CALGARY, May 27, 2013 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or the "Company") (DXE, TSX-V) today filed with Canadian securities authorities its First Quarter Financial Statements and Management's Discussion and Analysis for the period ending March 31, 2013. Copies of the filed documents may be obtained through www.sedar.com, DualEx's website www.dualexen.com or by emailing DualEx at email@example.com.
During the first quarter, production averaged 450 mcfe/d, primarily from the Company's Penészlek gas property in northeast Hungary, which, based on continued strong European natural gas prices, generated an operating netback of $7.08/mcfe.
In April 2013 the Company announced it had entered into an agreement to increase its interest in PetroHungaria kft, the Company's partially owned operating subsidiary in Hungary. DualEx purchased the 29.56% interest for cash consideration of $360,000. The purchase, now closed, increases DualEx's interest in PetroHungaria to 70%. PetroHungaria operates the 43.38 km2 Penészlek II Mining Plot in northeast Hungary, which includes two producing natural gas wells. DualEx's net share of Penészlek production is currently averaging 850 mcfe per day.
In Tunisia, the Company reported that its application for a one year extension to the Bouhajla exploration permit has been approved. The initial period is now set to expire on April 29, 2014. The Company anticipates drilling of the first exploration well at Bouhajla, BHN-1, to start within the next week, after some delays during rig move and set-up. The BHN-1 well will be drilled on the Bouhajla North prospect to a planned total depth of 2,545 metres in order to evaluate a Cretaceous Abiod target, which is analogous to the Sidi el Kilani oilfield twenty-five kilometers to the east. The well is expected to take four to six weeks to reach total depth.

Where amounts are expressed on a thousand cubic feet equivalent (mcfe) basis, one barrel of oil has been converted at a ratio one barrel of oil to six thousand cubic feet. Mcfe's may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A mcfe conversion ratio of one barrel of oil to six thousand cubic feet is based on an energy equivalent conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
