CALGARY, Alberta, June 26, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Tanager Energy Inc. (“Tanager” or the “Corporation”) (TSX-V:TAN) (OTC:MNIRF) is pleased to announce that testing of its Ranger A #1 well in Polk County, Texas is now complete. The Ranger A #1 well is the third consecutive successful well drilled in Tanager’s Polk County, Texas joint venture with Paleo Oil Company, LLC. The well was completed at a measured depth of 3,066-3,072 feet and flow tested over a four-day period. The Ranger A #1 tested 2,106 mcf gas per day on a 18/64 choke with stabilized flowing pressure of 1,165 psi and a calculated Absolute Open Flow Rate (AOF) of 22,102 mcf gas per day. The Ranger A #1 well produced no formation water. Tanager will provide an update as to the timing of construction of the gas line when further material information becomes available.
Tom M. Crain, Jr., Interim Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Tanager, stated, “We are extremely pleased by the test results of the Ranger A #1 well, which was drilled over 14 miles away from our Raptor discovery wells in Polk County, Texas. With each well, we have improved our drilling and completion techniques and added to our technical knowledge base on the Yegua formation prospects. The announcement today represents a significant addition to Tanager’s already impressive portfolio of low-cost, highly lucrative Yegua wells in East Texas that further demonstrates the strength of our long-term investment approach and reaffirms Tanager’s commitment to its extensive Yegua drilling program. The Ranger A #1 well when coupled with the Raptor A #1 and Raptor B #1 wells should generate free cash flow to Tanager of over $130,000 USD monthly*.”
