FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/AMEX: FPP) announced today that it anticipates drilling will begin on its leasehold in township 19 section 15 in Lea County, New Mexico in the third quarter of this year.
Ray Reaves, President and CEO of FieldPoint stated, “This horizontal well project, which was announced originally in 2010, has experienced excessive delays outside of our control.
