Stocks in this article: NBL PDCE SYRG

PLATTEVILLE, Colo., Aug. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Synergy Resources Corporation (NYSE Mkt: SYRG), a U.S. oil and gas exploration and production company focused on the Denver- Julesburg (D-J) Basin, has issued a mid-quarter update on its drilling and production activity. 

Vertical Drilling ActivitySynergy recently reached a major milestone by drilling its 100 th operated well, the Coyle 34-ND. Located in the Wattenberg Field, the well was spudded on July 30. The Coyle prospect is earmarked for eight new wells, with drilling in progress and scheduled to be completed by the end of September.

Since June 1, the beginning of the company's 2012 fourth fiscal quarter, 10 wells have been drilled, with seven more scheduled for drilling by the end of August. Of the 10 drilled, seven were drilled in June and July at the Margil SE prospect. The rig was moved to the Coyle prospect where it is drilling the fourth well on an eight well pad. Synergy is currently using a second drilling rig to drill two wells at its Greeley Airport prospect.

During the course of its 2012 drilling program, Synergy expects to have drilled a total of 51 wells. This total, plus Synergy's working interest in new wells drilled by other operators, will increase its total holdings to approximately 207 gross wells and 159 net wells by August 31, 2012.  

Horizontal Drilling and Production Activity A significant event in the previous quarter was the completion of the company's first horizontal well drilled in partnership with Noble Energy (NYSE Mkt: NBL). The company has since participated in four additional horizontal wells in the Niobrara formation and has agreed to participate in eight more horizontal wells to be drilled by various operators.

Among these were two horizontal wells, Leffler 24-1H and Leffler 14-1H, which were drilled in partnership with PDC Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: PDCE). The initial 60 day average rate for Leffler 24-1H was 226 barrels of oil per day (bbls/d) and 533 mcf of gas per day (mcf/d).  For Leffler 14-1H, the initial 60 day average rate was 269 bbls/d and 404 mcf/d. Synergy owns a 27.9% working interest in Leffler 24-1H and a 6.1% working interest in Leffler 14-1H.
