Mountainview Energy Ltd. Provides Operational Update on its 12 Gage Project in the Williston Basin

CUT BANK, MT, Aug. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - Mountainview Energy Ltd. (TSXV: MVW.V) ("Mountainview" or the "Company") is pleased to provide an operational update on the current drilling program in the Williston Basin.

Heckman 7-6-1H, Section 7 & 6 T162N-101W, Divide County, North Dakota

Mountainview completed drilling operations on the Heckman 7-6-1H well (the "Heckman Well"), the first Three Forks well of Mountainview's planned three-well summer drilling program on its 12 Gage Project.  The Heckman Well successfully reached a Total Depth of 18,165' in 19 days.  The site is currently being prepared for the 26 stage Plug and Perf Fracture Stimulation, which is planned for the week of August 19th.   Good geologic oil and gas shows were encountered while drilling the lateral and the well was drilled under budget by Nabors Rig No 272.

Olson 2-11S-1H, Section 2 & 11 T162-101W, Divide County, North Dakota

The Company's second Three Forks well of its summer drilling program is the Olson 2-11S-1H well (the "Olson 2 Well").  The well was spudded at 11pm on August 7th and the Company successfully ran 1,435' of 7" surface casing.  The Olson well is being drilled on a dual pad with the Olson 35-26-1H well, which will provide significant cost savings due to the use of the same location and road.

Charlotte 1-12-1H, Section 1 & 12 T162-R101W, Divide County, North Dakota

The third well planned for the summer drilling program is the Charlotte 1-12-1H  (the "Charlotte Well").  The Charlotte well is permitted and we are currently constructing the location.  This well is a direct eastern offset to the Olson 2-11S-1H well.
