Horse Hill-1 Well Drilling Activities Commence

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - September 04, 2014) - Magellan Petroleum Corporation ("Magellan" or the "Company") (NASDAQ: MPET) announced today that drilling operations on the Horse Hill-1 well commenced on September 3, 2014.

The well is expected to be drilled to a depth of approximately 8,700 feet and to test a number of Jurassic-aged conventional stacked oil formations, including the Portland Sandstone, Corallian Sandstone, and Great Oolite formations, and a Triassic-aged conventional gas target. The well will be drilled vertically and will not be hydraulically fractured. 

The Horse Hill-1 well is located in the Weald Basin, onshore UK, and lies within the license area of PEDL 137. Pursuant to a farmout agreement executed in December 2013, Horse Hill Development Limited ("HHDL"), a majority-owned subsidiary of Angus Energy, will carry Magellan for its share of the costs of this well in exchange for having received operatorship of, and a 65% interest in, both the well and the license. 

During drilling, Magellan will have the opportunity to core and log at its own expense several shale and tight formations in the Cretaceous and Jurassic sections, including the Kimmeridge Clay and Liassic formations. The Company expects that the information gained through these activities will provide valuable insights into the technical and economic viability of unconventional development elsewhere in the Weald Basin.
