Strategic Oil & Gas announce that the expansion and reconfiguration of the Company's oil battery and gas processing plant at Steen River (the "9-17 battery") is complete. Production being processed through the 9-17 battery was shut in since construction began on October 16, 2013 and will be brought back on production over the next couple of days.
The completion of the project will eliminate fluid handling constraints, reduce operating expenses and accommodate future growth in light oil production at Steen River. The expansion has increased the oil processing capacity at Steen River to 8,500 BOPD. The 9-17 battery expansion is a key aspect of Strategic's growth strategy.
