CALGARY, Oct. 3, 2014 /CNW/ - Seven Generations Energy Ltd. ("7G" or the "Company") is pleased to announce the results of a recent independent resource evaluation performed by McDaniel & Associates Consultants Ltd. ("McDaniel"). McDaniel prepared the evaluation in compliance with the standards set out in National Instrument 51-101 of the Canadian Securities Administrators and the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook (COGEH). As of the effective date of the most recent assessment, July 1, 2014, McDaniel recognizes Total Best Estimate Contingent Resources of 728 million barrels gross (637 million barrels net) oil equivalent ("MMboe") and Total Best Estimate Prospective Resources of 1,096 MMboe gross (986 MMboe net). The corresponding before tax net present values, using a discount rate of ten percent per annum, are $4.6 billion CAD for Total Best Estimate Contingent Resources and $4.2 billion CAD for Total Best Estimate Prospective Resources. The Contingent and Prospective Resource reports are an important step in the Company's value creation cycle, validating significant resource inventory for future growth and providing confidence to enter into long term transportation and marketing discussions.
Ninety two percent of the Total Best Estimate Contingent Resources and 100 percent of the Total Best Estimate Prospective Resources are attributed to the Triassic Montney formation. The resource reports assign Best Estimate Contingent Resources to 148 gross square miles (93% working interest) and Best Estimate Prospective Resources to 398 gross square miles (98% working interest). The evaluations identify 829 gross Best Estimate Contingent drilling locations and 1,796 gross Best Estimate Prospective drilling locations. Of the 829 Best Estimate Contingent drilling locations, 81% are upper and middle Montney horizontal wells and 19% are Cadotte horizontal wells; and of the 1,796 Best Estimate Prospective drilling locations, 31% are upper and middle Montney horizontal wells and 69% are lower Montney wells. In total, McDaniel evaluated 526 square miles of gross Seven Generations land holdings.

Seven Generations has adopted the standard of 6 Mcf:1 bbl when converting natural gas to oil equivalent. boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given the value ratio based on the current price of oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 Mcf: 1 bbl, utilizing a conversion ratio at 6 Mcf: 1 bbl may be misleading as an indication of value.
