Saturn’s additional acreage builds on their existing Dodsland and Milton assets as well as two sections in the Plenty area. “Our technical team has been focusing on these assets for several months and excited with the perspectivity of these areas. We see good offsetting production and favorable reservoir for development,” stated Justin Kaufmann, Saturn’s VP of Exploration.
Saturn has successfully drilled 5 additional Viking horizontal wells since the news release dated September 17th, 2018.

Completion operations on these 5 wells will move ahead during this time and the Company will release results on production as they come available.
