SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 28, 2014) - Worthington Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: WGAS) ("Worthington" or the "Company"), an energy company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and drilling of oil and natural gas properties, takes this opportunity to provide additional information on the existing assets currently in place on the Barr lease acquired from American Dynamic Resources, Inc. ("ADR").
Worthington Energy, Inc. Chairman and CEO, Mr. Charles F. Volk, stated, "Worthington acquired a fully operational, working oil field including equipment, facilities and infrastructure, plus the proven intellectual property which will allow us to extract the heavy oil that was previously considered economically unviable to produce."
"There are 33 wells currently drilled on only 20 of the 320 available acres on the lease," stated Worthington Energy President and COO, Mr. Charlie Adams. "Each well already has an EcoLift Air Lift system in place.
"Our plan is to initially restart the 12 wells which produced and sold 193 barrels of oil in 2013 utilizing ADR's EOR (enhanced oil recovery) technology. We will subsequently restart the remaining wells, which have to date produced, in total, 14,779 of the more than 500,000 barrels of oil on the lease as validated by our reserve report," continued Mr. Adams.
"The Barr lease has been the technology testing and proving ground for ADR's patent pending EOR technologies including the EcoLift Air Lift system and the Levia Thermal Enhancement process. These technologies were developed specifically for the heavy and medium gravity oil deposits contained in our Southeast Kansas leases," Mr. Adams concluded.
Worthington engages in the acquisition, exploration, development and drilling of oil and natural gas properties. Worthington is an energy turnaround company whose strategy is to acquire cash flow producing properties with proved and probable reserves, develop the fields by reworking existing wells and drilling new wells. Worthington was founded in 2004 and is based in San Francisco, CA.
