Dejour Energy Inc. Operations Update Q1 2013

Dejour Energy Inc. (NYSE MKT: DEJ / TSX: DEJ), an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America's Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, today provides an update on field operations at its Woodrush oil production facility, Northern BC and its Piceance properties in Western Colorado.

Peace River Arch, NE BC:

Further to our Woodrush Update in Q2 2012, we are now able to report that current February oil production is averaging 350 Barrels of Oil per Day “BOPD” (gross) up more than 40% from the average oil production rate in 2012. Currently, gross field production is averaging 500 Barrels Oil Equivalent per Day “BOEPD.” Dejour currently owns 75% of this production.

“Dejour is pleased to report that oil production continues to increase after more than one year of continuous water injection and remediation work. The focus of activity at Woodrush now is to improve on recent production levels while continuing to reduce monthly operating costs,” says Hal Blacker, Dejour COO.

Piceance Basin, NW Colorado:

At the Company’s South Rangely project, the discovery well is on line producing at the contract sales rate of 250 MCF/d. The Company plans include a review of expansion alternatives with a view to initiate the drilling of an Hz production well by mid- 2014. Dejour maintains a 70% interest in the balance of this unit.

At the Company’s 72% owned Kokopelli project, preparations are underway to drill and case three additional wells and complete four wells into pipe. All necessary permits have been issued for this phase of development. The drill rig has been contracted to move in on the 18 th of March, with an anticipated initial well spud date of the 22 nd of March. Dejour, as operator, will be drilling 100% of these 3 new wells, in conjunction with the drilling fund capital previously announced.

Of significant interest to the Company is a recent announcement by WPX Energy of a successfully completed Lower Mancos (Niobrara) Hz producer, in Garfield County, that has averaged 12 MMCF/d of restricted flow production during the first 30 days. Additionally, WPX has announced its intention to drill 2 additional Hz wells in 2013. This is the 14 th Mancos Hz to be drilled, completed and tested in the Piceance. Other Mancos HZ wells are in various stages of evaluation. The encouraging production results of these new wells indicate that the Piceance Basin recoveries, including the Niobrara/Mancos, offer the potential to at least double the net reserves available here, with improved economics. WPX has recently iterated that the Piceance continues to demonstrate that it is a ‘world class asset’ region. Dejour has over 7,500 net acres of land prospective for Niobrara/Mancos contingent resources in this Basin. This current WPX discovery is situated between Dejour’s Kokopelli and Roan Creek leaseholds.
