Cinch Energy Corp. Provides Update, Production Exceeds 4,000 boe/d

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 19, 2011) -

Cinch Energy Corp. (TSX:CNH) ("Cinch" or the "Company") is pleased to provide the following update.

Dawson Area, North East British Columbia

The facility and pipeline construction project has been completed with nine additional Montney wells tied in. Cinch has a 41.6% working interest in the gathering system, compression and interconnect pipelines and a 20.8% working interest in the refrigeration facility and sales pipeline.

Recent activity on adjacent lands also indicates that there could be significant unbooked potential in the middle and lower Montney intervals on Cinch's working interest land. It is currently anticipated that five gross (1.44 net) additional horizontal Montney wells will be drilled in the last half of 2011 in this area.

Deep Basin Area, West Central Alberta

Three wells, the Kakwa 5-18-61-4 W6M (60% working interest) horizontal Dunvegan liquids rich gas well, the Kakwa 1-26-61-6 W6M (25% working interest) horizontal Falher liquids rich gas well and the Kakwa 12-34-61-6 W6M (20% working interest) vertical well have all been brought on stream.

Oil Opportunities

Cinch has a total of 49 sections of land (100% working interest) on four oil plays in West Central and Northern Alberta. These plays continue to be developed with plans to evaluate a number of opportunities in the second half of 2011.


Recent activities have resulted in the Company's production exceeding 4,000 boe/d. Cinch's credit facilities were reviewed in March 2011, and a single facility for $50 MM has been approved. Additional details about Cinch's 2011 plans and activities are shown in our corporate presentation on our website at

Barrel of Oil Equivalency

Natural gas volumes are converted to barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) on the basis of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) of gas to one barrel (bbl) of oil. The term "barrels of oil equivalent" may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of six mcf to one bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
