Wedgemount Announces Five-Fold Increase in Daily Production
Vancouver, BC – April 25, 2023 – Wedgemount Resources Corp. (CSE: WDGY)(OTCQB: WDGRF) (“Wedgemount” or the “Company”), is pleased to announce updated production results from the Company’s Willowbend project and newly acquired Millican light oil project, both located in the Permian Basin of Central Texas (the “Projects”).
As of April 24, 2023, the Company’s total field production had increased to 153 boepd. This represents a five-fold increase since the Willowbend and Millican assets were acquired by Wedgemount’s subsidiary, Wedgemount Texas Corp (“WTC”) during Q1 2023. A total of 16 wells are now producing in the Company’s core Runnels County operating area.
Recent field optimization work carried out during the first week of April 2023 included chemical treatments targeting both well and formation cleanouts in a total of 15 wells. The proprietary treatments developed by WTC’s partner, Petrosaurus Inc. are designed to breakdown paraffins and asphaltenes which inhibit well productivity. The next phase of fieldwork will include well workovers and surface optimizations in early May which the Company anticipates will further boost daily production.
“Early production results from our Runnels County projects continue to track in line with corporate expectations”, commented Mark Vanry, President and CEO of Wedgemount. “In particular, we’re encouraged by the initial results from our newly acquired, low cost Millican purchase. To date WTC has organically grown production at US$2,450 per flowing barrel which is a fraction of where Permian light oil assets are valued in the secondary market.”
All fieldwork continues to be under the direction of Wedgemount’s San Antonio based partner, Petrosaurus Inc.
