ALBUQUERQUE, NM -- (Marketwired) -- 05/07/13 -- Homeland Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: HMLA), an emerging oil and gas exploration and production company, is pleased to announce that they, in conjunction with their working interest partners, are scheduled to begin drilling the first prospect well at the multi-well Liberty Ridge Project located in Oklahoma.
Most recently, Homeland announced that Phase-1 of the Liberty Ridge drill program is expected to consist of eight high-graded oil and gas prospects selected from at least 34 prospects identified to date at Liberty Ridge. The spud date for the first well in Phase-1 is now set for the week beginning May 13, 2013 of this year.
"We are very excited that the Liberty Ridge oil and gas exploration and development project finally has a confirmed drilling start date," said Armando Garcia, President of Homeland Resources. "Homeland and its partners have invested a significant amount of time, money and effort to advance the Liberty Ridge project to this stage. Now, we feel that we are poised to realize the potential gains from all that hard work during, what we expect will be, an extremely busy period of drilling."
At present, each individual prospect represents a future potential drill site. After a period of evaluation, each successful and economically viable well could potentially warrant one or more additional development wells to fully exploit the prospect. It is expected that all eight of the prospects included in Phase-1 will be drilled prior to determining to what extent additional development wells will be considered.
The drilling dates for the remaining seven prospects in Phase-1 will be announced when confirmed. Drilling for Phase-1 is expected to potentially take several months, after which point Homeland and their partners will outline details for Phase-2. Drilling at Liberty Ridge for Homeland and their partners is expected to take place from 2013 through 2014.
The exploration and development objectives at Liberty Ridge consist of drilling potential new multi-zone wells targeting 2nd Wilcox sand, 1st Wilcox sand, Trenton dolomite, Simpson dolomite, Viola limestone, Hunton limestone, Bartlesville sand and Redfork sand oilfields.
