20 February 2020 - Falcon Oil & Gas Ltd. (TSXV: FO, AIM: FOG) is pleased to announce that drilling operations, including casing and cementing, on the Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2 well have been successfully completed.
The well has been drilled to a total measured depth of 3,809 metres, including a 1,579 metre lateral section (from 90 degrees) in the Lower Kyalla Formation.

The JV will continue its in-depth shale evaluation program of all the technical data gathered from the conventional cores, sidewall cores, DFITs and extensive wireline logging, to build an understanding of the prospectivity of the Kyalla Formation.
Philip O’Quigley, CEO of Falcon commented:
“We are delighted to have successfully completed the Kyalla horizontal well section and we now look forward to the next phase of operations with the fracture stimulation of Kyalla 117 N2-1H ST2. We will continue to update the market as results become available.”
