Report: Potential FTTN Asset Appraised as 'Productive Play'

BRADENTON, Fla.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- As fast-rising oil and gas energy company First Titan Corp. (OTCBB: FTTN) looks into acquiring a new asset in West Texas, an industry-specific investment bank this week released a promising report on the rich production potential of the specific area FTTN is exploring.

While surveying the acreage located in Jeff Davis County within the Delaware Basin of West Texas, FTTN found it includes almost 40,000 contiguous acres that are accessible for drill sites, a water well for rig use and fracturing jobs, and partial 3D seismic coverage.

Canaccord Genuity, a global, full-service investment bank focused on growth companies, gives the Delaware Basin high marks for production potential and states in its report that the Delaware Basin is "a complex multi-stacked basin where up to 19 vertically stacked pay zones exist." The report goes on to state that the Delaware Basin is, "among the most potentially productive plays."

The Avalon formation of the Delaware Basin is prominently mentioned in the Canaccord Genuity report for its production potential. Based upon a recently commissioned report completed by NuTech Energy Alliance, a privately-owned comprehensive global oilfield services company, Avalon shale wells drilled on the acreage being targeted by FTTN are projected flow at an initial rate of 2,500 barrels of oil equivalent per day over a 10-day period, with the estimated ultimate recovery calculated at 250 million barrels of oil equivalent.

First Titan Corp. is building a substantial collection of oil and gas properties and is dedicated to the continuing development of energy assets throughout North America alongside companies such as Continental Resources, Inc. (NYS: CLR) , Chesapeake Energy Corp. (NYS: CHK) , SandRidge Energy Inc. (NYS: SD) and Ultra Petroleum Corp. (NYS: UPL) .
