Cheal South Permit Testing Update

Posted by Denise della Santina on Aug 11, 2014 9:30:00 AM

Here are a few pictures of our Cheal South permit (TAG Oil: 50% interest), during initial testing of the Cheal-G1 well that may prove to be economic.

As announced back in May, in a 50-50 joint venture with East West Petroleum, TAG drilled four shallow exploration wells and one exploration sidetrack well within the Cheal South and Southern Cross areas. While the other wells on this site were plugged and abandoned, the Cheal-G1 well is currently undergoing production testing as a new discovery.
