Well's management believes that the Sawn Lake Heavy Oil
Project is at the same pre-growth stage experienced by
other heavy oil companies prior to a major period of
targeting the deeper Slave Point Formation have
previously drilled much of the land. Because of the
earlier extensive exploration for light oil, Deep Well
is able to benefit from data collected by others
pertaining to the drilling of more than seventy-five
wells that penetrated and partially delineated the heart
of the Bluesky Formation heavy oil reservoir.
