|Mooncor Continues Testing at Western Canadian Shale Gas Project|
|CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 25, 2009) - Mooncor Oil & Gas Corp. ("Mooncor")(TSX VENTURE:MOO) is pleased to provide an update on its 100 percent working interest Western Canadian shale gas play.
Further to Mooncor's news release on February 19, 2009, Mooncor has compiled recent flow data and retrieved initial pressure data from its pilot well. A subsequent flow test of the pilot well was undertaken and new pressure recording gauges have been installed in the wellbore. Mooncor and its technical advisors are evaluating this preliminary data. The results of the final reports will be disclosed in late April 2009 when testing is completed.
Mooncor is encouraged by the ongoing results from this pilot program. Testing of the shale zone will aid Mooncor and its technical advisors in determining aspects of reservoir quality and deliverability. The results of this pilot program in conjunction with the petrophysical and reservoir simulation study will allow Mooncor to assess the potential of exploiting this shale system.
