Zion Oil & Gas Continues Active Drilling in Israel

Zion Oil & Gas Inc said on Wednesday it has continued active drilling operations at its Megiddo-Jezreel well in Israel and has reached a depth of about 5,850 feet (1,785 meters) toward a proposed total depth of up to about 15,000 feet.

The company said it has obtained over 20 sidewall cores from different zones within the well that spanned 2,625 feet after running wireline logs and analyzing the data, adding that The Geologic Survey of Israel is analyzing several of the cores for porosity, permeability, and other factors. “I am encouraged by the results so far,” said president Dustin Guinn. “Because this is an exploration well, it continually presents surprises, but overall, we are excited about the progress and prayerfully continue drilling ahead.”
