Octagon 88 Resources Announces Final Agat Lab Results of the Successful Elkton Erosional Edge Well

With improved forecasts the Elkton Erosional edge project has been upgraded to the first development project. The recovery rates possible from primary production and more simplified enhanced recovery methods, with the larger volumes and mobility of the oil than was expected to has been demonstrated in these AGAT results.

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 09, 2013

CEC North Star Energy Ltd. providing analysis data from the core samples taken from the Elkton Erosional Edge coring operations carried out in March 2013. The full report on the Elkton Erosional Edge includes previously released information and final results. The final results are based on a drilling depth of 450-465 meters, proving a Net Pay of approximately 16 meters. As for the porosity calculated, the tested core samples ranged from 21% to 30%. The permeability of the Elkton core samples range from 0.001 - 0.34 darcies while the Oil Saturation ranges from 76% to 88% with Oil Gravity resulting in 13.1 to 14.5 (API) at reservoir conditions. The full AGAT report will be filed as an 8k in the company’s filings.

The Elkton AGAT report exceeds the previous findings from the CEC North Star technical team that this Elkton Erosional Edge project has oil and rock properties, which are likely to be developed for primary production followed later by Enhanced Oil Recovery Methods (“EOR”). With improved forecasts the Elkton Erosional edge project has been upgraded to the first development project. The recovery rates possible from primary production and more simplified enhanced recovery methods, with the larger volumes and mobility of the oil than was expected to has been demonstrated in these AGAT results.

These actual numbers are being further validated by Schlumberger byway of dynamic laboratory simulations which will set a complete plan for full commercial development, beginning with licensing two to four initial production testing wells prior, for the 4th quarter 2013.

The Bluesky Gething Project 3D seismic project remains on schedule to be concluded in 3 to 4 weeks. The Company is very pleased with both the Blue Sky project and the Elkton Erosional Edge project being officially confirmed by third parties as having established primary production and enhanced recovery possibilities. This is a major economic benefit to the Company moving forward on its development stage and additionally shortens the timeline to production.

Octagon 88 Resources
In 2012 / 2013 Octagon-88, Inc. acquired substantial light and conventional heavy oil assets in Northern Alberta. The acquired projects have been substantially de-risked which leads the company to emerge as a development stage oil and gas company as of January 22, 2013. The company’s intention is to grow shareholder value through mergers and acquisitions opportunities available to the company.

The current program schedule entails working with the operator of these properties to bring on production and cash flow through the company’s direct working interests, and indirect investments spread throughout the projects.

CEC North Star
CEC North Star Energy Ltd is a non-public Calgary based Energy Corporation with a substantial oilsands lease holding in the Peace River block of north western Alberta Canada.

CEC North Star has acquired sixty-one (67) sections respectively 39,040 acres of leaseholds with a prospective resource of 873 MM bbl (Best Estimate) PIIP in the Elkton Debolt formations based on a 25 section independent analysis. The same independent petroleum engineering firm conducted a feasibility study 139 Mil (NPV @ 10% fully risked) based on a typical four sections development of the Elkton/Debolt. In addition the property is prospective for Bluesky/Gething oil sands formations which may lead to early primary production development similar to other projects in the Peace River Block offering significant production potential.

CEC North Star has entered into joint venture on adjoining properties consisting of 23 sections or 14,720 acres which may increase PIIP (Petroleum Initially in Place) to in excess of three (3) billion barrels.        

CEC North Star goals of ultimately 200,000 bbl/d of bitumen from these lands and objectives are to create value by developing these oilsands properties using scalable project development targeting multiple 5-10,000 bbl/d facilities with stakeholder involvement at every stage – Environment, Occupational Health and Safety are of paramount concern. Use of known technologies while remaining flexible to adopt new processes to maximize recovery of oil in place while reducing operating costs and a relatively quick schedule and lower capital costs compared to other oilsand projects resulting in maximum return on capital invested and quicker shareholder returns.
