Jericho Oil Provides STACK Operational Update

TULSA, Okla., and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Sept. 27, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Jericho Oil Corporation (“Jericho”) (TSX-V: JCO; OTC PINK: JROOF) is pleased to provide an update regarding its ongoing participation in its Oklahoma STACK Joint Venture (“STACK JV”).  The Company’s 2018 development plan within the STACK continues to focus on the delineation and de-risking of its acreage position for the Meramec and Osage formations.  Currently, the STACK JV now has an interest in four Osage formation wells and two Meramec formation wells.  An update is provided below:

  • 47.5% Working Interest
  • Producing: 220 Gross BOE per day (40% oil; 227 days since first oil production)

-  Swordspear 15-23N-10W #1H (Osage)

The STACK JV’s first two horizontal producing wells have given the Company great confidence to push ahead with further development targeting the Meramec and Osage formations across its acreage position.  As previously announced, the STACK JV has begun drilling operations on a second Meramec formation well (the Valkyrie) on its western flank and on a second Osage formation well (the Trebuchet) on its northern most STACK acreage.  The STACK JV holds a significant working interest in each.  Moreover, the Company is also participating in two additional Osage formations wells with experienced, surrounding marque operators which will prove immensely valuable information through the collection of best practices gleaned from drilling, completion and production data of those nearby wells. 

Brian Williamson, CEO of Jericho Oil, stated “The Company continues to deliver on its two-pronged strategy of delineating and de-risking our STACK acreage for the Meramec and Osage formations,” adding, “our first Meramec and Osage formation wells have given our team the added knowledge and confidence in our world-class acreage position.  We are excited to further develop our assets and hope our shareholders will realize the tremendous value inherent throughout the development process.  Each well drilled has the potential to generate significant returns for our Company and with over 150 gross un-risked drillable locations there is significant net asset value within our STACK position.”
