Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Provides Corporate and Operations Update

HOUSTON, Dec. 8 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today provides the following update on corporate and operational activity.

As previously reported the Company has been actively pursuing a reactivation program at the Company's 98.5% owned Crossroads Siluro-Devonian Unit in Lea County, New Mexico. As last reported the Company had increased production at Crossroads from 36 BOPD during July 2008 (at time of purchase) to approximately 290 BOPD during the first week of November. Average production for the month of November was 281 BOPD while Company wide production averaged 350 BOPD during that period. Since our last update we have reactivated the 106 well and have installed a larger submersible pump at the 303 well increasing production to approximately 390 bopd at Crossroads. The Company continues to review additional work over and recompletion opportunities within the Crossroads unit and anticipates acting on some of those high ranked opportunities within the next 2 months.

Mr. Barry Lasker reports "We continue to have positive results at our Crossroads field with current production increasing by approximately 100 BOPD with these latest workovers. Our operational review has identified 4 additional workover candidates that could, if successful, add to our daily production. We have previously reported that the Company is generating positive cash from operations as a result of increasing oil production, improved oil pricing and reductions in corporate overhead costs. The 350 BOPD rate for the month of November was an historical high for the Company and we will continue to press forward with our reactivation program at Crossroads, Milnesand and Chaveroo fields to further add to this number."
