Saxon Announces Flowing Completion in Eumont No. 2 Development well

    DALLAS, Aug. 17 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd. ("Saxon") (PINK SHEETS:
State No. 2 development well in the Urssey Tank field of Lea County, New
Mexico was successfully completed as a flowing oil well on August 12, 2009.
During the first 24 hours, perforations at an undisclosed depth in the Seven
Rivers formation were gauged at various choke sizes and tubing pressures with
rates ranging from 11 to 52 barrels of oil per hour with no water. The
operator plans to decrease the choke size to maximize ultimate oil recovery
and produce this well at approximately 150 barrels of oil per day. Saxon has a
15 % working and 12.5 % net revenue interest in this well. First oil sales
have occurred and Saxon anticipates first revenue during the late third
quarter, 2009.
    Richard G. Green, President and CEO of Saxon said "We are pleased the
Eumont State No. 2 has been successfully drilled and completed as a flowing
oil well in Urssey Tank field. The Eumont State No. 1 well continues to
produce in excess of 120 barrels of oil per day and has averaged over 4,100
barrels of oil sales per month since original completion in May 2008. The
Eumont State No. 2 well gives Saxon and our partners another excellent
drainage point for this exciting field discovery. Our group will monitor the
performance of both Eumont wells to determine if additional drilling is
warranted. Saxon continues to develop our core domestic assets and increase
cash flow while simultaneously maturing our high potential European projects."
