CALGARY, Alberta, Aug. 26, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Marksmen Energy Inc. (“Marksmen” or the “Company”) (TSXV: MAH) (OTCQB: MKSEF) is pleased to announce the drilling of a well in Pickaway County, Ohio, USA.

Marksmen is pleased to announce that it has completed the drilling of the Davis Holbrook #2 (“DH2”) well in Pickaway County, Ohio. Marksmen is the operator of the well and has a 75% working interest. This well is a direct offset to the Davis Holbrook #1 (“DH1”) well and targeted an isolated 3D seismic high in the same Cambrian Knox remnant. Oil was encountered in high porosity zones in the Cambrian Knox formation and oil flowed to surface. Production casing has been set and cemented and the well is ready for completion. It will be perforated, acidized, and put on production in the next two to three weeks.

As an analog, the DH1 well, Marksmen’s best well, was drilled in June of 2016, with initial production in the 80 barrels of oil per day range, has produced over 65,000 barrels of oil to date, and continues to produce at approximately 25 bbls of oil per day. The results of production from DH1 may not be indicative of results for the DH2 well.

Marksmen is paid directly by the oil refinery based on the monthly average price of West Texas Intermediate (“WTI”) for Pennsylvania Grade Light Oil. The refinery purchases the oil directly at Marksmen’s well locations and there are no added transportation costs.

Archie Nesbitt, President and Chief Executive Officer of Marksmen states “we are very pleased to announce the successful drilling of the DH2 well. It is an offset to DH1, Marksmen’s best well. With the resurgence of WTI to over $65 US per barrel we expect that DH2 will be a positive contributor to Marksmen’s financial performance.

The Company is well positioned through our strong technical management team and contacts in Ohio to embark on new and exciting projects. The Company has recently received a number of interesting proposals that are in the process of being evaluated and prioritized.”
