By Andrea:

Magnum Hunter Resources Corp. (MHR) recently announced the completion of its first well drilled in the Marcellus Shale, located in Tyler County, West Virginia. The well is the Weese Hunter #1001.

Alpha Hunter Drilling, a wholly owned subsidiary of Magnum Hunter, spud the Weese Hunter #1001 in late July 2010 and reached vertical total depth of approximately 6,510 feet in mid August 2010. A third party drilling rig commenced the horizontal leg in mid September 2010 and reached a horizontal length of approximately 4,028 feet. Total measured depth for the Weese Hunter #1001 is approximately 10,388 feet. A twelve stage frac job was successfully completed in December. The Weese Hunter #1001 well recently tested at an initial production rate ("IP") of 7.0 MMcfe per day with flowing tubing pressures of 2350 psi on a 22/64 inch choke. The British Thermal Unit ("BTU") content of the well was measured at approximately 1,225. The Weese Hunter #1001 began producing yesterday into the recently completed Eureka Hunter pipeline system. The currently estimated economic ultimate recovery ("EUR") for the Weese Hunter #1001 is estimated by the Company's in-house reservoir engineers to be approximately 4 Bcfe. Magnum Hunter's wholly-owned subsidiary, Triad Hunter, LLC, is the operator of this well and owns a 100% working interest with a 84.3% net revenue interest.
