Storm Cat's Fayetteville Wells Purr Nicely for Production



Storm Cat Energy Corporation has provided an update of its operations in the Company's Arkansas Fayetteville Shale acreage.

The first three of the Company's 2008 Fayetteville development program wells are now on production and tied into sales, two of which have undergone State of Arkansas Form 13 testing. Each well continues to produce significant volumes of fracturing fluid.

Notwithstanding, the Owen 1-18H tested at a rate of 1,240 thousand cubic feet per day (Mcf/d) and the Ballard 1-18H tested at a rate of 1,341 Mcf/d. The Company is very encouraged by these test rates and anticipates that production from these wells will increase as cleanup progresses. The third well, the Roberts 1-13H, is tied into sales and is about to undergo a Form 13 rate test.

The Company anticipates commencing hydraulic fracturing of the fourth horizontal well of the 2008 program, the Files 3-12H, this week. Drilling activity on the fifth horizontal well, the Files 2-12H, is ongoing and is approaching total depth.

Finally, completion of the Vaughan 2-18 well, a shallow well testing a gas-charged zone observed in the Vaughan 1-18H well, is expected to commence later this week.

The Company is extremely pleased by the initial results observed in its 2008 wells and believes that these results further validate the Company's asset position.
