TMD ENERGY - A Division of Target Market
TMD Energy specializes in developing, managing and brokering
oil and gas properties in Tennessee. It is currently
developing a pilot Trenton-Knox deepening project, a 5,000
ft. Knox drilling prospect and is serving as the managing
partner of a150 million ton coalbed methane project near Rockwood,
The firm also owns and operates its own wells in Clay, Fentress
and Morgan Counties.
As the attached drawing illustrates, operators are hitting
shallow commercial oil and gas wells in the Trenton &
Knox in middle Tennessee. They are also hitting 200
bod oil wells in the Trenton and gas wells with IPs
of 1-5MMCF in the Knox in upper east Tennessee.
Between the shallow wells in middle Tennessee and the deep
wells in east Tennessee, there are hundreds of wells that
were only drilled to the Ft. Payne formation. These
wells are candidates for deepening.
COAL BED METHANE
Rockwood Gas Exploration is in the early stages of developing
a 15,000- acre coalbed methane project near the city of Rockwood.
Some 150 million tons of coal have been blocked out by core
drilling. Rockwood is preparing to drill a test well
to core the coal and to test two deeper potential gas producing
horizons below the coal.
KNOX DRILLING PROSPECT
Knoxville-based Tengascos recent success drilling
and producing 5,000 ft. Knox gas wells and 3,500 ft. Trenton
oil wells in its Swan Creek field has sparked a Knox play
in Eastern Tennessee. TMD Energy has been following
the play and is now leasing the first of its six Knox prospects.

During the period between 1979 and 1985, Saint Joseph Petroleum
discovered and developed two oil and gas fields in East Tennessee.
Both fields were discovered by discovery wells drilled by
Saint Joseph Petroleum. These fields are described below:
Hurricane Ridge Gas Field, Fentress County, TN, covers
3,135 acres. Produces gas and some oil from Mississippian
Ft. Payne Limestone at 1,5000 ft. Cumulative production
thru 2000, approximately 2.5 BCF gas. Field still produces
Stockton SW Field, Fentress County, TN covers 2,560
acres. produces gas and oil from Mississippian Monteagle
Limestone and Ft. Payne Limestone at 800 and 1,250 feet. Cumulative
production thru 2000, approximately 2 BCF gas and 400,000
barrels oil. Field still produces 40 barrels of oil
During the period 1985-2000, Saint Joseph Petroleum did not
develop and drill new prospects, due to low oil and gas prices.
The company is active again trying to develop new Trenton/Black
River Ordovician prospects on the Cumberland Plateau of East
Tennessee. These Prospects will be developed using aeromagnetic
survey data with special basement fault interpretation techniques
to locate hydrothermal dolomite areas. Prospective depths
range from 2,500 to 3,5000 feet. Leased and drillable
prospects should be available late 2001 or early 2002.

OIL IN CUMBERLAND COUNTY
CROCUS CREEK PROJECT
Oil is not new to Cumberland County, Kentucky. In fact, there
were shallow oil wells all around this county at the turn
of the last century. There was even small refinery. Standard
Oil was active for several years and used barges on the Cumberland
River to ship their oil.
We are planning to drill several shallow wells on our 600
acre lease in the Bakerton community. We are currently operating
a 300' Granville well in one corner of this property. To the
best of my knowledge, there has been no drilling on the larger
part of the lease, but there are old oil wells all around
The area of special interest shows high cliffs on the East
as well as the South. These lead down into the Cumberland
River and its tributary, Crocus Creek. Because of the rise
in elevation, I am looking to find the Granville formation
at about 550' to 650'; failing that, we might want to take
these wells to the Knox formation. From the Granville to the
Knox formations, we will explore the Upper and Lower Sunnybrook,
as well as the Stones River, Murfreesboro and Wells Creek
formations, all of them major players for oil exploration
here in South Central Kentucky.
YOUNG OIL CORP.
57 OF 72 -YOUNG OIL CORP HAS BEST HIT TO DRY HOLE RATIO
IN THE STATE OF TENNESSEE
Young Oil Corporation, a privately owned oil and gas exploration,
based in Knob Lick, Kentucky, has the best record for drilling
producing wells in the state of Tennessee.
We are 57 for 72 through our first four years,
explains Anthony Young, CEO and owner of the firm.
Actually, our hit ratio has improved with each passing
year, and we expect to do as well, if not better in 2001-2002.
We have a solid acreage block in a very productive area.
We have a new drilling rig that allows us to speed
up our exploration program considerably, and we believe we
have a good handle on finding more of these Tennessee fracture-enhanced
reservoirs. he added.
Young focuses his exploration efforts on shallow formations,
less than 2000 feet. In fact, he has several discoveries
at less than 500 feet. For example, the Nancy Peace #4, a
460-foot Fort Payne well in Overton County produced 10,332
barrels of oil in the first six and a half months on pump.
And it is still producing today.
There are thousands of potential productive leases
in Tennessee and Kentucky. We are going to drill a lot
of them, but we could do more with some more good financial
partners, says Young.
