DualEx and Partners Spud Gorbehaza No. 1 well in Hungary


    CALGARY, Aug. 18 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. (TSX-V: "DXE")
is pleased to announce that drilling has commenced at the Gorbehaza No. 1
("Gh-1") well in the "Panhandle" region of the Company's Nyirseg North permit
in northeast Hungary. DualEx is participating as to its 12.5% working interest
after having farmed out to Hungarian Horizon Energy Ltd. ("HHE") and JKX Oil
and Gas Plc. ("JKX"). HHE and JKX farmed in on the Panhandle area earning 66
2/3 of DualEx's 37.5% interest with the recording of a 120 square kilometre 3D
seismic survey late last year.
    Gorbehaza No. 1 will be drilled to a total depth of approximately 1300
metres, targeting Pannonian clastic and Miocene volcaniclastic reservoirs
found to be gas-bearing at the HHE/JKX Hajdunanas discovery 2.2 kilometres to
the north. The discovery well, Hajdunanas-1, and the follow up appraisal well,
Hajdunanas-2, were drilled on a four-way dip closure identified on 3D seismic
recorded by HHE/JKX in 2007. Production testing of the wells resulted in an
aggregate flow rate of approximately thirty million cubic feet of natural gas
per day (30 MMcf/d). Overlap of the Panhandle 3D survey with the Hajdunanas 3D
survey provides an excellent tie with the Hajdunanas feature serving as a
template for the Gorbehaza prospect, also a four-way dip closure.
    Drilling is expected to take roughly 10 days with testing to follow.
Partnership interests in the Gorbehaza No. 1 well are DualEx (12.5%), HHE
(Operator, 33.333%), JKX (33.333%), Ascent Resources (20.167%) and Swede
Resources (0.667%).
