Vinoble, Inc.: Drilling Update on Clovelly South Prospectadmin
Vinoble, Inc. (OTC BB:VNBL.OB – News) announced June 19, 2006 that drilling had begun on the Clovelly South Prospect’s Allain-Lebreton No. 2 well. The Company has been notified by the operator that as of early this morning the well has reached a depth of 11,000 feet.
Daily reports provided from the site indicate normal operations. Although it would be anticipated that drill rates would be lower at greater depths, the Company is pleased that the operator has reached 11,000 feet within 19 days from the spud date.
As previously announced, the original proposed target was to test the “M” Sand at a depth of approximately 13,500 feet with a prospective size of 3.6 million barrels of oil. After further geophysical review of a 3D Seismic survey of the property, the operator and the interest owners of the prospect put forth a further development plan for a deeper horizon. The additional drilling target will test the “P” Sand at approximately 14,200 feet, and if successful, would significantly increase the reserves in the well to an anticipated 11 million barrels of oil for a nominal increase in the dry hole cost. A discovery would lead to the drilling of several development wells on the 1260 acre property where facilities for the production of the well are available.
While global political turmoil continues to keep oil prices near $75 per barrel and some recent analysts’ reports predict that oil could reach as high as $100 a barrel in the near future, the Company is moving forward in its efforts to acquiring additional growth and investment opportunities in this natural resource sector with the intent of providing the Company and its shareholders a much-improved increase in shareholder value. The Company is focused on increasing value by means on continuing acquisitions, development projects and exploration drilling through joint venture networks.
