Dejour Highlights 2009 Year End Results

April 1, 2010

Dejour Enterprises released highlights for year-end 2009 in a press release on March 31, 2010 after the market closed. Dejour had a very productive 2009 and has come out of the gate strongly for 2010 as evidenced by their last two press releases.

Among the list of milestones achieved in 2009 Dejour announced the following:

  • Increased Net Proved Reserves by more than 3,100% from slightly more than 3 BCFE to more than 93 BCFE.
  • Increased Net Proved and Probable Reserves by more than 3,500% from slightly more than 6 BCFE to more than 217 BCFE.
  • Reduced debt from $18.3 million to $6.2 million and raised $5 million of equity under challenging market conditions
  • Annual production for 2009 averaged 456 BOE/d, an increase of 78% from 256 BOE/d in 2008

And subsequent to year end 2009, Dejour drilled two new discoveries (1.5 net) at Woodrush Northeast British Columbia, Canada. One is a Gething gas discovery on-line at approximately 1MMcf/d. The second is a light oil discovery currently producing in excess of 400 BOE/d, raising Woodrush gross production to more than 1,000 BOE/d, 50%+ oil (75% net to Dejour). Dejour plans to drill one to two more wells at Woodrush in 2010.

Dejour looks to be solidly back in the game with materially increased reserve/production numbers and plenty of drilling planned for 2010 and beyond. We have seen the stock rebound somewhat from recent lows but see plenty of additional upside to the Dejour story from here as they prepare to build out several existing production areas and explore several new prospect areas over the next few quarters. When the energy markets strengthen (and we feel that is only a matter of time as many analysts are predicting a decline in overall worldwide oil production over the next few years – which we expect to have a big effect on energy pricing) Dejour should be well positioned to further increase shareholder value going forward.

Dejour Oil Discovery Tests Over 500 Barrels of Oil per Day

March 23, 2010

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.

Calgary Alberta, March 17, 2010 –– Dejour Enterprises Ltd. (NYSE-Amex: DEJ / TSX: DEJ) today announces new oil and gas discoveries at its 75% owned Woodrush project in the Peace River Arch, NE British Columbia.

Dejour Provides US Projects Update

DENVER–(BUSINESS WIRE)–The Board of Dejour Enterprises Ltd. (NYSE-AMEX: DEJ / TSX: DEJ) has approved the 2010 operating plan for Dejour USA, which concentrates on low risk well defined development opportunities on its properties located primarily in the natural gas prone Piceance Basin.
