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.
Dejour will initiate production from its new Gething discovery this coming week at rates in excess of 1 mmcf/d. Initial production being flared demonstrated excellent flow rates with over 1500 kPa of pressure, through a restrictive 9mm choke. This new well (A-100) confirms the extension of a blanket Gething zone in accordance with revised mapping by Dejour’s geological team, thought to cover at least several sections of land under lease. The Company owns a 99% working interest in this well and is the project operator.
“We are very pleased with this discovery and its pending contribution to our Woodrush production (now approximately 600 BOE/day) as this is the first in a series of operational updates expected to positively impact our 2015 profile. This Gething Gas pool discovery is anticipated to enhance the Company’s reserve base for this project and provide further financial flexibility for expansion. The low finding and development costs of these recent discoveries allows us to move forward even in this turbulent commodity price environment,” states Robert L. Hodgkinson, Chairman & CEO.
