The Directors and management of Strata-X Energy Ltd. announce that after pumping approximately 25,000 pounds of sand in the first of seven stages of stimulation on the Burkett 5-34HOR well on the Vail Oil Project, the completion screened out. As a consequence, the well bore will need to be cleaned out before the multi-stage stimulation can continue. A workover rig will be mobilized to the site to commence a cleanout operation of the well. The Company anticipates that the completion stimulation can resume as early as the middle of December 2013.
Halliburton, which was engaged to conduct the completion stimulation on the Burkett 5-34 HOR well, has been released and is moving off location. The stimulation program cannot proceed until the bore is cleared by the workover rig and the data from the first stimulation stage is integrated into a new completion model to determine an optimal stimulation program.
