DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - Mar 26, 2014) - Brinx Resources Ltd. (OTCQB: BNXR) ("Brinx Resources" or "Brinx" or the "Company") announced today that it received notice from the Oklahoma-2013 project operator that drilling and testing of the 5th well of the Phase-1 exploration program has been completed. Subsequently, it was determined that the well did not encounter commercial quantities of oil or gas. As a result, well #5 will be plugged and abandoned.
As with previously exploration wells in Phase-1 of this ongoing program, the OK-13-5 exploration well target multiple potential hydrocarbon pay zones thought to be productive in the area. The OK-13-5 well reached a total depth of 7,759 feet on March 19, 2014. Testing conducted on the well, included mud logging with full spectrum chromatography and a complete suite of open hole logs. Finally, a well site geologist with over 30 years of experience was examined all drill cuttings from 4,300' to total depth. Based upon the total evaluation of all geological data and electric log analysis, the project operator recommends the OK-13-5 well be plugged and abandoned.
The Oklahoma-2013 project is a multi-phase multi-well exploration drill program currently being conducted by Brinx Resources and it partners. Phase-1 of the Oklahoma-2013 drill program consists of eight (8) wells targeting the first selections from at least 34 high-graded prospects generated by the partnership's proprietary 3D seismic database that covers the entire 83,043 acres or 130 square miles project area. Of the five wells drilled to date at the Oklahoma-2013, one well is currently in production with four wells plugged and abandoned. Drilling at the multi-phase Oklahoma-2013 project is expected to continue through 2014.
