CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 08/07/12 -- GeoGlobal Resources Inc. ("GeoGlobal") (NYSE MKT:GGR) (NYSE Amex:GGR) today announced as the Operator of the Myra-1 well, that there has been a stuck pipe incident while drilling the well which could not be released. As we could no longer continue the drilling according to the original plan, after consultation with the partners, we decided to side-track the current hole and continue the drilling to reach the gas target.
GeoGlobal and its partners in the Myra License have approved an increase of US$4,000,000 to the drilling budget of the Myra-1 well and an additional seven days extension in which to complete the drilling.
GeoGlobal is the well Operator and owns a 5% interest in the Myra-1 well which is located approximately 80 kilometres off the coast of Israel in approximately 1,500 meters of water.
GeoGlobal Resources Inc., headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, is a US publicly traded oil and gas company, which, through its subsidiaries, is engaged in the pursuit of petroleum and natural gas in high potential exploration targets through exploration and development in India, Israel and Colombia.
