CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Sept. 20, 2013) – Canadian Quantum Energy Corporation (“Canadian Quantum” or the “Company”) (TSX VENTURE:CQM) announces the following update on the Company’s ALEX 102/16-11-56-27W4 well (“102/16-11 Well”).
The 102/16-11 Well was initially drilled directionally to a depth of 1,287 meters in December, 2012 and has been standing after perforating the Detrital zone in February, 2013 with less than commercial results. Canadian Quantum and its partners conducted a completion of the upper zone within the Lower Mannville Group and placed the 102/16-11 Well on production on September 13, 2013. Initial indications are that the 102/16-11 Well will be an oil well producing approximately 25 – 30 bbl oil per day. Canadian Quantum holds a 30% working interest in this well and associated spacing unit. Although initial; productive tests may not be indicative of long term performance and ultimate reserve recovery, Canadian Quantum is pleased to have confirmed light oil production from this zone.
Douglas Brett, President and CEO of Canadian Quantum, states “We are pleased with the initial results obtained from this completion. This confirms oil production from a zone that our team has long maintained would be an excellent candidate for horizontal drilling development utilizing multistage fracturing technology. Our 3D seismic indicates multiple horizontal locations exist on our Alexander Permit.
