Road Construction and Drill Site Preparation Underway on Holloman's PEL 112

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwired - May 28, 2013) - Holloman Energy Corporation (OTCQB: HENC) ("Holloman") reports that construction of access roads and drill site preparation on Petroleum Exploration License ("PEL") 112 began May 20, 2013. Regulatory consent for road building was granted in advance of the "Wolfman #1" drilling application, which awaits its "Fit for Purpose" rig assessment. A Cultural Heritage Inspection was completed on May 22, 2013 and the Wolfman #1 drilling project was approved by Native Title Holders. 

Approximately 18 kilometers (11 miles) of access road will be constructed to connect the current road network to PEL 112's Wolfman #1 drilling site. The terrain over which the roads will be built is normal dunefield country typical of the area. The road contractor will also set the surface conductor at the drill site in preparation of immediate drilling upon rig-up. Holloman expects construction of access roads and drill site preparation will require approximately three weeks. 

As a result of its lower interpreted risk, the Wolfman drilling prospect was selected over the "Wolverine" prospect during final seismic analysis. The Wolfman #1 exploration well will be drilled vertically 1,720 meters (5,600 feet) and is expected to take approximately 10 days to reach Total Depth. The well, which targets the Namur Sandstone in a dip-closed structure, is scheduled to spud in early July 2013.
