Gold Point Energy Announces Unconventional Gas Exploration Program in Europe
VANCOUVER, Canada, Aug. 21, 2008 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Gold Point Energy Corp. (TSX-V:GPE) (Frankfurt:A0HGQ1) (the "Company" or "GPE") reported today that it has engaged LO&G Consultants GmbH to perform a study of several Central European basins to identify potential for unconventional gas accumulations.
"Central Europe has multiple source and reservoir rocks that have potential for 'unconventional gas resource' plays. Compared with North America, the level of exploration activity is low and acreage is relatively inexpensive. We believe Central Europe represents a good opportunity to apply technology and know-how developed in the U.S. and Canada to new play areas. Due to the high price of Russian gas imports, the price of gas in Central Europe is already in the $10 to $15 per MMBTU range and expected to go higher. Thus, any resource plays that prove to be commercially successful are likely to have significant reserve value. LO&G Consultants have extensive experience in Central European basins, as well as access to a large geologic database with which to perform their work," said Jack S. Steinhauser, President and CEO of Gold Point Energy Corp.
