Bird River Resources Announces Update on Drilling Program

Bird River Resources Announces Update on Drilling Program   

Calgary, Alberta (FSCwire) - Bird River Resources Inc. (CSE: BDR) is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary High Point Oil Inc. (“High Point”) has had significant success in its 2018 drilling program to date.


High Point has drilled three oil wells which are: well 11-36, well 5-23 and well 4-5.  The three wells are located in the Huxley area of central Alberta.  All wells have been drilled into the Nisku formation and were a Joint Venture (previously announced) with DEL Canada Partnership.  A fourth well in the program is currently being licensed with the Alberta Department of Energy. 


The 11-36 well swabbed 125 barrels of clean light oil in 8 hours with a stabilized wellbore fluid level. The well has been equipped and is expected to begin production on August 1, 2018 with initial production rates being controlled at 200 to 250 barrels of oil per day.   


The 5-23 well has been drilled and cased with completion activities expected to commence the first week of August.


The 4-5 well has been completed but experienced formation damage and low reservoir pressures indicating the likely need to implement pressure maintenance in order to produce oil.  As a result, equipping and producing this well has been delayed until the other two wells have been completed.


Ty Pfeifer, President of High Point commented, “We are very pleased with our drilling progress to date. Results have validated our 3D seismic modeling and we have learned and applied the valuable information gained from our ongoing drilling program”.
