GOLDEN, Colo., Nov. 06, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Truleum, Inc. (OTC.PK – TRLM) (“Truleum”) announced today that it has acquired quitclaim title to various tracts of the Logan Project covering approximately 400 additional acres. Ownership of the additional acres has now been clarified adding the approximate 400 acres covering nine (9) well bores owned and operated by Truleum. The company’s acreage held in the Project increased from 1380 to 1620 net acres. The new acreage adds behind-pipe potential in some of the nine affected wellbores and adds full interest in undrilled locations that Truleum can now access with clear title.

The Company’s current reserve report dated October 16, 2023 was prepared by an independent petroleum engineering firm (“Liquid Gold Technologies”) prior to the acquisition of the additional acres. It is available on the SEC’s website (www.sec.gov) as Exhibit 10.1 to the company’s current report on Form 8-K filed with the SEC on November 11, 2023. In this report, net Proved plus Probable (2P) oil and gas reserves in the Logan Project (expressed as barrels of oil equivalent using a 6:1 mcf gas to barrel oil ratio) is 2.42 million barrels of oil equivalent.

Based on comparison with an older reserve report that included the new acreage, management believes that the additional 400 acres in the Logan Project will add approximately 0.95 million barrels of oil equivalent to the reserves from the amount that had been estimated in the October 16, 2023 report, for a net total of 3.38 million barrels of oil equivalent. Management cautions that to access the new reserves Truleum will require significant additional capital and resources in order to access, either through recompletion of existing zones that were not part of the original completion in existing wells (“behind pipe” reserves) or through drilling new wells.

As defined by the Society of Petroleum Engineers, behind-pipe reserves are expected to be recovered from zones in existing wells, which will require additional completion work, or future recompletion prior to the start of production.

Truleum’s President, Jay Leaver states, “This additional acreage allows us to fully access a key portion of our holdings in the Logan Project and we look forward to increasing revenue from this property in 2024, subject to obtaining financing to improve existing facilities and recomplete existing well bores.”
