Eagle Energy Inc. Announces Ongoing Production Results from its First North Texas Well

CALGARY, Alberta, Dec. 19, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — (TSX:EGL):  Eagle Energy Inc. (“Eagle”) is pleased to announce that, one month after initial production, the oil, natural gas and natural gas liquids rates from its first North Texas horizontal well continue to perform at budgeted levels.  Currently, the well is producing 450 barrels of oil equivalent per day (350 barrels per day of oil).

Wayne Wisniewski, Eagle’s President and Chief Executive Officer, stated, “We completed the installation of permanent production facilities by December 8th and are pleased to see these production levels especially in light of the fact that only 18 of the 28 planned frack stages are producing.”

The well is producing from the middle Pennsylvanian formation.  The above rates are based on stabilized production rates after the production facilities were installed.

Oil and Gas Advisories

The short production rates disclosed in this news release are not necessarily indicative of long-term performance or ultimate well recovery rates.

Note about Forward-Looking Statements

Certain of the statements made and information contained in this news release are forward-looking statements and forward-looking information (collectively referred to as “forward-looking statements”) within the meaning of Canadian securities laws.  All statements other than statements of historic fact are forward-looking statements.  Eagle cautions investors that important factors could cause Eagle’s actual results to differ materially from those projected, or set out, in any forward-looking statements included in this news release.

In particular, and without limitation, this news release contains forward-looking statements pertaining to production from the first well Eagle has drilled in North Texas and that it continues to perform at budgeted levels.

With respect to forward-looking statements contained in this news release, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things:  future production estimates and operating costs; future crude oil, NGL, natural gas prices, differentials and weighting; future foreign exchange rates.

Eagle’s actual results could differ materially from those anticipated in these forward-looking statements as a result of the following risk factors and those in Eagle’s Annual Information Form (“AIF”) dated March 16, 2017 for the year ended December 31, 2016, which is available on Eagle’s website at and on SEDAR at the volatility of crude oil, NGL and natural gas prices; commodity supply and demand; fluctuations in foreign exchange and interest rates; inherent risks and changes in costs associated in the development of petroleum properties; ultimate recoverability of reserves; timing, results and costs of drilling and production activities; availability of financing and capital; and new regulations and legislation that apply to Eagle and the operations of its subsidiaries.

As a result of these risks, actual production results from the North Texas wells may differ materially from any projections of future performance or results expressed or implied by these forward‐looking statements.  Eagle’s production rates are subject to change in light of ongoing results and economic and industry conditions.  New factors emerge from time to time, and it is not possible for management to predict all of these factors or to assess, in advance, the impact of each such factor on Eagle’s business, or the extent to which any factor, or combination of factors, may cause actual results to differ materially from those contained in any forward-looking statement.

Undue reliance should not be placed on forward-looking statements, which are inherently uncertain, are based on estimates and assumptions, and are subject to known and unknown risks and uncertainties (both general and specific) that contribute to the possibility that the future events or circumstances contemplated by the forward-looking statements will not occur.  These statements speak only as of the date of this news release and may not be appropriate for other purposes. 

Note Regarding Barrel of Oil Equivalency

This news release contains disclosure expressed as barrels of oil equivalent.  All oil and natural gas equivalency volumes have been derived using the conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet (“Mcf”) of natural gas to one barrel (“bbl”) of oil.  Equivalency measures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.  A conversion ratio of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.  In addition, given that the value ratio based on the current price of oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalent of six to one, utilizing a boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl would be misleading as an indication of value.
