FieldPoint Petroleum Reports Status Of Drilling Program In Lea County, New Mexico
AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 14, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT:FPP) announced today that it has been informed by its drilling partner, Cimarex Energy Co. (XEC), that preparations have been completed to file the application to permit the drilling of a fourth well in the East Lusk Federal Section 15 of Lea County New Mexico. Both companies are anxious for the Bureau of Land Management to re-open so this process can be completed.
FieldPoint’s Executive Chairman, Roger Bryant, stated, “We have been very pleased with the results of our three existing wells on this property, all drilled with Cimarex as our drilling partner. We are hopeful that the government shut-down will end soon so that drilling can begin. There is still time to drill this well before year end if the roadblocks are removed.
Mr. Bryant added, “I want to let our shareholders know that we greatly appreciate the trust and support you have shown to the board of directors and management, and also let you know that we keep that in mind as we evaluate and pursue multiple opportunities to grow your company.”
As with the existing three wells, FieldPoint will own a 43.75% working interest, Cimarex will own 37.5%, and other partners will own the remaining 18.75% working interest in well #4.
