Century Energy Updates Vaughn Prospect

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 15, 2011) -


Century Energy Ltd (TSX VENTURE:CEY) ("Century" or the "Company") announces that further to its November 24, 2011 press release, it has drilled and is in the process of production testing its 10-30 Vawn well in west central Saskatchewan (the "Vawn Prospect"). After having encountered approximately 17.5 meters of indicated heavy oil pay above the oil/water contact, thermal production casing was run and completion operations were initiated utilizing a service rig and a tubing-reciprocated pumping system (PTS). The PTS was unable to pump the well off, so in order to get an accurate flow rate measurement, a screw pump and single well battery is now being installed. Productive wells in the nearby Edam Pool typically produce large volumes of water before the onset of oil and thereafter at high water cuts. Consequently it may be necessary to pump this well for several weeks before its commerciality can be assessed.

Century has a 50% working interest in the Vawn Prospect.

More information concerning the Vawn Prospect can be found on the Company's web site at www.centuryenergyltd.com. Century Energy is an oil and gas exploration company pursuing opportunities in Canada and the United States.
