GeoPetro Resources Company Provides Update On The Cook Inlet LEA #1 Well

Linc reported that gas from LEA #1 was sampled from 31 intervals from depths of 1,500 feet to the total depth of 6,323 feet. The completed analysis of that gas confirmed that all 31 samples contain pure, dry natural gas (methane: CH4) in the range of 99% to 100%. Natural gas of this purity does not require treatment or conditioning before delivering it to market. The well is located approximately 1.5 miles from a major pipeline capable of carrying the gas to market.

The adverse weather and freezing conditions in Anchorage prevented Linc from completing the planned flow tests over the Christmas period.  These severe weather conditions can alter the results of the flow test and significantly increase testing costs. The Operator is planning to carry out these tests as soon as the severe cold temperatures of the Alaskan winter have passed.  The Operator has reported that they are aiming to have a Flow Test Rig on site in late March 2011.

Stuart J. Doshi, President and CEO of GeoPetro Resources Company, said, "The recent announcement by Linc on the LEA #1 is promising.  We are excited about the potential of a commercial gas discovery in Alaska.  This could be the beginning of an aggressive drilling program on the Alaska Leases."

In addition to testing LEA #1 and continuing to develop the Point Mackenzie Block, Linc Energy has confirmed that it will push ahead with the start up of phase two of the Alaskan natural gas drilling program by the middle of this year in the Trading Bay Block leases which are located on the northwest side of the Cook Inlet approximately 70 miles from the site of LEA #1.  These leases hold a number of promising prospects that Linc plans to aggressively pursue.
