Mountainview Energy Ltd. brings on two new Three Forks/Torquay wells with initial production rates of 401 boe/d and 291 boe/d respectively in its 12 Gage Project

CUT BANK, MT, May 20, 2014 /CNW/ - Mountainview Energy Ltd. (TSXV: MVW) ("Mountainview" or the "Company") provides an operational update on its two-well drilling program.

Reistad Well Pad (Reistad 26-35S-1H & Reistad 23-14-1H)

Mountainview is pleased to announce that it has placed both the Reisatd 26-35S-1H, (the "Reistad 26 Well") and the Reistad 23-14-1H, (the "Reistad 23 well") wells on production with artificial lift.  Both wells were drilled in the Three Forks (Torquay) formation with ~10,000 ft horizontal laterals from a dual pad located in the southern portion of the 12 Gage Project. The wells were both completed using a 32-stage plug and perforation fracture stimulation.  According to field measurements, the initial 7 day average production for the Reistad 26 Well, which was still recovering frac load water, was 401 boe/d gross (398 boe/d net), comprised of 90% oil. The Reistad 26 Well has produced for approximately 40 days averaging 337 boe/d gross (334 boe/d net), comprised of 90% oil.  The Company has a 99.2% working interest in the Reistad 26 well.

The 7 day average Initial Production rate for the Reistad 23 Well, which was still recovering frac load water, was 291 boe/d gross (269 boe/d net) comprised of 90% oil. The Reistad 23 Well has produced for approximately 53 days averaging 241 boe/d gross (223 boe/d net) comprised of 90% oil.  The Company has a 92.54% working interest in the Reistad 23 well.

The Company is very encouraged, having de-risked the Southern extent of its 12 Gage Project.  The Reistad 26 well is the southern-most Three Forks (Torquay) lateral drilled and initial production rates met company expectations for wells in the 12 Gage Project.

Company Production

Mountainview's Working Interest Production Exit Rate for the 1st quarter of 2014 was 1,284 boe/d, providing positive cash flow for ongoing operations. Mountainview continues to leverage the strength of the management team to provide production and reserve growth.
