Dejour Spuds Kokopelli Well in Colorado

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, announced that it has successfully spud the Federal 6-7-15-27 directional well at its Kokopelli field located in Garfield County, Colorado, late last week.

This is the first of three new wells to be drilled sequentially during the current program. Drilling and setting of surface casing will continue next week for each of Federal 6-7-14-27 and Federal 6-7-13-27, prior to drilling out of surface casing, logging and casing of each well to a total depth of approximately 8,300 feet. This operation should be accomplished within a 30 day window, prior to the initiation of the completion program.

The target production zone encompasses multiple horizons within the NGL rich Williams Fork (Mesa Verde) gas bearing formation.

Dejour operates this Kokopelli project with a 100 percent working interest in these three wells, subject to a previously announced agreement with a Denver based drilling fund.
