VANCOUVER, BC, Sept. 30, 2022 /CNW/ - NG Energy International Corp. ("NGE" or the "Company") (TSXV: GASX) (OTCQX: GASXF) and CleanEnergy Resources ("CleanEnergy") are pleased to announce the start of drilling at Brujo-1X. Drilling has progressed to a depth of 947 feet and the 13 3/8" well has been cemented at that depth. The well is being drilled to a final depth (TVD) of 7,300 feet in three phases using a 1,500-horsepower hydraulic rig. Several intervals of interest have been identified through geological and geophysical evidences as bright and flat spots associated with gas bearing sands, which are planned to be tested, with the Ciénaga de Oro sandstone reservoir being the primary target in addition to the possibility of discovering gas in the Basal sandstones close to the basement. The Company estimates it will reach the main objectives located at the top and along the Ciénaga de Oro formation in the next two weeks.

Magico-1X was drilled to a TVD of 3,918 feet before the well was completed and tested over 15 MMSCD of dry gas with no water on a comingled production completion from three zones in the upper Ciénaga de Oro sandstone formation between 3,572 and 3,724. The Brujo-1X well will target similar accumulations to these previously encountered zones as well as additional zones at greater depth.
