West Bay Exploration's Shelby Township oil well is NOT viable, will be capped

West Bay Exploration communicated to Shelby Township Fire Chief Jim Swinkowski May 19 that the company's oil well near 25 Mile and Dequindre roads did NOT test as viable for production and will be capped. The are surrounding the well site will be returned to its previous state.

Board Members,


I just got off the phone with Pat Gibson and Tim Baker with regards to the oil well. They requested that I immediately inform you that testing has not indicated any oil deposits so they will begin closing and plugging the well this week and should have the site returned to its original condition early next week. Weather permitting.
