COMMENTARY

Billabong has a work over rig on the well and operations are expected to commence June 3rd.

Sail & Anchor is shut in for the mobilization phase of the work over rig being used on the Billabong well.

The Coopers well has a work over rig on it for a rod pump installation today.

Flow back operations are expected to commence today on both Matilda Bay 2-15HBK and Matilda Bay 1-15HBK wells. Following the flow back on Matilda Bay 1-15H that well bore will have its sleeves drilled out and a series of tests performed to determine the pressure loss point which will then be repaired and the balance of the frack treatment will be conducted as a plug and perforation technique.

The Bootleg 4-14-15TFH has been drilled to its total depth of 18,967 feet (MD) where a 4.5 inch liner was set with a 30 stage sleeve completion.

The Bootleg 5-14-15TFH well is drilling ahead in the Three Forks lateral at 12,409 feet (MD).

BLUFF #1-11 WELL, HAWK SPRINGS PROJECT, GOSHEN COUNTY, WYOMING

The Bluff #1-11 well is drilling ahead at 1,566 feet towards the 7 inch intermediate casing point at around 7,000 feet.

The Bluff Prospect is an important test of the Permian and Pennsylvanian age sections of the Hawk Springs Project. The prospect is defined by a 3-D seismic grid survey which has demonstrated that it can detect the existence of porous sandstones within this prospective geologic section. The Bluff prospect is a four-way dip closed anticlinal structure. Success at Bluff will provide encouragement to test as many as 18 additional prospects that share similar seismic characteristics with Bluff.
