(OTCBB: HUSA) announces that its Weil #1 well in its Hogg Heaven Prospect in Jim Hogg County, Texas has been drilled to 6200′. Based on electric log and sidewall core analysis four pay sands have been found. This total of 34′ of net pay was found in the primary objective sand, the Pettus, as well as sands in the Yegua section. The well is expected to be a natural gas producer but may produce oil as well. Lighthouse Exploration, Inc., the Operator, indicates that a completion attempt will be made as soon as equipment is available. Since the well found multiple pays and is structurally well positioned, several offset wells are possible. Houston American owns a 4.375% Working Interest in this well and prospect. In Vermilion Parish, Louisiana the drilling rig is on location and preparing to spud the Broussard #1 well on the Sugarland Prospect. Houston American owns an 8.25% Working Interest in this 12,900′ test. “We are very pleased with the results of the Weil #1 and its development potential.
