CALGARY, Alberta–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Dejour Enterprises Ltd. (NYSE-AMEX: DEJ / TSX: DEJ) today releases the results of a 24 hour production test of the new oil discovery at its 75% owned Woodrush project in the Peace River Arch, NE British Columbia that was announced last week.
Production casing was set on Well A-1-I/94-H-02 after it encountered a Halfway oil pool and other productive horizons (See Dejour news release of March 17, 2010). This well was drilled to a newly defined seismic feature north of the original Woodrush oil discovery made in Dejour’s D-91-H well, in 2008. The A-1-I well was subsequently completed in the Halfway sand and flow tested in excess of 500 Barrels of Oil per day (BO/day) of light sour oil during a 24 hour test. Pipelines are now being laid to Dejour’s central production facility. Production is to commence prior to the end of March at initial rates between 300 and 400 BO/day.
This addition boosts the Woodrush gross production to over 1000 BOE/d, approximately 50% oil. Dejour is operator with a 75% WI.
