discovery at an exploratory project in the
Prophet River prospect in the Peace River
region of northeastern British Columbia in
Canada, reports Vancouver-based partner

River d-60-E/94-G-15 was perforated in
Mississippian and yielded gas at an initial
unstabilized rate of up to 7.94 million cu.
ft. per day. Pressure tests are in progress to
determine the size of the find, which could
encompass wells drilled five to 24 kilometers
away. In addition, the well encountered
23 meters of prospective pay in the
Triassic Halfway. The Prophet River project
covers some 21 sections.
