Epsilon Energy Ltd.- Marcellus Shale Production Increases

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 1, 2009) Epsilon Energy Ltd. ("Epsilon" or the "Corporation") (TSX:EPS) announced today that as of September 1, 2009, it has initiated natural gas production from its Poulsen #2H well in its Highway 706 project targeting the Marcellus Shale, with a production rate of 1.5 Mmcf per day.

The addition of natural gas production from Poulsen #2H to the already producing Poulsen #1H increases total daily production rate to 3.8 Mmcf per day, an all time high for Epsilon.

Epsilon has extended its gathering system to the north of the compressor site in order to bring on three wells that have previously yielded a combined natural gas production rate of 8.5 Mmcf per day. The Corporation currently has compression facilities on location and is working on doubling its compression capacity to 12 Mmcf per day to handle increased production as more wells come online.

Zoran Arandjelovic, Epsilon's Executive Chairman, President and CEO, stated "We are very pleased with the progress of our operations. We are now in a position where we can rapidly increase our daily natural gas production rate and make substantial additions to our reserve base in the Marcellus shale."
