Southern Star Shines Bright at Atkins-Lincoln 18-2 Well

Southern Star Energy is pleased to announce continuing successful progress in its Sentell Field Development Program, Bossier Parish Louisiana.

The Company has performed a successful high rate "slick water" fracture treatment on its Atkins-Lincoln 18-2 well in the Cotton Valley "C" Sand through perforations at 8,093' – 8,114'. The well was stimulated with 102,000 of proppant on March 31, 2008. The well is currently flowing back stimulation fluids at a rate of 30 – 40 BPH. After flowback testing is complete, this completion will be commingled with the initial completion interval, the Upper Davis section of the Cotton Valley Formation with perforations at 8,478' - 8,492'.

Flowlines and equipment have been previously installed such that the well can be placed into sales as soon as testing and commingling operations are completed. Initial production is anticipated within the next two weeks.
