Spudding of Vision Operating Blackstone Minerals #3 well ("VOBM#3")


Pantheon Resources plc ("Pantheon" or "the Company"), the AIM-quoted oil and gas exploration company with a working interest (of 50%-58%) in several conventional projects in Tyler and Polk Counties, onshore East Texas, is pleased to announce the spudding of the VOBM#3 well:



Spudding of VOBM#3 well, Polk County, onshore East Texas


Pantheon is pleased to announce that the Nabors F12 rig has spudded the VOBM#3 well, in Polk County, East Texas. The VOBM#3 well is the third well to be drilled by the operator in the company's Polk County acreage, and will offset the VOBM#1 and VOBM#2H wells, both of which encountered significant hydrocarbons in the objective horizon. The well will be drilled vertically to target the Eagleford sandstone at a measured depth of approximately 14,250 feet.


Drilling operations are expected to take approximately 45-50 days on a trouble free basis, and results from the well will be announced when drilling, and if appropriate, testing operations are complete.
