The MT19-1 is drilled to 2,035' and completed in the Mississippi Limestone formation from 1932'-1938'. The shut in pressure was 650 lbs. The initial flow rate was 1,400 mcfd. The casing pressure was 430 lbs. The tubing pressure was 190 lbs. The MT19-1 stabilized at a rate of 840 mcfd with 25" of differential pressure and 500 lbs casing pressure. Further testing will determine the rate at which the well will be produced.

This press release may include forward-looking statements. These statements are based on the Company's current expectations as to future events. However, the forward-looking events and circumstances discussed in this press release might not occur, and actual results could differ materially from those anticipated or implied in the forward-looking statements. For example, the completion of the proposed transaction between Georgia and Wharton is subject to a number of conditions that must be met or waived, and accordingly there can be no guarantee that the transaction will successfully complete. In general, the business of Wharton is subject to a number of risks typical of oil and gas exploration and development companies. In addition, estimating reserves involves inherent engineering uncertainties as well as inherent uncertainties about the future fluctuations in the price of oil and gas, which can cause estimates of reserves to be revised upwards or downwards. Other factors affecting forward-looking statements include, among others, the inherent uncertainties associated with oil and gas exploration; the uncertainty respecting Wharton's ability to complete the acquisitions of lease interests, including its acquisition of the St. Martinville Field property; title issue, laws, environmental, judicial, regulatory, political and competitive developments in areas in which Georgia Exploration operates; and technological, mechanical and operational difficulties encountered in connection with Georgia Exploration's activities.
