CALGARY, Nov. 8, 2012 /CNW/ - DualEx Energy International Inc. ("DualEx" or "the Company") (TSX-V: "DXE") announced today that it has awarded a drilling contract to Compagnie Tunisienne de Forage for the land drilling rig CTF-06 to drill the BHN-1 exploration well on the Bouhajla North prospect within the Bouhajla Permit in central Tunisia. The rig is currently finishing operations on a well prior to moving to a new location for another operator, after which it will be mobilized to the BHN-1 location (anticipated to be in the first quarter of 2013).
The BHN-1 well will be drilled to a total depth of 2500 metres to test a Cretaceous Abiod target, which is analogous to the Sidi el Kilani oil field located 25 kilometers east of the Bouhajla North prospect. Long-lead items are now in-country, and location construction is expected to commence in November. DualEx retains 52.5% contractor interest and operatorship of the BHN-1 well.
"Notwithstanding the delays in getting the BHN-1 well spudded, a result of increased drilling activity in Tunisia, we're pleased to have now solidified our position in the drilling queue for the first exploration well on our Tunisian acreage," said DualEx President & CEO Garry Hides.
DualEx Energy International Inc. is an oil and gas exploration and production company with operations in Tunisia and Hungary. DualEx's common shares trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "DXE".
