ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwired) -- 04/29/13 -- Homeland Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: HMLA), an emerging oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to outline Phase-1 of the proposed drilling program at the Liberty Ridge Project located in Southern Oklahoma.
Homeland and its partners have isolated an initial eight prospects that will represent Phase-1 of the Liberty Ridge drilling program. These prospects are the first of many new wells planned to be drilled at the project over the next several months. All eight prospects in Phase-1 have been sufficiently analyzed and determined to be high-grade targets. The initial drilling date for the first well in Phase-1 is expected to be announced within the next 7 - 10 days. Drilling is expected to continue throughout all of 2013.
At the completion of the Phase-1 drilling, and once the economic viability of the Phase-1 wells have been evaluated, Homeland and its partners intend to determine to what extent additional development wells could be required to fully exploit any new oil and gas discoveries. This could potentially increase the total number of wells drilled at Phase-1 prospects.
"The planned Phase-1 of the Liberty Ridge drill program consists of new wells targeting eight high graded prospects selected from the previously announced and confirmed 34 prospects identified at the project so far," says Armando Garcia, President of Homeland Resources. "These first eight prospects were determined utilizing the project's proprietary 3D seismic database that covers the entire 83,043 acres or 130 square miles that make up the Liberty Ridge area. We look forward to starting the drilling operations at the first target location very soon."
The drilling objectives at the Liberty Ridge Project are to potentially target new oil fields in known productive oil and gas zones in the area such as the 2nd Wilcox sand, 1st Wilcox sand, Trenton dolomite, Simpson dolomite, Viola limestone, Hunton limestone, Bartlesville sand and Redfork sand.
Historically, oilfields in the project area have produced from 1,000,000 to 4,000,000 million barrels of oil from small structural closures of approximately 39 acres up to 225 acres. Six 2nd Wilcox oilfields in the area have produced approximately 13,000,000 barrels of oil from a combined area of only about 785 acres. Homeland anticipates that more analogous oilfields will be found at the Liberty Ridge project area based on numerous structural leads shown in the proprietary 3D seismic data. In addition to locating and developing new productive structures from the sands, dolomites and limestones mentioned above, it is also believed that deeper productive structures will be found in the Tulip Creek sand, McLish sand, Oil Creek sand, Joins sands and Arbuckle limestone.
