PetroFrontier announces seismic program in Australia

Source:PetroFrontier Corp.

PetroFrontier has begun work on its four exploration permits in the Southern Georgina Basin, Northern Territory, Australia. PetroFrontier Corp. ("PetroFrontier") announces that it has begun recording the "AMY" 2D proprietary seismic acquisition program (approximately 385 km in length) on its four exploration permits ("EP"), EP 103, EP 104, EP 127 and EP 128, in the Southern Georgina Basin, Northern Territory, Australia.

This seismic survey, contracted to Terrex Seismic of Australia, will fulfill the Northern Territory government work commitments for permit retention, will delineate the southern and northwest basin margins and help outline prospective hydrocarbon target areas. PetroFrontier and its partners, Statoil Australia Theta B.V., a wholly owned subsidiary of Statoil ASA ("Statoil") and Baraka Energy & Resources Limited, will interpret the data gathered to target conventional hydrocarbons in the Cambrian Thorntonia and other formations and unconventional hydrocarbons in the Lower Cambrian Arthur Creek Formation. The most promising areas will be seismically mapped out and the data will aid in identifying locations for exploration wells to be drilled as part of the 2013/2014 capital exploration program in the Southern Georgina Basin.
