Toronto, Ontario--(Newsfile Corp. - May 22, 2024) - Canuc Resources Corporation (TSXV: CDA) (OTCQB: CNUCF) ("Canuc" or the "Company") announces that the Company is undertaking repair and workover operations for the natural gas producing wells held by the Company's 100% owned subsidiary MidTex Oil and Gas Corporation ("MidTex"). MidTex has ownership and lease rights for (8) producing natural gas wells in Stephens County, West Texas and also holds rights for further in field developments.

The Big Saline Formation is a natural gas bearing zone which is located at approximately 3,700-feet true vertical depth ("TVD") in the Company's operating natural gas wells. The Company's Coody-Morales Trac 3-3 well has been producing from the Big Saline for more than 13 years. The well was drilled in 2011, with a drilling and completion cost of $153K USD, and to date has produced a gross revenue of $1.04M USD ($1.43M CAD). The well has exhibited low decline rates and in 2023 produced 35,246 MCF of natural gas at an average sale price of $3.27 USD ($4.48 CAD) per MCF. The currently scheduled repairs are expected to return the well to its historical gas production rates.

Logs for the Company's Coody-Morales Trac 3-3 well indicate that above the Big Saline Formation there are two further hydrocarbon zones which are prospective for production. The Caddo Limestone is a potential oil-bearing zone located at approximately 3,200' TVD and the Strawn Sands is a potential gas-bearing zone located at approximately 1,700' TVD.

The Company expects to move up hole to complete and test both the Caddo Limestone (oil) and the Strawn Sands (natural gas) respectively at some point in the future, after economic depletion of the Big Saline.

An AFE (Authorization For Expenditure) for workover operations on the Coody-Morales Trac 3-3 well has been received from the Company's operator in Breckenridge, Texas. Work on the well will commence imminently and resumption of natural gas production is expected to begin soon thereafter.

"The Big Saline Formation in the Coody-Morales Trac 3-3 well has been producing cash flow for Canuc since 2011 and has already paid out several times over the drilling and completion costs of the well. We expect to continue producing this zone until it is depleted. Above this zone, and behind pipe, are two further zones which are prospective for hydrocarbon production, the Caddo Limestone (oil-bearing zone) and the Strawn Sands (natural gas-bearing zone). In addition to this, the company also holds rights for further in field developments." Stated Christopher Berlet, President & CEO of Canuc.

"In developing the company's cash flow from smaller projects in safe jurisdictions, we seek to protect shareholders from unnecessary dilution and to minimize share issuance."

The repair and workover operation is expected to be completed in the next 2-4 weeks and the Company will report further when results are received.
