Bowling Green, Kentucky (PRWEB) November 29, 2015 -- Encore Energy, Inc. announced today that the Company has made a new Warsaw oil discovery in south central Kentucky. And, has immediate plans to drill eleven (11) drill-sites to prove-up a new field in an area offset to where millions of BO have been produced from the Cincinnati Arch and Illinois Basin. The Company's discovery well reported a ~270 BOPD IP (initial 24-hour production rate) with ~20’ formation, high-oil saturation and porosity approaching 18%. Encore currently has ~15000 acres and prospects targeting several limestone and dolomite oil formations in south central Kentucky. The Company has drilled 25 of 28 wells and is planning a new 30-well program for 2016.
"Encore's team carefully engineered the stimulation treatment, and the initial production test rate from this discovery is well-documented", said Steve Stengell, Encore's President CEO and Chairman. “These initial results far exceed our expectations, projections, historical rates and provide the Company with tremendous confidence in the continued development of a much larger formation trend and more potential new discoveries in the area", added Stengell.
"We are extremely excited about the opportunity to present our future plans and provide field tours to both institutional and high net worth investors in December", said Joseph Hooper, Encore's EVP of Business Development and Director. “These initial production results are more comparable to the Bakken or Eagle Ford, but at only “1/50th” of the per-well cost”, added Hooper.
The US government allows qualified SEC defined Accredited investors to deduct 100% of the IDC Intangible Drilling Cost deductions against all ordinary income with up to 95% of the deduction occurring in year one, at the time the investment is made (i.e. 2015 tax year). This typically results in an immediate tax savings equal to 40 - 53% of his or her total investment. Oil and gas exploration and development involves a high degree of risk and uncertainty. No assurances can be made as it relates to production, reserves, income or timelines.
