American Energy Development is an independent oil and gas company seeking to expand through the development of acreage in established oil and gas basins. The company's current focus is on development of acreage in the Niagaran oil reefs in Michigan and in underexplored onshore basins in the United Kingdom.

The Niagaran Reef is of particular interest to the company. Historical records of the Niagaran reef production in Michigan confirm more than 4,200 wells have been drilled targeting reef formations. Much of the drilling in the region has been conducted by major players in the energy industry, including Royal Dutch Shell, ExxonMobil, and BP. According to a recent report on the basin, the recoverable reserves are in excess of 1.8 billion barrels of oil and 17 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. To date, the area has produced a total 472 million barrels of oil and 2.8 trillion cubic feet of natural gas.

The company today provided a drilling update on the Cremer 1-1, located on the 1,343 acre Dansville Prospect in the southern part of lower Michigan. American Energy reported the Cremer 1-1 is currently at a depth of approximately 4,380 feet and drilling is anticipated to be completed in the next 24-36 hours. At that time, geophysical logging will be conducted to measure rock and fluid properties of the formation. In addition, data will be collected on density, porosity, and permeability, along with oil and water saturation, which are necessary to determine the potential productivity of the well.

This data collection will aid the company in maximizing both the well's production and recovery rates. For additional information about this project and others being conducted by American Energy Development, please visit the company's website at aed-corp.com.
