Reece's first Bakken well a success



    MEDICINE HAT, AB, June 6 /CNW/ - Reece Energy Exploration Corp.
(TSX-V/RXR) ("Reece") is pleased to announce that its first exploratory Bakken
well has been successfully tested for oil. As previously announced, the well
(50% net to Reece) penetrated the Bakken formation for the full lateral
section, extending approximately 1,400 meters horizontally. Oil was detected
in the majority of the samples and "oil over the shaker" was observed during
drilling. The well has been tested over the past six days with satisfactory
oil recovery without fracture treatment. Reece and its partner will evaluate
the well in the coming weeks.
    "We are very pleased to have resource success in the first of our three
exploratory Bakken areas. This success will help to prove up the 6,000 gross
acres of Joint venture lands in the immediate area and bolsters our optimism
for the our other two Bakken project areas," said Lorne Swalm the President
and CEO of Reece.
    As of today's date, the drilling rig is moving to the Company's second
Bakken location to commence drilling in the second of the three larger land
blocks acquired by Reece and its joint venture partner in the area.
