(Dallas, TX. – October 24, 2011) StockGuru Shines its Spotlight on American Energy Development Corp. (OTCBB: AEDC). The Company announced on October 21, 2011, that it has successfully completed the drilling stage on the Brown #2-12 Well, and has initiated operations to complete the well. The Company closed on October 21, 2011, at $0.85, with a market capitalization of $73.67 million.
AED’s Brown #2-12 well is the first of a planned series of wells on the Dansville prospect, which has been defined from AED’s 12,300 acres of 3-D seismic data on the project. The well is targeting a Niagaran oil reef structure and was drilled using proprietary drilling techniques, which AED believes has resulted in it encountering a 201ft reef structure with good porosity and permeability.
The early data from mud logs along with analysis against analogue wells in the area, including the original well drilled in 1972 into the same structure, leads us to believe that the Brown #2-12 may be capable of producing at a rate of 250 barrels of oil per day, with estimated ultimate recoverable from the reef structure of up to 650,000 barrels of oil.
The completion of Brown # 2-12 has commenced with setting up of the workover rig, in conjunction with cement stage drill out. Once completed, AED will run the geophysical log to measure rock and fluid properties of the formation, and collect data on density, porosity, permeability, oil and water saturation. Perforation will then take place, which is done by lowering a string of shaped charges down to the desired depth and firing them to perforate the casing. The wellbore is then swabbed in order to reduce downhole pressure, and to allow reservoir fluid to flow into the wellbore and toward the surface, allowing AED to begin the process of oil extraction.
With over 12,300 acres of 3-D seismic data, AED has begun planning for its next two wells that will be drilled on the Dansville prospect. Both well sites have been surveyed, bonded and have received the permits required by the State of Michigan for drilling.
Historical records of the Niagaran reef production in Michigan, confirm over 4,200 wells being drilled, targeting reef formations and producing a total of 472 MMBO and 2.8 TCF gas, with development of reef trends driven by Royal Dutch Shell, BP and ExxonMobil. According to a recent USGS report on the basin, the recoverable reserves are in excess of 1.8 billion barrels of oil and 17 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.
Herold Ribsskog, President of American Energy Development Corp., said, “We are very pleased with the preliminary results of AED’s first well, which have exceeded our initial expectations. In the coming days, geoscientists will have analyzed well data, specifically potential quantities and possible, initial production rates. AED is excited to continue the completion and production start-up program in the next few weeks. We believe exciting times lie ahead for our company.”
