Recovery Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: RECV), an independent oil and gas exploration and production company with operations and assets in the Denver-Julesburg (DJ) Basin, will present at the Emerging North American Shale Plays Conference in Denver on Wednesday, January 11, at 8:15aMT. Michael A. (Mick) Domenick, Recovery Energy’s Senior Geologist, will deliver the Keynote Address, entitled “Geologic Anomalies in the Northern DJ Basin Niobrara Play.” The emphasis of Mr. Domenick’s keynote address will be to identify anomalies in the Niobrara play, and to discuss what this means for the play beyond current proven fairways. Focusing on geologic and operations data, he will provide evidence that productive Niobrara sweet spots are strongly correlated with tectonic factors, both directly and indirectly. It is hoped the evolution of Niobrara play will benefit from discussion of the unique properties of the Niobrara as characterized by the subject anomalies. His address begins the conference’s dedicated Day One: “Focus on Niobrara Play.” The presentation will be available at the Investors’ section of the company’s website on January 11: www.recoveryenergyco.com. The Emerging North American Shale Plays Conference will be held at the Grand Hyatt Denver in Denver, January 11-13.
