Daytona Energy Corporation: Walker #1H Well on North Sharon Prospect Flowing Gas to Sales

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - June 16, 2009) - Daytona Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DTE) announces the Walker #1H well has been completed and is flowing gas to sales. Production began May 26, 2009 initially producing up casing at rates as high as 800 mcf/d with approximately 10 barrels of water per hour. The well is currently producing at a rate of 500 mcf/d with 6 barrels of water per hour.

It is believed the water is being produced from a source external to the producing Selma Chalk horizon and the operator of the well has run cased-hole production logs to determine the source of the water. That data is currently being analyzed to develop a plan to reduce the amount of water being produced when tubing is run in the wellbore.

The Company has a 25.875% non-operated working interest in the project where 3,200 acres are under lease. Averages per well recoveries in the producing area immediately west of the prospect are 2.7 BCF with over 30 BCF recoverable within one 640 acre section.

Daytona is an oil and gas exploration/development company, focused on gas exploration in Alberta, Canada and the Gulf Coast region of the United States.
