Octagon 88 Resources Provides Investors With A Summary Of The Final Schlumberger Elkton Erosional Edge Economic Simulation Report

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Octagon 88 Resources Inc., (OCTX) is pleased to release a summary of Schlumberger's dynamic simulation results established from core sample results taken from the Elkton Erosional Edge. Through Schlumberger's validations Octagon 88 has confirmed the project in the Peace River area and the anticipated recovery rates for staged development of the first project.

First Project : Elkton Erosional Edge

  • Eight-hundred plus (800+) million barrels PIIP (Third-Party Estimate)

Schlumberger Results

  • Primary recovery (cold flow) 8% to 14 %
  • Infill drilling followed by subsequent pressure maintenance with an additional 8% recovery rate for a cumulative (200+) million plus recoverable barrels
  • Followed later by Enhanced Oil Recovery (EOR) exploitation targeting an additional 10% to 20% recovery using proven EOR technologies

The successful third party validations of the core drilling program with the primary production and infill drilling development possibilities substantially advances the project to the first production wells, targeting initial oil sales to commence in the first quarter of 2014 from the Elkton Erosional Edge Project. A Plan of Development (POD) targeting thirty-thousand plus (30,000+) barrels a day from the Elkton has been received from the Technical Team and an Executive Summary of the POD is being prepared for release in the Company's filings in the near term.

Octagon 88 Resource's management is very pleased with both the operations team of CEC North Star Ltd. and the professional industry advisors they have assembled.

The Executive Summary of the POD will provide the essentials of the project development plans for the Elkton Erosional Edge and will additionally include further information on the Debolt and Blue Sky Gething development plans.

Octagon 88 Resources

In 2012 / 2013 Octagon 88 Resources, Inc. acquired substantial light and conventional heavy oil assets in Northern Alberta. The acquired projects have been substantially de-risked which leads the company to emerge as a development stage oil and gas company. The company's intention is to grow shareholder value through mergers and acquisitions opportunities available to the company.

The current program schedule entails working with the operator of these properties to bring on production and cash flow through the company's direct working interests, and indirect investments spread throughout the projects.
