VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Dejour Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: DEJ / TSX: DEJ) (“Dejour” or the “Company”), an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America's Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, updates current development progress underway at the Woodrush/Hunter Project (“Woodrush”) in NE British Columbia.
As per the previously announced 2014 development program, Dejour has now drilled, logged and cased the second new well of the campaign to the targeted base of the Gething. Well logs indicate a net 17’ of high quality productive hydrocarbon pay in the same Gething gas pool as the first well, in anticipated commercially viable quantities. Both wells are expected to contribute to the 2015 Woodrush production profile (one for oil, one for gas) upon completion. Production test results will be forthcoming.
This new gas well (A-100) confirms the extension of the Gething zone in accordance with revised mapping by Dejour’s geological team. This gas zone is currently open in all directions.
The Company owns a 99% working interest in this well and is the Operator. With the addition of these two new producers, Dejour now operates a total of 13 oil and gas wells on this 17,000 net acre Woodrush/ Hunter project.
"This confirmation well completes an important drill program for Dejour at Woodrush, this season. The Gething Gas pool discovered is expected to enhance the Company’s reserve base for this project and provide further financial flexibility for expansion. This pool appears capable of significant additional production as prices dictate based on our technical team’s mapping over much of the leasehold. Finding and development costs approximate $5/BOE. Well information from this successful operation has been provided to GLJ, our reservoir engineers, for inclusion in the YE 2014 numbers," states Robert L. Hodgkinson, CEO.
