Target Energy Provides Update on Its Fairway Project in West Texas

WEST PERTH, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- US-focused oil and gas producer Target Energy Limited ("Target") (OTCQX: TEXQY) (ASX: TEX) is pleased to provide an operations update on its Fairway Project in West Texas .

  • The Homar #1 well (Target has a 60% Working Interest) is presently drilling ahead at 2,710 m (8,890 ft). Total Depth of the well is planned at 3,230 m (10,600 ft) and will test the Wolfberry section. Drilling operations commenced on 5 May 2014, with the well expected to reach its Total Depth within the week.

  • Following the conclusion of drilling at Homar #1, the drill rig will immediately move to the Ballarat lease, approximately 5 kms east of the Sydney lease. The Ballarat 185 #1 well will be drilled to a planned Total Depth of 3,350 m (11,000 ft) and will test Fusselman and Wolfberry targets. Target has a 60% Working Interest in the Ballarat lease.

  • At BOA 12 #3 (Target has a 60% Working Interest), oil production is steadily building with an average of 101 BOPD plus 152 BW over the last three days. This follows a 4-stage fracture stimulation program of the Wolfberry section that was undertaken on 2 May 2014. The well is now on pump with approximately 52% of the load water (8,090 barrels) recovered.

  • At BOA North #4, the Fusselman Carbonate recovered oil on test and the well has been put on pump. Initial oil production was 25 BOPD in the first four days. Additional stimulation is being planned. Target has a 60% Working Interest in the lease.

  • At Wagga Wagga #2 (Target has a 45% Working Interest), testing of up to three zones in the Devonian and Fusselman sections is underway and also has extensive potential pay identified in the Wolfberry section.

Managing Director, Laurence Roe commented on the operations: "We remain very active. BOA 12 #3 is flowing back after the Wolfberry frac with an increasing oil rate up to 103 BOPD. We have also successfully tested oil in the Fusselman at BOA North #4 and we are looking at ways to further increase the rate.

"Wagga Wagga #2 looks good in the Wolfberry and also has some interesting zones deeper down in the Fusselman and Devonian sections -- we are in the process of testing those deeper zones now.

"Beyond the testing programs, Homar #1 is drilling ahead with good shows and is just a few days from reaching Total Depth. Following that we will move the rig to the Ballarat lease to drill a Wolfberry & Fusselman test."

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.
