The company said the target has the potential to increase its current oil and natural gas liquid production, enhance its reserves base and open up new oil development opportunities.

Salt Bush is paying 100% of the costs to drill, complete and equip to earn a 75% working interest before payout (BPO) and a 40% working interest after payout (APO). It also has the option to drill a second earning well before the end of the year, paying for 100% of the cost and equipment to earn a 75% working interest in the well BPO and a 50% working interest APO.

Point Loma and Salt Bush would then each have a 50% working interest in the Wizard Lake lands.

Rex oil well started producing on June 5

Point Loma said the first production well at Wizard Lake - the 16-17-48-27W4 Rex oil well - started generating oil on June 5 this year and output for that month was estimated at 4,280 barrels over a total producing period of 555 hours, with the oil cut increasing throughout the period.

Output for the well is estimated to be between 200 and 250 barrels per day (bpd) of oil, with the firm eyeing further production and cashflow.

On June 17, Point Loma unveiled plans to potentially sell its interest in the Wizard Lake Rex oil asset, after it struck a deal with broker Mackie, which will canvas potentially interested parties in a transaction to acquire the firm's 70% working interest.

Shares in Toronto were unchanged at $0.12.
