Questerre launches French shale drilling video


CALGARY, July 22 /CNW Telbec/ - Questerre Energy Corporation ("Questerre" or the "Company") (TSX,OSE:QEC) launched a video today explaining how natural gas is extracted from shale rock in the St. Lawrence Lowlands. The video, available in both French and English at, provides factual information on the horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing processes used in Québec.

"This French language video is the first of its kind. It is an excellent tool to explain shale gas processes and demonstrates Questerre's commitment to transparency in all of our operations," says Michael Binnion, President and CEO of Questerre Energy.

Questerre was the first-mover in Québec with our current land position taken in 1998. The Company holds over one million gross acres in the St. Lawrence Lowlands. With our partners, Questerre has drilled 9 wells and completed 25 hydraulic fractures in Québec. Netherland, Sewell & Associates, Inc., ("NSAI") an independent reservoir engineering firm based in Texas, estimates that the recoverable gas from Questerre's net acreage is in the range of 4.28 Tcf, an amount that could meet the needs of Quebeckers for the next 20 years.

"Our small company had a dream that natural gas in the St. Lawrence Lowlands could make Quebec energy independent and create a local industry with high paying jobs. Although we are still in the exploration phase, we believe that we are very close to seeing our dream become a reality. We want Quebeckers to have the facts they need to make informed choices about how to safely and responsibly develop this resource."

The video is available on the Questerre website at
