Biloxi Marsh Lands Corporation Provides Post Hurricane Gustav and Hurricane Ike Production Update
Biloxi Marsh Lands Corporation (PINK SHEETS:BLMC) provides the following update of its production:
BLMC's Lessee WellsOn August 29th and 30th production from 11 wells operated by the Company's Lessee's The Meridian Resource and Exploration, LLC (TMR) and Manti Jamba, Ltd. (MANTI) were shut-in as Hurricane Gustav approached the area. After the passage of hurricanes Gustav and Ike, there is no reported damage to any of the wells and only minor damage reported by TMR to their production facilities. TMR advises that they commenced repairs to their production facilities today. After the completion of repairs to the various production facilities, the TMR wells are scheduled to begin to be placed back on production in the next three to five days. The wells operated by Manti resumed producing natural gas on September 7th.
B&L Exploration, LLC Wells
The two wells operated by Manti in which B&L Exploration, LLC owns a working interest are SL 18955 #1 (Lost Pearl) and SL 18957 #1 (Redfish Bend). These two wells returned to producing natural gas on September 6th and September 9th respectively.
The two new discovery wells SL 19064 #1 (False Mouth Bay) and the Lake Eugenie Land & Development #1 (South Boudreau Bay), in which B&L Exploration, LLC owns a working interest, are operated by Gulf Production, Inc. These two wells have not been placed on production and are awaiting the completion of pipelines necessary to produce natural gas from these wells. Construction crews in the field prior to Hurricane Gustav were forced to demobilize as Hurricane Gustav approached the area. The approach of Hurricane Ike prevented a re-mobilization until Hurricane Ike passed. We are advised that construction crews are re-mobilizing with construction scheduled to commence on September 18th. We are advised that the pipeline necessary to place SL 19064 #1 on production should be completed in three to four weeks and the pipeline necessary to place the Lake Eugenie Land & Development #1 well on production will be complete in four to five weeks. Construction of both pipelines is scheduled to take place contemporaneously. Each well should be placed on production shortly after the completion of the pipeline necessary for its production.
