VVC Exploration Corporation ("VVC" or the "Company") received the gas analysis from the Durler 2-21 well ("the Durler") (see news release of May 25, 2022 ) located in the Company's Syracuse Helium Project. Multiple gas samples from the well were sent to the lab for analysis, which confirmed the presence of 1.14% helium in a gas-stream that can be easily refined into high-grade sales quality helium. The Durler was already connected to VVC's helium & natural gas gathering system pipeline and to the Tumbleweed Pipeline and Processing Plant.
"As Chairman of the Board, I have seen the immense progress of the VVC team over the past year and am excited about continuing to develop the Company's helium assets," said Dr. Terrence Martell, Chairman of the VVC Board. "This gas analysis shows a helium percentage in the upper range for the area, reinforcing our confidence in the project."
Syracuse Project Highlights:
- 2 newly drilled and connected wells, Levens #2 and Durler 2-21;
- 6 drilled wells waiting for completion and connection to Internal Pipeline;
- 7 additional well sites currently permitted and prepped for drilling;
- 15 identified well sites currently being permitted;
- 50 additional potential well sites;
- New leases continue to be added on an opportunistic basis.
