Marksmen Initiates Shallow Light Oil Drilling Program in Ohio

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - March 4, 2014) -


Marksmen Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MAH) ("Marksmen" or the "Company") has completed its first 3D seismic acquisition program in Ohio and is currently interpreting seismic data processed by two independent consultants in Colorado and Ohio and selecting drill sites.

The 3D seismic survey has outlined numerous shallow Cambrian Knox formation light oil targets.

Based on Marksmen's interpretation of the 3D seismic data, and historic wildcat wells that produced light oil from Marksmen's target Cambrian Knox formation, Marksmen will initially permit the drilling of five (5) vertical oil wells within the 3D seismic area. Marksmen has received an initial AFE which estimates drilling and completion costs to be under $300,000 per well.

As reported by the Ohio Department of Natural Resources Division of Oil and Gas Resources on December 31, 2011, six (6) wells completed in the Cambrian Knox formation, within 3.5 miles of Marksmen's 3 D Survey, have produced more than 40,000 barrels of oil each, with an average of more than 90,000 barrels of oil, and a maximum of more than 178,000 barrels of oil.

Marksmen and its joint venture operator are currently negotiating with drilling contractors and drilling is expected to commence in a few weeks.

The Company is continuing with its lease acquisition program in Ohio.
