at record highs, Fidelis Energy Inc. (OTC:BB FDEI)
should benefit from high energy prices.
Energy Inc. (OTC:BB
FDEI) is an oil
and gas company that identifies, acquires and develops working interest
percentages in smaller, underdeveloped oil and gas projects in California,
Canada, and other promising locales that do not meet the requirements of larger
producers and developers. Through the use of modern development techniques such
as horizontal drilling and 3-D seismic, the company enhances production from
underdeveloped and under-utilized projects, as it pursues oil and gas production
throughout North America.
Energy, Inc. has entered
into an 80% working interest
agreement in the Comanche Point Producing Company, Tejon 400 acre lease. The leased lands lie within Sections
28, 29, 32, 33 of T12N, R18W, SBB&M, Kern County, California. Recent third-party engineering studies
of the sub-surface oil sands underlying the lease have estimated total reserves at over 5,000,000
barrels, and the recoverable
reserves to contain 2,100,000 barrels of heavy crude oil at depths ranging
from 400 to 700 feet below the surface in Etchegoin
$40/Barrel, the recoverable reserves would be valued at over
Due to the
successes of other oil and gas operators proximate to the location of Comanche
Point using various steam methods, it is believed that the planned study will
bear out a production increase to as

terms of the Oil and Gas Purchase Agreement, the Company will provide $305,000 on the closing date of April
1, 2004. An amount of $200,000 will
be paid within 20 days thereafter to commence implementation of the pilot study.
Following full payback of the Company's investment, the working partner of
Fidelis will increase to a 30% working interest as the Company decreases to 70%
interest. Both partners are subject only to a 12.5% royalty to Tejon Ranch on the production.

and completing the first gas well and convert to a working interest partner on
all further wells. The North Franklin project is situated along the
"Eastside Winters Stratigraphic Trend" which has
produced in excess of 450 Bcf gas.
North Franklin there is under lease, approximately 1,000 gross acres. The
multi-objective gas reservoir target is thick, deep-water basin Winters
Formation. The Winters Formation sands are permeable, upper Cretaceous
sandstones. Based on a 450 acre closure,
average net pay sands of 75 feet and a recovery factor of 1200 mcf/acre-foot, the potential prospect reserves are estimated
at 40.5 Bcf of gas with analog wells nearby having
initial production rates of 7,000 Mcf per
has now signed off on the executed AFE (Authority for Expenditure) for the
initial 7,800 foot test well, named "Archer-Whitney #1." The well location has
been chosen, surveyed and permitted. Expected tie-in cost of a successful well
is estimated at $300,000 of which Fidelis will be
responsible for its 35% working interest. The prospect is in close proximity to
existing gas infrastructure in the area. Fidelis has
been informed by the operator that the spud date of "Archer-Whitney #1" well is
to be May 14th,
As reported on The Street.com, Merrill Lynch
analyst Steven Pfeifer pointed to a possible new catalyst for energy
stocks. Pfeifer believes the Street
has finally come to share his view that energy stocks will continue to benefit
from high energy prices. [Robert] Howard likes the drillers. . . . Indeed, he
sees big opportunities across the energy sector. If oil goes to $40 or $45, he
said, it will be like shooting fish in a barrel.
