Double Eagle Petroleum Co. Updates 2011/ 2012 Exploration And Development Plans

Stocks in this article: DBLE

DENVER, Aug. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Double Eagle Petroleum Co. (NASDAQ: DBLE) announced today an update to its 2011 drilling program and is providing guidance on its 2012 expected drilling programs.  The Company's development program will be focusing on its two major development fields, the Atlantic Rim CBM and the Pinedale Anticline.  The major exploration projects are the Niobrara oil shale target in the Atlantic Rim and the Main Fork Unit in north east Utah. Total estimated capital spending for 2011 projects will be approximately $30 million.

2011 Field Development

In 2011, the Company will be increasing its total net well count in the Catalina CBM Unit 25% by drilling approximately 14 gross (13 net) coal bed methane (CBM) wells in this unit to add to the existing 70 gross (51 net) CBM producing wells.  Twelve of these wells are in an exploratory area and the Company will have a 100% working interest in these wells.  The Company will have a 73% working interest in the two development wells in the existing unit participating area.  

Anadarko will be drilling 25 exploration wells in the newly formed Spy Glass Unit which includes the Sun Dog and Doty Mountain participation areas. The exploration wells for 2011 were required by the Spy Glass Unit agreement. The Company will have no interest or costs associated with these wells, but the data obtained will be valuable in determining the nature and extent of the CBM field, which will aid future field development.

The approved Atlantic Rim Environmental Impact Study allows for a total 1,800 CBM wells and 200 conventional (non-coal bed methane) wells. Double Eagle, together with Anadarko Petroleum, are the operators of various units in the Atlantic Rim and as of June 30, 2011 a total of 400 CBM wells have been drilled (no conventional wells). Currently, the Company has 123 approved CBM drilling permits and Anadarko has approximately 30 approved CBM drilling permits for future drilling in the Atlantic Rim.

Also, Double Eagle will participate in the drilling of 16 (gross) new production wells in the Mesa Unit on the Pinedale Anticline, which is an increase of 10 (gross) wells from the initial estimate provided by the operator of the Mesa Units, QEP.  The Company has an estimated 8.5% working interest in these planned wells.
