Allied Energy Announces Natural Gas Discovery for Its Horizontal Drilling Program in Giddings Field, Texas

BOWLING GREEN, KY--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Allied Energy, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: AGGI) announced the results today for its horizontal drilling program in the historic Giddings Field of Grimes County, Texas.

The Howard #1H was drilled to a total measured depth of approximately 17,000' in two horizontal laterals oriented northwest and southeast along existing trends. 

The Howard #1H encountered a series of natural gas bearing intervals while drilling through the primary objective Buda / Georgetown Limestone Formation. 

On May 15, 2010, the Howard #1H tested at a flowing rate of 4,011 MCFGD on a 20/64" choke with associated condensate. It is anticipated that the well will initially produce at the sales rate of ~ 2,000 MCFGD and potentially higher in the future. The company is currently underway constructing the production facilities, the gas flow lines and preparing the project for ongoing producing operations.

"We are extremely pleased with the results we have seen thus far for this project and are now making plans for additional locations in the trend," said Steve Stengell, Allied's President. "Allied plans to continue to pursue and develop additional horizontal opportunities in the Basin and implement the newer technological advances that relate to horizontal drilling," added Stengell.

In the first quarter of 2009, Allied Energy, Inc. formed Allied Gas Transmission, a majority owned subsidiary, for the purpose of developing the Company's future gas market and natural gas transmission systems in Rogers County, Oklahoma. Allied Energy, Inc. has contracted Allied Gas Transmission to trench, lay line and connect the Howard #1H to the local gas market.

In 2009, Allied Energy, Inc. also formed Allied Operating Texas, LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary, for the purposes of operating and developing its vertical and horizontal drilling programs in the East Texas Basin.

No assurances can be made as it relates to present or future production rates or estimated reserves for any given project or the company as a whole. Tremendous risks and uncertainty are associated with oil and gas drilling, completion, development and production operations. It is impossible to estimate future rates and/or declines in production operations for both condensate and natural gas.
