North American Oil and Gas Corporation (OTCBB:NAMG) today announced that it has completed initial production testing at its 77-20 well. The well is located in NAMG’s Tejon Extension prospect in the San Joaquin Basin of California, USA.
The well was drilled to a total depth of 7,550 feet, a full suite of electric logs were run, and the company and its partner East West Petroleum set 5 1/2 inch casing.
NAMG continues to test zones of interest in the well. The Company has perforated a 60 foot interval in the Olcese sand and had an immediate blow of gas. The well was shut in for pressure build up and swabbing operations commenced the next day. The swabbing results indicated some light oil, a fluid emulsion, and water. NAMG continues to test the well to get measured rates of oil production.
NAMG is targeting known producing sands that are analogous to the nearby Tejon and North Fields that have produced a combined 58 million barrels of oil and 252 billion cubic feet of gas from the primary zones of interest, attesting to the presence of a proven petroleum system1. The Tejon Field has produced some 34 million barrels oil and 19 billion cubic feet of gas, mostly from JV and Olcese sands. The North Tejon Field has produced some 24 million barrels oil and 233 billion cubic feet of gas, mostly from the Vedder and JV sands1. The oil gravity is 32-35o API.
North American Oil and Gas holds a 75% participation interest in the Tejon Extension prospect and will operate the well. Avere Energy Corp., a 100%-owned subsidiary of East West Petroleum Corp., holds the remaining 25% interest.
