HOUSTON, Apr. 26
– Hewitt Petroleum Inc., Salt Lake City, has spud the Liberty-1 exploratory well in the Central Utah thrust belt as a proposed 5,000-ft test to the Jurassic Twin Creek and Navajo formations.

The Liberty prospect is in Juab County on the Paxton thrust 6 miles west of the Gunnison thrust, where Wolverine Gas & Oil Co. discovered Covenant and Providence oil fields (see map, OGJ, Jan. 17, 2005, p. 44).

Nostra Terra Oil & Gas Co. PLC has a 7% working interest before payout and 5% working interest after payout in the well. Freedom Oil & Gas Inc., Salt Lake City, also participates in the well.

Surface geology, seismic, geochemical, and gravity data were acquired and interpreted to validate the potential sourcing, reservoir quality, and structure of the Liberty prospect, Nostra Terra said.
