Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. Announces Start-Up of CO(2) Injection at Milnesand (San Andres) Unit, Roosevelt County, New Mexico

    HOUSTON, Sept. 2 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today
announced that CO(2) injection at the Company's wholly owned Milnesand (San
Andres) Unit oil field located in Roosevelt County, New Mexico commenced on
August 25, 2008 and over the last 7 days injection has stabilized at a daily
rate of approximately 0.4 million cubic feet per day (mmcfpd).
    As previously announced, the Milnesand (San Andres) Unit covers
5,000 acres in a 5,500 acre mature oilfield that is currently producing
approximately 70 barrels of oil per day and has produced approximately
12 million barrels of oil to date, leading to only 13% recovery of the
original 95 million barrels of oil in place. The Company's independent EOR
consultants, Advanced Resources International (ARI), completed a proprietary
screening study of the field for the Company and in a report dated March 19,
2007 has estimated that the field could recover an additional 18 million
barrels of oil using state-of-the-art CO(2) injection processes. These are
categorized as contingent resources under NI51-101. ARI also estimates that
the field has the potential, once fully flooded, to reach an EOR peak
production rate of over 5,000 barrels of oil per day. Under NI51-101
Contingent Resources are those quantities of oil and gas estimated on a given
date to be potentially recoverable from known accumulations but are currently
not economic.
    Mr. Barry Lasker reports "The start up of CO(2) injection at Milnesand is
a milestone event for the Company. The anticipated positive response from the
pilot project will allow significant value to be added to the Company and will
enable the Company to proceed with full-field CO(2) flood development as soon
as our St Johns pipeline is in operation. As we have previously stated, our
mission is to build a reserve base in New Mexico where significant EOR
potential exists and to leverage our vast CO(2) resource into opportunities
that will add significant value to the Company. We will provide updates over
the coming months as we await a positive flooding response."
