BOWLING GREEN, KY -- (Marketwire) -- 07/09/10 -- (PINKSHEETS: AGGI) Allied Energy, Inc. announced that it has agreed with Atmos Pipeline - Texas, a division of Atmos Energy Corporation of Dallas, Texas, to connect Allied's natural gas delivery system to Atmos' pipeline in Grimes County, Texas for the purposes of delivering and selling to the markets natural gas production from Allied's recent discovery.
On May 15, 2010, the Allied Howard #1H horizontal well in Grimes County tested at a flow rate of 4,011 mcf of gas/day (MCFGD) on a 20/64' choke with associated condensate. The well has been shut-in awaiting pipeline connection since that date. It is anticipated that the well initially will produce approximately 2,000 MCFGD and potentially higher in the future. The Company is currently underway constructing the production facilities and the gas flow lines, as well as preparing the project for ongoing producing operations. As a result of having assigned significant portions of the well to its sponsored partnerships and other partners, the Company owns a direct 5% working interest in the Allied Howard #1H well location, and it manages investor partnerships and joint ventures that own an aggregate approximate 80% working interest in the well location. The Company currently owns an 88% working interest in the remainder of the entire approximate 8,000 acre lease on which the Allied Howard #1H is located. Although with respect to additional drilling on the remainder of the lease, the majority of the interest will be available to its investor partnerships and joint ventures, the Company intends to retain a larger working interest for its own account than it owns in the Allied Howard #1H.
'We are pleased to have the opportunity to connect our natural gas system to the Atmos Energy line in Grimes County. Atmos Energy is the largest distributor of natural gas in our community, and we look forward to an ongoing and productive relationship with Atmos,' said Steve Stengell, Allied's President.
Allied Energy, Inc. has contracted Allied Gas Transmission, a majority-owned subsidiary of Allied Energy that is involved in the construction of natural gas transmission systems, to perform the construction and connection of Allied Energy's natural gas flowlines to the Atmos Energy pipeline.
Allied Energy, Inc. also has contracted Allied Operating Texas, LLC, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Allied Energy that is involved in the drilling and operation of oil and gas wells, for the purposes of operating and developing its vertical and horizontal drilling programs in the East Texas Basin.
No assurances can be made concerning present or future production rates or estimated reserves for any given project or the Company as a whole. Tremendous risks and uncertainties are associated with oil and gas drilling, completion, development and production operations. It is impossible to estimate future rates and/or declines in production operations for both condensate and natural gas.
