LIGHTNING RELEASES 04/03/14 –The Company plans to close its 10-well program and begin field operations in Western Kentucky as early as the 2nd quarter 2014.

Qualified investors can deduct 100% of the IDC intangible drilling costs against all forms of income in the first year for domestic drilling projects.

The average well in this area produces oil for 18 – 30 years, and the current market price for crude oil approximates $100 per barrel.  Although Encore’s project(s) boast what the Company believes to be very conservative production estimates, there are wells in this area that have reported initial production rates of 20, 30, 50 and 100 BO per day.

“Encore has more than 20 potential drill-site locations to select from for our 10-well program.   The objective is to mitigate risk through diversification – a multiple-well program targeting multiple oil formations”, said Steve Stengell, Encore’s President CEO.  “We are also considering deeper and/or horizontal oil and gas projects for the future”, added Stengell.
