ZaZa Energy Corporation Provides Operational Update And Confirms It Remains On Track To Close On The Sale Of Its French Assets By Year-End

ZaZa Energy Corporation (NASDAQ: ZAZA) today provided operational updates related to its core properties in the Eaglebine and Eagle Ford regions in Texas. The Company also provided further details on its proposed sale of its French assets and confirmed that it remains on track for a closing in December 2012.

Eaglebine and Lower Cretaceous Update

ZaZa owns and operates approximately 88,000 net acres in the Eaglebine, one of the fastest growing and most prolific oil and gas plays in the U.S. ZaZa’s acreage block is located in the highly organic and thickest area of the basin. The Company has begun development in the Lower Eaglebine and is exploring development scenarios associated with its Upper Eaglebine resource potential. Additionally, the Lower Cretaceous section sits below the Upper and Lower Eaglebine targets and has a gross thickness of approximately 1,300’ on the ZaZa acreage block. The Company will spud its first Lower Cretaceous vertical test this month as it evaluates the potential for producing multiple Lower Cretaceous targets in a vertical, comingled development strategy.

As previously announced on November 6, 2012, ZaZa completed drilling and running production casing on its Eaglebine Stingray A-1H well (“Stingray”) in Walker County, Texas (11,780 feet – True Vertical Depth (TVD) / 17,060 feet – Measured Depth). The Company drilled a pilot hole through the objective section (12,242 feet – TVD), took sidewall cores and ran a full suite of logs for the empirical measurement of hydrocarbons in place. ZaZa also announced at that time that it completed drilling a ~4,700-foot, in-zone lateral in the objective section of the Stingray, commenced completion operations, and began hydraulic fracturing operations. Initial pilot drilling, using the Schlumberger ELAN analysis tool, showed 21 BCF and 29 MMBO per section in place and ~4.85 million BOE of oil in place per well bore or ~980,000 BOE/EUR recoverable, applying a recovery factor of 18-20 percent.
