Force Energy Corp. (OTC.BB:FORC) maintains a 50% working interest in County Line Energy Corp. interest in the Hayter Well (10D Hayter 10-8-40-1 W4M) located in Alberta, Canada. The well was spudded in January 2007 and drilled to a total depth. The well logs revealed a gas zone of 4 to 5 meters of thickness in a shallow zone and a heavy oil pay zone of 2 meters of thickness in the target Dina Sand zone. Although the results in the Dina sand were lower than expected and a decision was made to case the well in 2007, should prices rise in the future, the Hayter could produce an economic well.
County Line Energy completed a $650,000 3D seismic program covering nine sections of land in pursuit of a potential multi well heavy oil drilling opportunity. The geological model was based on interpretation from a previous well, which produced 16,000 barrels of heavy oil. The seismic program was designed to determine whether the structure found in this well existed to a larger extent on the subject property. The 3D seismic revealed an extremely large anomaly with similar characteristics. The nature of this large anomaly suggested that a multi well drilling opportunity might exist. Although this well will likely be completed as a producing well the results of the drilling have negated the ultimate potential of the Hayter property.
The current oil price spike started back in February when the rebellion in Libya’s oil fields put a stop to the country’s daily exports of 1.5 million barrels of crude. That has caused oil speculators to push up the price.
The U.S. economy added hundreds of thousands of jobs this year. That means gasoline demand could increase this year as more workers join the daily commute.
The devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan put further pressure on oil prices. Japan is expected to boost oil and natural gas imports while some of its nuclear power plants are offline.
Oil surged above $113 per barrel on weekend following a drop in the dollar and continued jitters about shipments from the world’s major oil suppliers.
Oil stocks are on fire right now. The search for oil is on! The value of oil companies not only increases when they discover the black gold, but also when the price of oil goes up.
