In addition, Eros is pleased to advise that its partner and project operator, Westcore Energy Ltd. (“Westcore”) announced on Friday, June 16, 2017 that it had completed the initial drilling operations on its three well program at Flaxcombe, Saskatchewan. The three well program commenced on June 1, 2017 and drilling was completed on June 14, 2017. The program was designed based on the re-interpretation of a 3D seismic survey that Westcore acquired with the property.
Eros holds a 90% beneficial working interest in the wells until it recovers its initial capital investment totalling $1.6 million and a 50% interest thereafter. Additionally, Eros has the right to participate in the next two programs under the same terms.
Westcore reported that all three wells successfully encountered the Lower Manville Success Sand Formation, with multiple oil bearing sands in each well bore. The Upper Success Sand Formation, which is the primary target, shows total oil bearing formation thicknesses of 5 meters, 9 meters and 11 meters respectively. The Lower Success sand formation, which is a secondary target, shows a total oil bearing formation thickness of 8 meters in each well. Westcore will be reviewing the results with its completions team, with a view to bringing the wells on production in the most efficient manner possible.
