Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Provides Corporate Update

    HOUSTON, June 26 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today
provides the following update on corporate and operational activity.
    At the St. Johns Helium and CO2 field the Company has received
notification from the federal government that the Bureau of Land Management
(BLM) has no objections to the formation of the St. Johns Gas Unit and has
sent a letter to the State of Arizona supporting such Unit. The State of
Arizona approved the Unit agreement on April 8th 2009; however the approval of
the Unit Agreement was subject to the final sanction by the federal government
and review and approval by the State Land Commissioner of any substantive
changes recommended by the federal government.
    The Company continues to produce approximately 210 barrels of oil per day
(bopd) from its oilfields in New Mexico and the Milnesand pilot project
continues with CO2 injection and is performing as expected. Based on current
oil prices the net revenue from our oil production currently covers
approximately 65% of our monthly overhead.
    At Milnesand, the CO2 pilot flood area has been under continuous CO2
injection for ten months and, to date, has injected in excess of 124 million
cubic feet of CO2. The injection of CO2 has resulted in an estimated 2,450
barrels of incremental oil production and continues to show promise. A
decision has now been made to cease injecting CO2 on, or around, July 31st and
switch over to water injection to maintain the flood conformance. We are
beginning to collect all necessary data to initiate a mid year reserve report
that may result in converting resource barrels at Milnesand into proved and
probable reserves.
    The Company also amends the press release dated June 16th, 2009 that it
has, subject to regulatory approval, extended:
    from June 28th; July 9th; July 23rd and July 27th, 2009 to June 30th,
2010 the expiry date of 10,080,600 share purchase warrants entitling the
purchase of up to an aggregate 10,080,600 shares of the Company at a price of
$1.80 per share. These warrants were issued pursuant to a private placement of
20,161,200 units, each unit comprised of 1 common share and 1/2 share purchase
warrant, the last tranche of which closed on July 27th, 2007; and
    from July 4th, 2009 to June 30th, 2010 the expiry date of 3,625,000 share
purchase warrants entitling the purchase of up to an aggregate 3,625,000
shares of the Company at a price of $1.80 per share. These warrants were
issued pursuant to a private placement of 7,250,000 units, each unit comprised
of 1 common share and 1/2 share purchase warrant, which closed on July 4th,
