CALGARY and SAN ANTONIO — Emerald Bay Energy Inc. has reported on the initial oil production from the Kuhn 3 well. During the first 24 hr, Kuhn 3 produced approximately 120 bbl of oil. Over this period, the Kuhn 3, 4 and A5 wells collectively produced 145 bbl of oil into the sales tanks. In the first 24 hr, production from the Kuhn 3 well was 100% oil with no associated water. We are currently starting to observe a small percentage of water in the samples which are being taken every 6 hr.
As previously reported, the Company anticipated seeing a high fluid volume with an oil cut between 2% and 4% from Kuhn 3, and this may ultimately still be the case. However, due to the unexpected nature of the results to this point, and the impact these production rates potentially mean for the Company, we felt it prudent to provide the initial 24-hr production. The Company will provide further information about the Kuhn 3 production rates as necessary.
The Kuhn 3 well is on the Company’s Wooden Horse project in South Texas where Emerald Bay owns a 50% working interest in the wells and receives the WTI price for the oil produced.
