(TSXV:MAH) (OTCQB:MKSEF) (“Marksmen” or the “Company”) and Its wholly owned subsidiary, Marksmen Energy USA, Inc. are pleased to announce the following update on its Leaman 1-H Clinton Sandstone Horizontal well in Hocking County, Ohio. The well is being drilled in conjunction with our working interest partners and is operated by Hocking Hill Energy (“HHE”).
Drilling of this well has been slower than expected due to very inclement weather, mechanical issues and slower than expected drilling rates. To date we have drilled 1,300 feet of the planned 3,000 feet lateral leg.
Marksmen is pleased that we have encountered hydrocarbons in the Clinton Sandstone formation with oil and gas shows that are in-line with our engineering and geological expectations.
