LIGHTNING RELEASES 05/12/14 — Encore Energy is preparing to close its first 10-well drilling program and begin field operations in Western Kentucky.  This program’s objective is to test and produce multiple oil target formations.

The Oil-Price.Net one-year forecast for crude oil is $114 per barrel.  The average well in this area produces oil for 18-30 years.

The US government permits qualified investors to deduct 100% of the IDC intangible drilling costs against all forms of income in year one.  This typically represents 90% of the total investment and a tax savings (state and federal) equivalent to 25 – 40% of the total investment.  The remaining estimated 10% of tangible expenses are amortized in subsequent years.

Although Encore’s project(s) boast what the Company believes to be conservative production estimates, there are wells in this area that have initial production rates of 20, 30, 50 and 100 BO per day, as reported by the Kentucky Geological Survey.

“Encore is also planning potential horizontal drilling projects for the long-term”, said Joseph Hooper, Encore’s Executive Vice President of Business Development.

“Drilling operations is tentatively scheduled to begin in the next 30 – 45 days for the Company’s 10-well project”, said Steve Stengell, Encore’s President CEO.
