Enhanced Oil Resources Inc. Provides Milnesand CO(2) Pilot Update

    HOUSTON, April 22 /CNW/ - Enhanced Oil Resources, Inc. (TSX-V: EOR) today
provides the following update on the Milnesand CO(2) Pilot.
    Since September 1st, 2008, approximately 80 million cubic feet (MMCF) of
CO(2) has been injected in the Company's 40-acre, 5-spot test pattern. Current
oil production attributed to CO(2) injection is 33-38 BOPD and the trend
continues to improve. Through injection optimization, the Company continues to
find the current oil response encouraging and ahead of the initial modeled
predictions. Based on this response, the Company's technical team estimates
the CO(2) pilot is close to reaching its intended objective of proving the
applicability of tertiary oil recovery at the Company's wholly owned 6,800
acre Milnesand San Andres Field. The initial CO(2) slug injection phase is
expected to reach completion by the beginning of Q3 2009 where it will then
switch to the water-alternating-gas (WAG) phase evaluation stage of the CO(2)
    The Milnesand San Andres CO(2) pilot flood is located approximately 8
miles south east of the Company owned Chaveroo San Andres Field. Together,
these two San Andres fields are located in Roosevelt and Chaves Counties, New
Mexico along the northern margin of the Permian Basin. Several ongoing San
Andres CO(2) floods are operating along the Texas side of the basin and the
Milnesand pilot is the first such CO(2) pilot to be initiated on the New
Mexico side. The Company's independent EOR consultants, Advanced Resources
International (ARI), completed a proprietary study of these fields for the
Company and in reports dated 7th January, 2007 and 9th October, 2007 has
estimated that these two San Andres fields could recover an additional 53
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 these fields have the potential, once fully flooded, to reach an EOR peak
production rate of over 15,000 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 currently not
considered proven.
    A brief overview and Milnesand CO(2) Pilot Summary is located on our
website. www.enhancedoilres.com.
    Additionally, the Company continues to see improvement in our overall oil
production with an average daily volume greater than 200 BOPD for
approximately the past 45 days through continued optimization of fluid levels
and well cycling.
