revenue interest).
North Constitution "Hooks" Prospect: In October 2012, the Company entered into an agreement to participate with industry partners in the drilling of a 14,500' well in Jefferson County, TX. The Company is participating with a 3.25% working interest, (2.4375% net revenue interest). Plans are to spud the well during the first quarter of 2013.
J.T. Fields-Berry Lease: In November 2012, the Company acquired an 87.5% working interest (65.625% net revenue interest) in the J.T. Fields-Berry Lease in Caldwell County, TX. The lease is comprised of approximately 36 net acres and includes 5 existing wellbores that were drilled, (during the 1980's), to a depth of approximately 2,100', to the Austin Chalk/Buda formations. One of the wellbores was completed and is currently a marginal oil producer at less than 1/2 BOD. The remaining four wellbores were cased by the previous operator, but have never been completed for production.
The plan for the development of the lease is to drill a new well, obtain fresh logs to determine the precise depth of any oil bearing formation(s), and then to treat and complete the new well plus the four existing (drilled but not completed) wells. In addition to the existing wells, there is an active saltwater disposal well located on the lease. It is calculated that there could be up to 7 additional prospective well locations on the lease.
Opal Gas Unit: In December 2012, the Company acquired a 100% working interest (74%-80% net revenue interest) in the Opal Gas Unit. The leases that comprise the Unit have one vertical well that produced 1 barrel of oil and 1703 MCF of natural gas in December 2012. The Unit is comprised of approximately 703.6 net acres, and is contiguous to the Company's 186-acre "Ragsdale" lease. It is estimated that the lease could accommodate up to 6 additional vertical wells, or 2 horizontal wells.
Rogers County, Oklahoma: The Company continues to evaluate all of the interests of the general partnerships for which the Company acts as managing general partner in Rogers County, OK. The Company is conducting a review of production and expense records to determine the financial condition of the partnerships and the status of each of the partnerships' wells, (a large majority of which may be non-commercial). Based upon the findings of the review, we expect to make specific recommendations either to 1) "shut-in" wells that might benefit by a future rebound in the market prices of gas, 2) plug and abandon wells deemed to be non-commercial, or 3) continue to operate wells that are profitable or may be candidates for enhancement procedures or re-engineering to improve production.
