Trans Energy's Whipkey #2H Horizontal Marcellus Well Is On-line In Marshall County West Virginia

ST. MARYS, W.Va., June 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trans Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: TENG) announced today that it turned into a sales line it's Whipkey #2H horizontal Marcellus well in Marshall County, West Virginia on Friday, May 21st.

The Whipkey #2H with a horizontal lateral of almost 4,000 feet was completed with a 16 stage frac.  The Company believes that the well's natural gas volumes and working pressure confirm that this development area is among the most attractive parts of this substantial shale play.

James K. Abcouwer, President and CEO of Trans Energy, said, "We were successful in fracing the Whipkey #2H according to our 16-stage plan.  Although it has only been turned into sales for only a little more than a week, we are very encouraged with the initial results. This is a longer lateral and proves up more reserves than our first horizontal.  We see it as another significant step forward for Trans Energy to properly develop its acreage position in northern West Virginia."  

The Company is currently fracing its third horizontal, the Whipkey #1H Marcellus well, located on the same pad site and anticipates turning this well into sales around June 10th.

The Company has put on its homepage at www.transenergyinc.com a video clip of the flare from the Whipkey #2H before it was turned into sales along with various pictures.

The Company continues to expand its acreage position centered on Wetzel, Marion, and Marshall Counties in West Virginia, which is in the heart of the most prolific natural gas resource in Appalachia, and one of the greatest in the United States.
