Dejour Energy Inc., an independent oil and natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America's Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, Monday announced that it has commenced production at the Company's South Rangely leasehold from its successful discovery well drilled in 4Q 2011. On initial test the well flowed rich gas at rates in excess of 400 MMcfd. Dejour maintains a 30% WI in the discovery, but holds a 77% WI in the balance of the unitized 6300 acre leasehold. Dejour and its partner will now focus on the Hz production potential for oil that has been encountered in a down dip extension of the same Niobrara formation south of this leasehold.
"Production at South Rangely signifies the execution of an important component of our 2012 strategic plan. We committed in 1Q 2012 to unitize relevant acreage associated with this Dejour operated leasehold and have achieved this milestone. South Rangely represents the Company's first U.S. based production. This well will not only contribute incremental revenue but secure the leasehold and set the stage for future development collaborations in this developing play," said Dejour COO Hal Blacker.
