Marquee Energy Ltd. Achieves 100% Drilling Success On Core Oil Assets And Increases Oil And Liquids Weighting

CALGARY, Jan. 17, 2013 /CNW/ - Marquee Energy Ltd. ("Marquee" or the "Company") (TSXV: MQL) is pleased to provide an update on recent operations across its two key oil projects at Michichi and Lloydminster.

These projects provide Marquee with a strong foundation of high netback oil production and provide a basis for repeatable development potential for the next several years. Following Marquee's fourth quarter disposition of its gas weighted Willesden Green property, Marquee is currently producing greater than 2,300 boe/d (62% oil and liquids). Combined production from the Michichi and Lloydminster core areas now represents almost 70% of corporate production.

Michichi

Marquee is the most active driller in this emerging light oil play having drilled 10 of more than 30 horizontal wells licensed in the Michichi area since July 2011. To date, Marquee has realized a 100% success rate on the 10 (100% working interest) horizontal light oil wells drilled into the Banff and Detrital formations. Eight of these wells are currently on production while the remaining two wells are awaiting completion operations and are expected to be on production in February. The first horizontal well of Marquee's three well fourth quarter program averaged more than 200 boe/d over an initial five day test period and achieved an IP30 of 141 boe/d with oil and liquids weighting close to 90%.

Marquee continues to optimize drilling and completion techniques, including moving to multi-well drilling pads, in order to improve capital cost performance. The Company has recently tested a new frac design with promising results and expects the method can increase productivity from new drills compared to conventional multi-stage fracs and reduce completion costs by as much as 40%.

Marquee continues to expand its land position and seismic database in the area. Through acquisitions and landsales, Marquee now owns more than 118 net sections of operated Crown lands in the area. Marquee also expanded its seismic database at Michichi to 1,281 line kilometers of 2D seismic and 104 km2 of 3D seismic. Analysis of this seismic data in conjunction with ongoing detailed geologic evaluations, including extensive review of regional core data, is contributing to the expansion and de-risking of the Company's prospect inventory.
