1979): Diagenetically formed interstitial clay minerals as a factor in Rotliegende
Sandstone reservoir quality in the Dutch sector of the North Sea.
The well will target the lower Rotliegende
sands at a total vertical depth of approximately 7,900 feet.
The prospect will test the Rotliegendes
formation with an estimated volume of up to 80 billion cubic feet of natural gas.
High barium concentrations in deep groundwaters occur in sandstones of oilfields, exceeding several tens of mg/L, for example over 50 mg/L in the Rotliegendes
Formation in Germany and up to 175 mg/L in the Carpathian Foredeep Meso-Cenozoic rocks (Kolodiy 1983; Traber 2002).
The well was drilled to a total depth of 12,284 feet and flow tested at a rate of 32 million cubic feet of gas per day from the targeted Rotliegendes
Up to now, very little exploration on a relative basis has been conducted in Poland by the POGC or anyone else to prove the theory that these Rotliegendes
targets most likely contain natural gas.

The Juliet reservoir is considered to be fully appraised Rotliegendes
Leman Sandstone reservoir with gross associated reserves of 11.
The project to fully de-man the Hewett Complex was completed yielding significant cost savings and an appraisal-development well, targeting a deep Rotliegendes
reservoir in the Hewett main field, is scheduled to spud in September 2008.
Nevertheless, if the Company is correct that Poland's Permian Basin is analogous to the southern North Sea in terms of geology and hydrocarbon holding potential, then its targeted Rotliegendes
sandstone could be to FX Energy what the Pinedale Anticline in the U.

The appraisal-development well targeting a deep Rotliegendes
reservoir in the Hewett main field is scheduled for August 2008.
