Drilling Program Ongoing
The Snake River Project is located in Kay and Noble Counties, Northern Oklahoma approximately 15 miles southwest of Ponca City. AOK previously announced a 10 vertical well program on the project which commenced in December quarter 2011 with the successful development of the ETU#14-5 and 15-4 wells. Both of these wells intersected a 300 foot gross interval in the Mississippi Lime and are now producing oil and gas from the formation. The ETU #17-6 is the 3rd vertical well in the program.
Drilling on the Balder #1-30N Horizontal Well continues on the west side of the project. A further update on this well will be made in the next few days.
A second rig is scheduled to arrive within two weeks to drill two vertical production wells and an additional disposal well on the north side of the river to the east of the East Tonkawa Unit.
