Friendly Energy Corp. Oil and Gas Drilling Subsidiary Established
CARSON CITY, Nev., June 30, 2006 (PRIMEZONE) -- Friendly Energy Corp. (Pink Sheets:FDEG) announces today a correction of the press release of June 13th, 2006, previously announcing the company had received a drilling permit for the Asher No. 1 joint venture prospect was effective June 15th, 2006, which was reported incorrectly. The company's joint venture partner and operator, D-Mil Production Inc., has received the operating permit effective immediately. The previous drilling permit reported to be effective June 15th was not issued as reported, due to a review by the Corporation Commission of Oklahoma. This was due to environmental concerns resulting in the fact that the Asher No. 1 well will be drilled with a "closed system," which is utilized for the recapture and containment of the drilling mud and other fluids required for drilling.
