Point Loma Resources Ltd's (CVE:PLX) (OTCMKTS:FMTNF) horizontal well is a new Rex oil pool discovery and showed a top tier flow test at more than 90% oil, says broker Mackie.

On Monday, the Calgary-headquartered group posted successful production test results for its Wizard Lake HZ 16-17-48-27W4 Rex oil pool well in Alberta.

Over the final 24 hours of the test, the well produced at a rate of 340 boe/d (90% oil). Oil cuts continued to trend up through the test, which indicates the potential for higher rates once the well is placed on full-time production, the broker said.

"This is an excellent test and opens up a significant new oil play for the company. We maintain our BUY recommendation and our $1.10 target price," said Mackie analyst Bill Newman in a note to clients.

The junior oiler has a 70% working interest in the lands associated with the well.

Last year, Point Loma secured the rights to the Rex (Upper Mannville) oil play at Wizard Lake, on trend with Altura Energy's Rex play at Leduc.

And last month (December), it sank the first Rex oil horizontal well, which intersected good quality reservoir along the entire 1,200-meter lateral length.

The company then completed a 28-stage frac program and commence flowback with a submersible pump on December 24, 2018

The company holds 3,385 acres (2,370 net acres) over the Rex play and sees up to 14 additional drilling locations.

Potential for 60 million barrels 

Mackie analyst Newman highlighted that the company’s own internal mapping showed the Rex pool had the potential to hold 60 million barrels of original oil in place (OOIP).

Assuming a 10% recovery factor based on primary production only, Newman calculates a potential net recoverable of around 4.8 million barrels equivalent to around 65% of the company's current 2P (proved and probable) reserves.

Also, the firm has 'multi-bagger' return potential from its evolving Rex Oil play, conventional Banff oil play and the Duvernay shale oil resource play, said the analyst.

Point Loma shares are unchanged in Toronto at $0.20.

“To open up the well and have clean oil come to surface with no water meant the Gatwick Gusher gushed again – a lot earlier than we thought,” Lenigas said in exclusive interview with Proactive Investors’ Andrew Scott.
