CALGARY, Jan. 25 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx") (TSX-V: "DXE"), announces that the Al Tayr 101 well, drilled on the Block 17 Concession in Syria, has reached total depth and is being plugged and abandoned following an unsuccessful testing program. The well was spudded on October 7, 2009 and was drilled to a depth of 3,150 meters. The well encountered gas shows throughout the Kurrachine Dolomite section, the main producing horizon within the Ash Shaer and other nearby producing fields. The well was tested, including an acid stimulation program, over two prospective intervals, neither of which flowed gas to surface. The well satisfies the exploration commitment in the first phase of the concession.
DualEx and its partners, Kuwait Foreign Petroleum Exploration Co (KUFPEC) and Stratic Energy Corporation, are evaluating the results of the well to determine the next steps in the exploration program. DualEx holds a 31.67% working interest in Block 17.
DualEx Energy International Inc. is an oil and gas exploration and production company with operations in the greater Mediterranean area. DualEx's common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "DXE".
