DualEx settles legal dispute regarding producing gas property


    CALGARY, Aug. 6 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. (DXE, TSX-V),
through its wholly owned subsidiary, Winslow Resources Inc., ("Winslow") is
pleased to announce that it has settled and finalized its outstanding legal
claim with regard to a producing gas property in southwest Saskatchewan.
    Pursuant to the Settlement Agreement, varying working interests in rights
below the base of the Milk River formation in approximately 40 sections of
contiguous land in the Leader area reverted back to Winslow. Included in the
property is an 18.75% non-operated working interest in a recently discovered
Viking natural gas pool, with three wells currently producing at a restricted
rate of 1.77 MMcf/day (55 BOE/day net to Winslow). As part of the settlement
terms, Winslow agreed to fund approximately $500,000 of infrastructure and
facility costs.
    Martin & Brusset Associates has undertaken an independent reserve
evaluation of the property and has provided a NI 51-101 compliant reserve
report, effective June 30, 2009, outlining Company interest proved developed
producing ("PDP") reserves of 372 MMcf and Company interest proved plus
probable ("P+P") reserves of 780 MMcf, and a corresponding estimated net
present value of $2.6MM, discounted at 10% (such estimated value does not
represent fair market value).
    DualEx will be reviewing this property's role in the context of its
predominantly internationally focused portfolio, which may include further
development and/or exploration drilling, or divestiture.
    Garry Hides, DualEx's President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased
with the settlement of this outstanding claim. Notwithstanding this asset is
outside our primary focus area, it is certainly accretive to our shareholders.
Acquisition metrics are very attractive at approximately $9,100 per flowing
BOE/day and $8.06 per PDP BOE reserves ($3.84 per P+P BOE reserves)."

    DualEx Energy International Inc. is an oil and gas exploration company
with operations in the greater Mediterranean area. DualEx's common shares
