Texas’ Leadership in Oil and Gas Drilling Brings Opportunity for Horizon

  Texas’ Leadership in Oil and Gas Drilling Brings Opportunity for Horizon

Business Wire

GULFPORT, Miss. -- July 9, 2014

With 26% of all rigs on Earth now operating in Texas, the state dominates oil
and gas drilling and offers renewed opportunities for companies in the energy
exploration field, such as Horizon Energy Corporation (OTCQB:HORI). The
company is currently conducting oil and gas exploration at the Holmes Oil Unit
Number 1, located in a long established producing trend on the border of
Cherokee and Rusk Counties in East Texas.

While the Texas Railroad Commission reports most of the top Texas counties for
oil production are located in the Eagle Ford Shale, some operators are
returning to fields in East Texas and successfully employing horizontal
drilling and hydraulic fracturing procedures to stimulate wells and target
areas long overlooked or barely tapped.

“We are excited to follow the lead of producers such as Anadarko Petroleum and
EOG Resources in returning to East Texas to revitalize oilfields in this
area,” said Robert Bludorn, President and CEO of Horizon Energy Corporation.
He added, “ As we apply new technology to old fields and gain another pass at
these resources, we help strengthen our state’s world leadership role in the
energy industry.”

As previously reported, recent fracture stimulation testing at the Holmes site
has generated optimism and confirmed the presence of oil and gas in sufficient
quantities to warrant moving forward with production. The company has
scheduled a workover rig to put pump equipment back into the well following
testing so the project can proceed to recovery operations.
