– Griffin & Griffin Exploration LLC, Jackson, Miss., plans drilling to further develop Belmont Lake oil and gas field in Wilkinson County, Miss.

The field, on 142 acres in the Mississippi River flood plain, averages 130 b/d of 29° gravity oil from two vertical wells on gas lift from Oligocene Frio to a tank battery above flood stage. The first new well could spud as soon as Sept. 21, 2009, said 8% working interest holder Cheetah Oil & Gas Ltd., Nanaimo, BC.

One or two development wells, including a horizontal well, in the north half of the field and an exploration well in the south half could hike production, Cheetah said. Cumulative production is more than 30,000 bbl.
