– Corridor Resources Inc., Halifax, and Petrolia, Rimouski, Que., will jointly drill four exploratory wells starting in late June on Anticosti Island in Quebec.

The wells will probe for oil potential in Ordovician Trenton-Black River carbonates in the central and southeastern parts of the island. The program follows up on oil shows encountered in wells on the Jupiter and Chaloupe prospects.

Jupiter and Chaloupe, drilled in 2005, encountered the TBR formation at 650-1,200 m (OGJ, Sept. 26, 2005, p. 48).

The four planned wells are to drill the formation directionally using an underbalanced lightweight drilling fluid designed to permit oil recovery at restricted rates during flow tests. The two companies hold 75% and 25% working interests, respectively, in the Jupiter and Saumon wells and 50% each in the Chaloupe and Bell or Macaire prospects.
