DENVER, Jan. 30, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Foothills Exploration, Inc.

Labokay is an amplitude versus offset (“AVO”) oil play in Southwestern Louisiana targeting the Frio Nododaria Blanpiedi Sand, a prolific regionally productive zone.  The well will be drilled to a total measured depth of 8,575 feet and true vertical depth of 8,190 feet.  The Company will earn 100% working interest before payout for drilling the well and Magna Operating will back in for a 20% working interest after payout.
