Houston, TX – February 19, 2020 – Houston American Energy Corp. (NYSE American: HUSA) today announced drilling plans for the company’s second San Andres well in Yoakum County, the Frost #2-H well. The operator has set a drilling date for March, 2020, pending rig availability. The well’s planned total depth is approximately 5,500 feet with a 5,000-foot horizontal leg. The prospect contains 650 gross acres. Houston American also announced that it has increased its working interest in the planned well from 12.5% to 18.6%. The initial Yoakum County well, Frost #1-H, is commercially productive. Jim Schoonover, CEO of Houston American Energy, stated, “We are anxious to begin drilling operations on the Frost #2-H well and pleased to have increased our participation in the well. With the experience gained in drilling our first Yoakum County well, we expect to see improving results from our Yoakum County drilling operations. Our recent infusion of capital has allowed us to retire all outstanding debt and, we believe, positions us to focus, free of capital constraints, on drilling and development of our existing Yoakum County and other Permian Basin holdings and Colombian acreage as well as seeking additional opportunities.” About Houston American Energy Corp.
