DualEx announces operational update on BHN-1 well in Tunisia

/NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES/

CALGARY, July 18, 2013 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or the "Company") (TSX-V: DXE), today issued the following operational update regarding its BHN-1 exploration well in Tunisia.  As previously announced, the Company has reached total depth of 2745 metres, after penetrating 247 metres of the Abiod chalky limestone formation within the planned target area. Due to wellbore instability issues caused by sloughing shales from formations overlying the Abiod, the Company has deemed it prudent to run the 7" liner to bottom, after which it will then conduct cased-hole wire-line logging operations. Setting and cementing of the liner is currently underway.

The BHN-1 well was spud on June 8, 2013 and is the first exploration well on the Bouhajla Permit. It is being drilled to evaluate a Cretaceous Abiod oil target on the Bouhajla North prospect.
