Dover Petroleum Announces Six Wells Drilled in Wyoming; Updates Egyptian Project

    TORONTO, Aug. 2 /CNW/ -- Dover Petroleum Corp. (OTC: DVPC) today
announced that its wholly owned subsidiary, Slaterdome, Inc., and its
exploration and development partners have set production casings in six wells
as part of its summer drilling production at the Slater Dome Field in Wyoming.
 Gross production at the Slater Dome Field averaged better than 800 Mcf of
natural gas per day during July, compared to 250 Mcf per day in previous
    "The results of the 2007 drilling program have been very encouraging,
including drilling wells 1.50 miles from the existing Slater Dome production,
which gives us a much larger developmental area," said Robert Salna, Dover
Petroleum CEO.  "Production levels will increase further as the new wells that
are drilled are connected to the pipeline."
    Slaterdome's ownership amounts to a net working and operating rights
interest of approximately 33.33% in the Slater Dome Area.
    In its project in Egypt, Dover Petroleum said that the EWA-4Xwell is
progressing as planned.  The well is an onshore well location and is being
deviated to test the offshore Raha formation and a large light oil target in
the Nubian Sandstone reservoir in the Gulf of Suez, which forms the
significant reservoir in several major oilfields.  The well spudded 11th July
and is currently drilling at 2,200 feet at an angle of 41A:. The current
drilling anticipates that 13 3/8" casing will be set in the next few days and
then Dover will continue drilling the well which will deviate up to an angle
of 65A: from the vertical.  Dover anticipates that the well will reach target
depth which is expected to be below 7,100 ft (drilled depth) or 4,180 ft
vertical depth in about 20 days time.
