VANCOUVER, Jan. 11, 2013 /CNW/ - Petromin Resources Ltd. ("Petromin", or the "Company") announces that, due to a recent sudden increase in excess production gas needing to be flared at its15-23-42-28W4M Morningside oil well, Petromin has temporarily suspended production testing to comply with the Energy Resources Conservation Boards' request to complete an economic study of the flared gas.

This will help determine the economic viability of compressing the excess gas that is not used to fuel operations for sales into the Company's existing pipeline on the current surface lease.
