Indigo-Energy completes final stage testing in Illinois Basin Project

Indigo-Energy, Inc. (IDGG) has successfully completed a series of required tests on a 5,800 foot transmission line regulated by the state utilities commission. This pipeline is part of the processing and transportation system intended to be utilized to deliver natural gas from the wells recently completed by Indigo and its operating partners in the Illinois Basin drilling project. The high pressure test along with detailed inspections, were conducted on the transmission line that connects the field’s natural gas processing plant and the interstate pipeline. The testing process was concluded on March 2nd and recommended mechanical adjustments highlighted during the inspection process were completed in the field on March 3rd. These steps were critical in moving the Company towards full-time production on three natural gas wells recently completed within the New Albany shale of the Illinois Basin. The pump systems recently installed on these gas wells and on the horizontal oil well in this same field have also completed initial testing and are standing by to await the final clearance for production by the utilities regulatory commission and interstate pipeline.

According to Indigo President and CEO Steve Durdin, the Company and its project field partners anticipate flowing and processing natural gas over the next few weeks with full time production by the end of this month. The same anticipated timeline applies to oil production and sales from the horizontal oil well.
