Strata-X Energy appoints Board member Ron Prefontaine as Executive Chairman

– USA, CO –  Strata-X Energy Ltd. (TSX-V:SXE | ASX:SXA) today announced that 40-year petroleum veteran, Ron Prefontaine, has accepted the position of Executive Chairman of Strata-X. His primary focus will be to direct the commercialization of Strata-X’s 100% owned Botswana CSG project. His previous role with Strata-X was as the Non-Executive Chairman.

Ron Prefontaine, Strata-X’s Chairman, issued the following statement: “I plan to combine the knowledge gained from the CSG successes with Arrow Energy and Bow Energy and the latest CSG methods to drive Strata-X’s Botswana CSG project to commercialization. The results of our first well recently drilled in the Company’s high graded area of the Botswana CSG Fairway exceeded our expectations with high to 100% gas saturation, associated free gas and permeability – all prime ingredients for a commercial CSG project. Importantly, we plan to prove the gas can be developed using inexpensive vertical drilling and completion methods. Approximately 1.7 TCF of potential gas resource has been certified over Strata-X’s high graded acreage. I will be working with our talented team and reserve certifier to design and implement an optimal appraisal and testing program with the goal to fast track conversion of these resources to reserves.”
