The well is located in Cooke County, Texas and Rife Energy Operating, Inc. of Fort Worth, Texas is the operator.

This well is the first of three wells in which Ignis is currently participating in the Barnett Shale. The other two, the Powell #1 well, located in Montague County, Texas and the Powell #2 well, located in Cooke County, Texas, are scheduled to be fully completed during the month of April 2006. Ignis holds the same level of working interests and net revenue interests in these wells as it does in the Inglish Sisters #3 well.
