Desmarais Plans More Drilling at Barrhead

TSX Venture Exchange Symbol: DES

CALGARY, Jan. 4 /CNW/ - Desmarais Energy Corporation (TSXV: DES) (the "Corporation" or "Desmarais") has completed the tie-in of a significant new well in its Barrhead core area.  The well was drilled and evaluated in September/October 2010, and the Corporation expects "new pool discovery status" to be received following the filing of initial production data.  Further information and production rates will be made available once stabilized data becomes available.  The Alberta New Well Royalty Reduction Program of 5% will apply to this well for the first 12 months.

Desmarais has an inventory of 5 additional wells to re-activate following minor work-overs, and 1 well to evaluate which is standing cased.  The Corporation plans further drilling in Q1 2011 to determine the size and potential of the latest discovery.
