Trans Energy, Inc. Reports Company-Record Well Results In Marion And Marshall Counties, West Virginia

Freeland #2H Confirms High Flow Rates in Marion County

ST. MARYS, W.Va., Jan. 21, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Trans Energy, Inc. (OTCQB: TENG), a pure play Marcellus Shale exploration and production company, today announced 30 and 60-Day initial production (IP) results on the Freeland #2H in Marion County, West Virginia. The 30-day IP rate standardized for 1,000 feet of lateral set a new company record, despite being choked back.  Trans Energy further announced 30, 60 and 90-Day IP rates per 1,000 feet of lateral on the Martinez #1H in Marshall County, West Virginia.  This well set a new 30-day company record for standardized production after the first 60 days, despite also being choked back.

John G. Corp, President of Trans Energy, said, "Despite pipeline imposed constraints, the 30-day IP rates standardized for 1,000 feet of lateral once again came in at record levels, this time in Marion County. We believe that these results confirm our expectations that Marion County could exceed the already high rates of return we are seeing in Marshall and Wetzel Counties.  The Freeland #2H may be our best well to date, and the Martinez #1H is arguably our best well yet in Marshall County.  Our continued success demonstrates that we have a both an exceptional acreage position and a top-notch operational team."

30-Day Production Rate Standardized for 1,000 Feet of Lateral in Marion County Sets New Company Record

The 30-day IP rate for the Freeland #2H was 9,182 Mcfe/d and the well has an effective lateral length of 4,182 feet.  After standardizing the flow rate to a 1,000 foot lateral, the initial 30-day production rate from the Freeland #2H was 2,196 Mcfe/d. This standardized production rate for the Freeland #2H set a new company record.

These results occurred in spite of the fact that the well's flow rate was curtailed due to limitations imposed by the meter at the pipeline interconnect. In fact, the average daily rate for the second 30 days of production (days 31-60) on the Freeland #2H was higher than the average of the first 30 days of production. Moreover, when it was choked back further to allow the adjacent Freeland #1H to turn into sales, the well was producing at a 4-day average of 10,241 Mcfe/d, which represents a rate above the average for the first 60 days.

The horizontal wellbore was completed parallel to the Freeland #1H and both wells were hydraulically stimulated using substantially the same technique that the company used in the company's recent completions in Wetzel and Marshall Counties. 

30-Day Standardized Production Rate (Days 61-90) Sets Company Record in Marshall County

The Martinez #1H was also choked back due to constraints imposed at the pipeline interconnect, in this case by the dehydration unit placed on site by the pipeline operator. Despite this limitation, the well has produced approximately 6,096 Mcfe/d over the first 90 days. When standardized to a 1,000 foot lateral length, for each of the first three 30-day periods (days 1-30, 31-60 and 61-90), the Martinez #1H delivered average 30-day IP rates of 1,594 Mcfe/d, 1,587 Mcfe/d and 1,508 Mcfe/d, respectively. The standardized production rate for the Martinez #1H for days 61-90 represents the highest standardized production rate for any of the Company's wells during a comparable period.

The effective lateral length was 3,900 feet and the total 30-day IP rate was 6,217 Mcfe/d. The horizontal wellbore was not completed parallel to any directly adjacent horizontal wellbores, but was hydraulically stimulated using substantially the same technique that the company used in its other recent completions. 

Corp commented, "Despite being choked back, and without the potential benefit from having another well fracked only 500 feet away, this well continues to deliver very strong results. The Martinez #1H set a new company record for standardized production rates beyond 60 days. It further confirms that we can deliver consistently high rates of return across our entire three county acreage position."

The data in the table below demonstrate the 30, 60 and 90-day IP rates for the company's recent completions, as compared to the average of the 30, 60 and 90-day IP rates for previous completions in Marshall and Wetzel Counties.
