Trans Energy Announces Production Results On Its Whipkey #2H Horizontal Marcellus Well And Provides Operational Update

ST. MARYS, W.Va., July 14 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Trans Energy, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: TENG) announced today that the first 30 days of production from its Whipkey #2H horizontal Marcellus well in Marshall County, West Virginia averaged 4,450 Mcfe per day.

Additionally, as of July 10, the Company initiated the process of drilling out the final plugs used during the completion process of the Whipkey #1H horizontal Marcellus well.  The Whipkey #1H is on the same pad site as the Whipkey #2H and was drilled with a horizontal lateral of over 3,000 feet and was completed with a 12 stage frac.  

The Company's first horizontal Marcellus well, the Hart #28H in Wetzel County, West Virginia, was, according to records required to be filed with the West Virginia Department of Oil and Gas, the 12th highest producing natural gas well in the State of West Virginia in 2009 out of more than 49,174 producing natural gas wells.  The Hart #28H was turned into a sales line on April 13, 2009.

John G. Corp, President of Trans Energy, said, "We have recently received a drilling permit for the Stout #2H horizontal Marcellus well in Marshall County, West Virginia and have finished clearing and preparing the drilling location and are scheduled to begin drilling in August.  We have also received drilling permits for the Groves #1H and Keaton #1H sites, both of which are also in Marshall County, West Virginia.  We continue to move forward with our plan to rapidly develop our acreage position in the Marcellus shale along with our experienced partner."
