VVC Drilling Wells on Plateau Helium's Syracuse Property
TORONTO, Aug. 19, 2021 - VVC Exploration Corp. ("VVC" or the "Company") (TSX-V:VVC) is pleased to announce the following updates from Plateau Helium Corporation (PHC), VVC's wholly owned helium exploration and production company:
- Drilling on the first new Syracuse well, Durler 2-21, began on August 2nd with drilling completed on August 12th. The well was drilled to a depth of 5,500 ft and encountered 2 gas zones that showed helium. The well completion, perforation, well-head installation, and attachment to the pipeline for commencement of production will occur in approximately 2 weeks.
- Drilling of a second Syracuse well, Levens 2, began on August 14th and is expected to be completed on August 22nd. The well completion, perforation, well-head installation, and attachment to the pipeline will begin shortly after.
- Drilling of a third Syracuse well is scheduled to begin on August 24th.
All potentially productive gas zones encountered during the drilling of these wells will be evaluated. If a firm pattern is established one or more additional rigs may be added.
VVC President Jim Culver commented, "With the drilling of these wells, we are getting closer to generating positive cash flows from the helium business. This is the Company's immediate goal, as it will help provide funding to the Company's other projects."
