Monday, April 25, 2005
HOUSTON, April 25, 2005 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/– Houston American Energy Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: HUSA – News) announces a domestic drilling update. The first well on the Company’s South Sibley Prospect in Webster Parish, Louisiana has commenced drilling operations and is currently drilling ahead below 5000′ towards total depth projected between 9300′ and 10,000′. This well’s primary objective is the Hosston Sands. Houston American has a 7.5% Working Interest at a 8.3% Net Revenue Interest carried to point of sales for this well. Houston American is pleased to announce that its Baronet #2 well has reached total depth of 12,100′ and the Hayes Sand objective was encountered about 70′ high to the flank well that produced 1.6 BCF of natural gas from the Hayes. Hole conditions deteriorated during logging attempts and only an induction log was run and it could not get through the sand but did log an apparent 21′ of net pay and stopped logging in apparent pay. A completion attempt will be made immediately and cased hole tools will be run to determine the full extent of the apparent pay section. Houston American has a 3% Working Interest and 2.25% Net Revenue Interest until payout in this well. “We are very pleased to have begun drilling on the South Sibley Prospect. This is a very large prospect with the potential for many wells. Houston American has no cost exposure in this first well or in the next two wells for that matter. The Baronet #2 appears to be significant discovery but since all diagnostic tools could not be run this will be confirmed by a production test,” said John F. Terwilliger, Chairman, Houston American Energy Corp.
