NEW ORLEANS, June 2, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Treaty Energy Corporation (OTCQB: TECO) ( http://www.treatyenergy.com), a growth-oriented international energy company, today announced that Aquinas Energy Resources, Inc. (Aquinas) in Houston, Texas has signed a Seismic Survey Contract involving the Belle Wisdom South lease.
Treaty Energy announced the Farmout Agreement contracted with Aquinas for a Four Well Farmout drilling program May 15th. The Seismic Survey will be conducted by Leroy Lee of American Seismic from Scottsdale, Arizona. Chris D. Tesarski, Executive Chairman of Treaty Energy, will work closely with Aquinas's geologist and geophysicist Bill Gaskin, to review and select the first two drill sites and request a permit through the Texas Railroad Commission (TRRC) immediately. The new seismic data should assist Treaty Energy in providing the best site selections in order to maximize the potential return on investment to shareholders at the lowest possible risk. This survey should take approximately two weeks, followed by another two weeks for processing. It is now taking approximately five to six weeks for a permit to be issued by the TRRC. The current timeline calls for final permitting to be obtained by the third or fourth week of July. It is anticipated drilling of the first well could begin by the second week of August. Treaty currently has a Wilson 42 Rig available with the capability to drill to 7000 ft which meets the needs of the Four Well Farmout. Mr. Tesarski remarked, "I am extremely pleased at the progress we are making and will continue to make as we systematically develop our Four Well Farmout Agreement with Aquinas. I look forward to working together with them as we assess other lease opportunities. I think that this should be encouraging to our shareholders, that when a company like Treaty makes changes in key personnel, alters its business plan, and allows new opportunities to take shape in such a professional manner that we truly are listening to and valuing our shareholders. There is much work ahead, but it is my goal to improve shareholder awareness of company operations and increase shareholder value. This project marks the beginning of a new Treaty."
