Dejour Enterprises Ltd. on Thursday said that drilling results from a second prospect within its Peace River Arch exploration program have resulted in another successful gas well, representing a significant new discovery in the prolific hydrocarbon area of NW Alberta and NE British Columbia.

Dejour holds a 30% working interest in 6 sections (3,840 acres) of land on which the first test well has now been successfully drilled and cased. The Company is very pleased with the testing of a secondary upper zone resulting in flow rates exceeding 1 mmcf/day (1,000 MCF/day). The Operator will perform testing of the primary formation through casing with stimulation as soon as ground conditions permit, expected prior to the end of Q2-2007. Wells in the immediate area generally produce from this main zone at rates ranging from 1.5mmcf/day to over 3 mmcf/day. Completion and tie in of this well is anticipated in Q3- 2007. Exploration and development drilling of up to 5 additional wells on current land holdings surrounding this discovery is anticipated to evaluate both the extension of the productive formations proven by this discovery and additional formations thought to be highly prospective in this area. The Company and the operator expect to expand their collective land position in this discovery area as soon as possible. As a result details identifying the specific location are being withheld at this time.

One MCF is roughly equivalent to 1mmBTU which is the quoted gas contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange (NYMEX). Current price is approximately US$7.94 per mmBTU.

This is the second significant discovery in 2007 made by Dejour in the Peace River Arch of Alberta and British Columbia. Dejour plans to follow up on the first two successful wells drilled at Drake B.C. with two more development wells in Q4-2007 and then evaluate further prospectivity in 2008.

The Company is currently active on 5 additional exploration projects in the Peace River Arch, one of the Company's three main exploration focus areas.
