Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Announces Production Increase at Crossroads Devonian Unit, Lea County, New Mexico

    HOUSTON, Aug. 10 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today
announces the activation of the Crossroads No. 302 well at the Company's
wholly owned Crossroads Siluro-Devonian Unit in Lea County, New Mexico. The
Crossroads No. 302 was reactivated on July 30th and has averaged approximately
130 barrels of oil per day (BOPD) since production recommenced. The well is
currently producing 120+ BOPD and Unit production has averaged 232 BOPD during
the first 9 days of August. Company wide production has averaged approximately
332 BOPD for the same period. The No. 302 reactivation is one of a series of
capital expenditure projects targeted to increase the Company's daily oil and
gas production. Since the Company's acquisition of the Crossroads
Siluro-Devonian Unit, average daily production has increased 550%.
    In May 2008, at the time of the Company's acquisition, the Crossroads
Unit was producing an average of 36 BOPD. In July 2008, the Company
successfully activated the Crossroads No. 303 well increasing the average
daily production of the Unit to 80 BOPD for the period July 2008 through
February 2009. In February 2009, the Company reactivated the Crossroads No.
202 well with daily production increasing to above 110 BOPD. The latest
reactivation at the No. 302 well has greatly increased daily production to 235
BOPD and is one of up to 5 wells that the Company plans to reactivate over the
next 4 to 6 months. Total expenditure on the 2008/2009 reactivation plan, to
date, has been less than $500,000.
    Mr. Barry Lasker reports, "With our recent successful reactivation of the
Crossroads No. 302 well, the Company has averaged in excess of 320 bopd during
the first 9 days of August. The Company will continue to identify capital
expenditure projects, in Crossroads and elsewhere, that result in near term
positive cash flow and to prudently implement these plans during the current
slowdown in demand for goods and services in the oil industry. Our current
year-to-date operating cost at Crossroads is less than $6 per barrel and at
current oil prices of $70 per barrel the approximate netback to the Company's
interest should be above $45 per barrel. As part of our near term plan to
generate positive cash flow from operations our exploitation efforts are
currently being focused on implementing additional workovers at Crossroads to
increase these high net back barrels."
