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

Stocks in this article: DBLE

2011 Exploration Projects

The Company also plans to drill one Niobrara Oil Shale well in which Double Eagle will have an estimated working interest of 93%. The Company initially planned two Niobrara exploratory wells but due to certain lease holders in the area not cooperating in drilling plans, the Company determined that the best location and opportunity to gain formation knowledge was to drill in a section which the Company controlled.  The Company is awaiting final permit approval for this well.

The Company also is evaluating further development of the Main Fork Unit Project (formerly known as Christmas Meadows/Table Top Unit). The Company previously drilled the Table Top Unit #1 well in 2007. The Company is working with a major integrated oil and gas company that has option farm-in rights to advance further unit delineation, assist with costs related to seismic, environmental analysis and, if necessary, an exploratory well. Assuming the farm-in right is exercised; Double Eagle will have a 12%-16% working interest after payout.

Prior seismic data has been reprocessed and a LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) survey has been conducted. Preliminary development well locations, pipelines and roads have been identified as part of a full field development environmental impact study being conducted by the USFS. In 2011, surveying and associated archeological and biological studies are being conducted along with a source test in preparation for a potential 2D seismic acquisition program in 2012.

2012 development projects

Looking ahead into 2012, the Company's initial plans are to continue development in our two main fields.  In the Atlantic Rim, the Company plans to drill 14 new CBM production wells in the Catalina unit, 25 new CBM wells in the Anadarko operated Doty Mountain Unit and, depending upon the results of the initial test well, several Niobrara wells.  In the Pinedale Anticline, the Company anticipates 16 new wells to be drilled in 2012. The Main Fork Project is expected to proceed as mentioned above.
