Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Production at 455 BOPD

Jan 05, 2010, 09:00 ET from Enhanced Oil Resources Inc.

HOUSTON, TX, Jan. 5 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ - Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today provides the following update on corporate and operational activity.

As previously reported the Company has been actively pursuing a reactivation program at the Company's 98.5% owned Crossroads Siluro-Devonian Unit in Lea County, New Mexico. As last reported the Company had increased total Company owned production from an average of 186 barrels oil per day (bopd) in July 2009 to 350 bopd in November 2009. Average production for the month of December was 455 BOPD, an increase of 30% over November rates. Since our last update we have reactivated the Crossroads # 307 well and have now moved the workover rig to reactivate the Crossroads # 105 well. The Company continues to review additional workover and recompletion opportunities within the Crossroads Unit and anticipates acting on some of those high ranked opportunities within the next 2 months.

Mr. Barry Lasker reports "We continue to have positive results at our Crossroads field with current production increasing by approximately 100 BOPD with this latest workover. Our operational review has identified 2 additional workover candidates that could, if successful, add to our daily production. We have previously reported that the Company is generating positive cash from operations as a result of increasing oil production, improved oil pricing and reductions in lease operating expenses (per unit of production) and in general and administrative costs. The 455 BOPD average daily rate for the month of December was an historical high for the Company and we will continue to press forward with our reactivation program at Crossroads, Milnesand and Chaveroo fields to further add to this number."
