Blaze Connects a Total of 9 Fayetteville Shale Wells for Production

Blaze Energy Corp., a majority-owned subsidiary of Environmental Energy Services, Inc., announced that three additional wells are producing, connected and flowing gas to the pipeline, bringing its new total of participating Fayetteville Shale wells up to nine.

"Given that our first participating well connected on December 24, 2007, and our wells are being drilled at a rate greater than one per week, with the rate accelerating, the management team at Blaze Energy is very pleased with the rapid progress being made in the Fayetteville Shale Play," said A. Leon Blaser, Chief Executive Officer of Blaze Energy. "Shareholders should know we expect this momentum to continue and production levels to increase throughout the year."
