The recent Gull Lake Area, S.W. Saskatchewan Project with vertical wells located at 2-29-13-19W3M, 6-29-13-19 W3M and 1-29-13-19 W3M have all been drilled and two (2) are on production. Both wells are producing medium gravity oil from the Upper Shaunavon formation. Stabilized production rate for the 2-29 is approximately 100 barrels of oil per day with a 2% water cut and is producing under the Good Production Practices (GPP). The 1-29 well has been producing for less than 30 days but is currently producing at a rate in excess of 100 barrels of oil per day with approximately 20% water cut. GPP for the 1-29 well will be applied for in due course. The 6-29 well is cased and is being evaluated. Vital is applying for a license to drill a well at 3-29-13-19W3M. The 3-29 well is planned to commence drilling in November 2018.
