Thursday, November 4, 2004
HOUSTON, November 4, 2004 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/– Houston American Energy Corp. (OTC Bulletin Board: HUSA – News) announces results for its W. Hoffpauer #1 well (formally the Baronet #1 well) on its Crowley Prospect in Arcadia Parish, Louisiana. The Hoffpauer #1 has been production tested at a rate in excess of 1250 mcf of gas per day and 50 barrels of condensate per day on a 10/64″ choke at flowing pressures in excess of 2800#. Perforations were in the Upper Camerina interval from 10,954′ to 10,960′. Sales will commence as soon as a sales line and production facilities are installed. It is expected that drilling operations will commence in the near future for a well on this prospect to test the Hayes Sand at 12,100′. HUSA owns a 3% Working Interest and a 2.25% Net Revenue Interest to payout in this well and prospect. “We are delighted with this production test and very much look forward to testing the Hayes Sand in the new well. Strong gas flow caused the original hole to be lost. A new drilling design should prevent this from causing problems in the new well and we look forward to a successful test of the Hayes,” said John F. Terwilliger, Chairman Houston American Energy Corp.
