NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwire) -- 11/29/12 -- Quest Oil Corp. (PINKSHEETS: QOIL) an independent oil production and technology company announced today that it signed a contract to purchase land usage rights for 10 years for the exploration of oil production. This land is located in the Orinoco River in Eastern Venezuela.
It is estimated that the Orinoco region could produce up 1 million bbl. oil daily by the year 2020, a figure equal to half of Venezuela's current oil production.
According to the United States Geological Survey (a bureau of the United States Department of the Interior that employs approximately 8,670 people), the Orinoco Belt alone is estimated to contain 900-1,400 billion barrels (2.2×1011 m3) of heavy crude in proven and unproven deposits. Of this, the United States Geological Survey estimated that 380-652 billion barrels (1.037×1011 m3) could be technically recoverable, which would make Venezuela's total recoverable reserves (proven and unproven) among the largest in the world. The technology needed to recover ultra-heavy crude oil, such as in most of the Orinoco Belt, may be much more complex and expensive than that of Saudi Arabia's light oil industry.
Managing Partner at Miverva Oil Inc., Richard Fasanella says, "We are very pleased to be working with Quest Oil Corp in the Orinoco region. There is a tremendous potential to make an exponential sum of return in this grand scale project. We have all the due diligence and equipment to make this a lucrative venture for both parties."
"We're extremely delighted to be a part of history-in-the-making quest for oil in the Orinoco Belt region," states Ken To, Quest's VP of Operations. "With that in mind, Quest Oil has been equipped and will be funded immediately to pursue this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity," continues Mr. To.
