Epsilon Energy Ltd. Attains New Production Milestone

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2009) - Today Epsilon Energy Ltd. ("Epsilon" or the "Corporation") (TSX:EPS) provided an update on its operations in the Marcellus shale in north-east Pennsylvania.

Epsilon announced that it is producing in excess of 10 mmcf/d from the Highway 706 project in the Marcellus shale. The substantial increase from previously announced levels (6 mmcf/d as at October 28, 2009) is due to bringing two horizontal wells online, along with a second compressor unit (announced November 4, 2009). The Corporation now has six wells producing in the project and generating cash flow. Two further wells, one horizontal and one vertical, are awaiting tie-in and further compression capacity.

This production level represents an all-time high for Epsilon and demonstrates the prolific nature of the Highway 706 project and the Marcellus shale.
