Heartland Completes and Successfully Pressure Tests 4 Mile Pipeline

Heartland Oil and Gas Corp. (OTCBB: HTOG) (FWB: HOCA) has successfully conducted pressure testing on its new 4 mile pipeline in Kansas, signaling the completion of that pipeline. Work was then immediately commenced to install the flow lines to each of the 12 new wells to be connected in order to begin the sale of the coalbed methane being generated by those wells.

With this successful testing and anticipated connection of 12 wells, Heartland expects to double the coalbed methane production from this field in Southeast Kansas. In addition, vast additional acreage will be open for further development and drilling along the 4 miles to be accessed by the pipeline.

"We put the necessary pressure into the pipeline and found no leaks along its entire length," reports Augie Soto, COO of Aztec Well Services, Heartland's prime contractor on the work. "The four road crossings and 2 creek crossings were our greatest concern and they held without any problems. The 8 inch main is tied into the 12 inch main and the pipeline is secure all the way to the sales meter. We will begin installation of the 4 inch flow lines without delay and have scheduled the contractor to fracture the wells so they are ready for production as soon as we can connect them."
