CALGARY, April 19 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc.

DualEx, through is subsidiary PetroHungaria kft, has a 42.8% interest in both the PEN-101 and 106 wells.

Interpretation of the seismic has begun and several structures have been identified. Mapping and ranking of these structures will take place over the next several weeks with the goal of selecting a feature or features on which to record additional seismic in advance of selecting a suitable drill target.
