Oct 24, 2012, 12:08 ET from Encore Energy, Inc.

BOWLING GREEN, Ky., Oct. 24, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Encore Energy, Inc. provided the following report for recent lease acquisition transactions made and services available in the Utica Shale of Eastern Ohio.

Serving as an advisor to and representative of producers and industry mineral owners and their acreage in the Utica Shale, otherwise known as the "producers' consortium", Encore has recently closed on the sale of certain acreage tracts and is in the process of closing the sale and acquisition of additional acreage tracts located in the oil / wet gas window across three townships of Eastern Morgan and Northern Washington Counties.  The majority of this acreage is HBP (held by production) and off-set to Anadarko's Noble County production in Brookfield and Sharon townships.  One particular 1,300-acre contiguous tract is located just about 3 miles from Anadarko's production and surrounded by Anadarko's lease acreage.

As an experienced horizontal well operator, Encore's team has the proven track record and industry relationships necessary to provide a "win win" result for Utica operators and mineral owners alike.  Encore works directly with the operator and mineral owner(s) to piece together select tracts for horizontal operations.

Encore's available acreage includes a featured property of 10,000 +/- contiguous acres HBP for lease, or JV development, in Washington, Athens and Meigs Counties located off-set to "Utica vertical well pilot program(s)" that report increasing oil shows from a fracture treatment and TOC (total organic content) estimates of 2 to 3 times higher than original reports.

If you would like to find out more about Encore's services or available Utica properties for lease, please contact Steve Stengell or Joe Turner at (855) 238-1242, or e-mail us directly at info@encore-energy.com
