HOUSTON, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 11/12/12 -- Vanguard Energy Corporation (OTCQX: VNGE), an oil development and production company, today announced that the Company has successfully brought three more recently completed wells into production.
The Company put the three new wells on its Batson Dome Field in southeast Texas into production at collective rates that meet or exceed average rates for the field. The three wells, financed with proceeds from the Company's recently completed convertible debt financing, have enabled the Company's total production to exceed a total of over 6,000 barrels in October, a new record. The Company recently renegotiated its contract with SUNOCO and now sells its production at an $11 premium to posted WTI pricing.
Continuing its development program, the Company has permitted one additional drill location at Batson Dome and will commence drilling that well shortly. The Company has also identified its first well location at the recently acquired acreage in the Hull Field located in Liberty County, Texas. Final preparations to permit that well are under way and it is expected that drilling will commence before yearend.
Mr. Warren Dillard, President of Vanguard Energy, said, "I am very pleased to have these three wells successfully completed and in production. More important is the fact that we are continuing our drilling program with another well at Batson Dome and our first well in the Hull Field in Liberty County. I anticipate that these new wells will be completed and in production shortly and I look forward to announcing those results."
