Spyglass Resources Corp. Provides Drilling Update and Restarts Dixonville Field After Pipeline Incident

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/29/14 -- All values are in Canadian dollars unless otherwise indicated. Conversion of natural gas volumes to barrels of oil equivalent (boe) are at 6:1.

Spyglass Resources Corp. ("Spyglass", or the "Company") (TSX: SGL)(OTCQX: SGLRF) announces that it has restarted production from the Dixonville field after a pipeline incident and provides a drilling update including details on the Company's recent tie-in of a light oil well at Cessford in southern Alberta, the completion and tie-in of a natural gas well in the Cadomin at Noel and the Halkirk-Provost ten well drilling program.

Dixonville Incident Update

Effective immediately the Alberta Energy Regulator (AER) has rescinded the shut in order for the Dixonville field and Spyglass has restarted approximately 28 percent (800 bbl/d) of oil production. Additional production will be restored as pipeline inspection and remediation continues.

In early May the company began conducting in-line inspections of the Dixonville gathering system. The recent pipeline incident occurred on a pipeline that was scheduled for inspection within the next two months. As a result of this incident, Spyglass will only restart portions of the gathering system that have passed inspection or where remediation work has been completed. Based on the current work schedule the field is expected to return to approximately 75 percent of capacity within the next three weeks. Complete inspection and remediation of the gathering system is expected to take 10 to 12 weeks at which time the field will return to its full capability.

The reduction in Dixonville production as a result of pipeline incidents and ongoing integrity work is expected to impact the cash flow of the company by approximately $6.5 million divided between the second and third quarters.

Drilling Update

In mid-April, Spyglass commenced drilling a horizontal Cadomin natural gas well at Noel. The well was completed earlier than anticipated, beginning post frac flow-back in late June. The current flow rate into the pipeline from the well is over 1,000 boe/d of natural gas. The Company has an extensive drilling inventory at Noel, with over 85 follow up Cadomin horizontal locations identified.

Spyglass previously announced the successful completion of 1 (1.0 net) Glauconite light oil well at Cessford with 24-hour test rates in excess of 1,000 boe/d (65 percent liquids). Given these test rates, facilities are currently being upgraded to accommodate the production from this well and follow up locations. In May, the well was placed on production, however due to third party facility constraints it is producing approximately 330 boe/d. Spyglass will begin drilling two additional Cessford wells in July.

The Company also expects to commence a 10 well horizontal drilling program, targeting Viking light oil, in the Halkirk-Provost area in mid-July.

Spyglass Resources Corp. is a dividend paying intermediate oil and natural gas producer, headquartered in Calgary, Alberta and currently operates oil and gas properties in Western Canada.

Barrel of oil equivalents or BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. As the value ratio between natural gas and crude oil based on the current prices of natural gas and crude oil is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.

This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell, nor the solicitation of an offer to buy, any securities in the United States, nor shall there be any sale of securities mentioned in this press release in any State in the United States in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful prior to registration or qualification under the securities law of any such State.

WebRTC has had a real tough three or four years, and so have those working with it. Only a few short years ago, the development world were excited about WebRTC and proclaiming how awesome it was. You might have played with the technology a couple of years ago, only to find the extra infrastructure requirements were painful to implement and poorly documented. This probably left a bitter taste in your mouth, especially when things went wrong.
