CALGARY, April 5 /CNW/ - Result Energy Inc. "Result", (TSX-'RTE')
provides the following corporate update:
During the first quarter of 2007, Result participated in 6 gross wells
(3.2 net), resulting in 4 gross (1.7 net) potential gas producers, and 2 gross
(1.5 net) dry and abandoned wells. The Company also participated in the
setting of surface casing on 1 gross (0.25 net) impact exploratory well in a
winter seasonal area, and is expected to complete drilling and testing
operations in the first quarter of 2008.
At Clearhills, Alberta, Result production tested three new natural gas
wells on its Triassic exploitation project. These wells flowed at gross
combined rates of 2.0 MMcfd. Two of these wells are expected to come on-stream
in early April, and should add approximately 115 boed net to the Company. The
third well will be tied in at a future date.
At Kakwa, Alberta, Result participated in a 3,300 meter 'deep basin' gas
well. Six prospective pay intervals have now been completed and fracture
stimulated. Further flow testing and tie-in operations are scheduled for the
fourth quarter of 2007. Result holds a 20% working interest in this project.
At Eureka, Alberta, Result and partners acquired mineral interests in an
additional 4 gross (3.0 net) sections of undeveloped land on the Company's
Devonian and Triassic play fairway. Result also purchased four square miles of
3-D trade seismic to assist in the evaluation of these lands. The Company
expects that these initiatives will lead to several drilling locations in the
third and fourth quarters of 2007.
At, Pembina-Modeste, Alberta, Result has entered into a 4-section farm-in
deal with a major Royalty Trust to continue its exploration program on the
Viking channel gas project. Two firm locations (one each on farm-in lands and
proprietary lands) have been selected for drilling in the second quarter 2007.
The Company's after-earned interest in these prospects will average 50%.
At Mearon, Alberta, Result is participating in an impact exploratory well
to test for Slave Point and Gilwood gas potential. The location is situated
approximately 10 kilometers southeast of the prolific Ladyfern Slave Point
field. Well drilling operations commenced in the first quarter of 2007, but
due to winter-only access in this area, the final drilling and testing
operations will be completed in the first quarter of 2008. By participating in
this well, Result will earn six sections of mineral rights at a working
interest of 25%.
As at February 28, 2007, Result's total corporate production volumes were
approximately 1,400 boed (90% weighted to natural gas) as tabulated from raw
field receipts. An estimated additional 150 boed (100% weighted to natural
gas) remains tested behind pipe and/or has previously been on production.
Several pipeline and wellsite equipping projects are scheduled to be completed
by early April. Upon completion of these projects, the Company expects its
production to reach 1,550 boed.

particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of six thousand
cubic feet per barrel (6mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence
is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at
the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. All
boe conversions herein are derived from converting gas to oil in the ratio mix
of six thousand cubic feet of gas to one barrel of oil.
