Sure Energy announces natural gas discovery

CALGARY, Dec. 7 /CNW/ - Sure Energy Inc. ("Sure Energy" or the "the Company") is pleased to announce that it has made a significant sweet dual zone natural gas discovery in the Peace River Arch area of Alberta. The 100% working interest well production flow tested for eight days at a combined stabilized rate of 3.5 MMcf/d from two separate zones.

Operations are currently underway to tie the well in by mid January 2010. This discovery well is anticipated to commence production at a rate of 2.0 MMcf/d (335 BOE/d) net to the Company. This well qualifies for the Alberta Government Drilling Tax Credit of $200 a meter and a reduced government crown royalty of 5% on the first year's production. With this well on production, Sure Energy's corporate production will increase to over 1,000 BOE/d.


In this press release the calculation of barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) is calculated at a conversion rate of 6,000 cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas for one barrel (bbl) of oil based on an energy equivalency conversion method. BOEs 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.
