Strata-X Rohweder Well Encounters Oil and Gas Shows, Sleeping Giant Gas Project

DENVER, COLORADO and BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND AUSTRALIA and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 06/26/14 --


--  Gas shows encountered in the Niobrara formation after penetrating
    regional hydrocarbon seal.
--  Approximately 80 feet of reservoir interpreted in the upper two
    intervals of the Niobrara.
--  Currently running logs ahead of casing operations.

The directors and management of Strata-X Energy Ltd. ("Strata-X" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: SXE)(ASX: SXA) are pleased to announce that the Company has completed drilling operations on the Rohweder #1-11 well ("Well"), the Company's first proof of concept well on the Company's 120,000 net acre Sleeping Giant Gas Project. In drilling the vertical Well to a total depth of 1,450 feet, gas shows were encountered immediately after penetrating the regional hydrocarbon seal. In total, gas shows were encountered over an 80 foot interval of the targeted Niobrara formation, with gas shows peaking at approximately 300 units over a background of 25 units. In drilling portions of the targeted Niobrara formation, oil fluorescence and oil cut were also observed.

The Well is currently being logged in preparation for setting casing to total depth. After casing, the Well will be shut-in to await completion stimulation. This will allow the Company time to design an optimal method utilizing data obtained during the drilling of the Well. The Rohweder #1-11 well is the Company's first proof of concept well on the Sleeping Giant Gas Project where the Company has rights to approximately 120,000 net acres of exploratory leases. The Company maintains a 100% working interest in the Well. It is anticipated that three additional wells may be drilled on other large prospects mapped over the Sleeping Giant Gas Project later this year following successful production testing of this Well.

The Sleeping Giant Gas Project is targeting biogenic natural gas from the prolific Upper Cretaceous Niobrara formation in the Williston Basin, North Dakota. The Niobrara Formation is a significant petroleum system in the USA and has produced over 1 Tcf of natural gas from shallow accumulations including the project's geologic analogue, the Beecher Island field in the Denver-Julesburg Basin (Colorado, USA). To date, the Beecher Island field has produced over 101 Bcf(1) of natural gas and is expected to ultimately produce 157 Bcf(2) within an area spanning approximately 32 square miles. A field analysis done by Walt King(2) shows that reserves per well average 640,000 Mcf(2) on 160 acre spacing in the Beecher Island Gas Field. It is expected that the Sleeping Giant Gas Project could yield similar economic resources per well due to similar geologic conditions. The Rohweder #1-11 well is located in Emmon County, North Dakota.
