05:24 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas provides operational advisory
The Bluff #1-11 well has set a drillable bridge plug at 7,160 feet in the intermediate casing and the pressure was bled off enabling drill pipe to be run into the hole to the top of the plug. Currently the rig is conditioning mud in preparation to drill out the plug and to prepare the open hole for logs. During the well control operations last evening a gas sample was obtained, and has been analyzed and has determined a 97% nitrogen content with 2% methane and heavier hydrocarbons. The generation of nitrogen is thought to be associated with dolomitic zones that are encased in anhydrite. The proposed drill pipe conveyed logging program will enable the various oil shows that were recorded in the Permian, Pennsylvanian and Mississippian targets to be evaluated. Oily mud was observed at 8,090 feet and 8,430 feet and the mud analysis recorded up to 5% of contained oil at 8,650 feet.

05:08 EDTSSNSamson Oil & Gas provides operational update
Samson Oil & Gas reports the Ironbank 4-14-13TFH has completed drilling the lateral and has set and cemented the production liner in the Three Forks Formation bench 1. Rig time on this well totaled 20.75 days which compares favorably with the prior 5 TF1 wells which averaged 21.75 days spud to rig release. The Frontier 24 rig is currently being skidded to the Ironbank 5-14-13H location. The Bootleg 4 and 5 wells continue to flow at rates exceeding 500 BOPD. The Gladys 1-20H well has been drilled by Continental Resources to a total depth of 19,994 feet. The well is a 1,280 acre lateral in the middle member of the Bakken Formation. As expected the water cut from this well is decreasing and has shown a trend that started in the 80% range and is now around 60%. Samson has contracted True Drilling Rig #26, which is expected to be mobilized to the Bluff 1-11 well on or around October 9th. The forward plan for this well will be to drill out a temporary plug and set a liner across the Permian 9,500 sand which will then enable a flow test to be undertaken. This test is aimed at establishing a flow rate and enable a detailed gas analysis to be undertaken. The test will also include a shut-in period which can be used to establish whether a gas-oil contact exist below the current intersection.
