Doxa Reports Commencement of Production From Peeler Ranch-Eagle Ford Shale Project, Atascosa County, Texas

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - Doxa Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:DXA)(OTCQX:DXAEF)(FRANKFURT:5D0) ("Doxa" or the "Company") is excited to announce that it has commenced initial production with oil and gas sales from the Peeler Ranch Prospect, part of the Eagle Ford Shale Project in Atascosa County, Texas. Multi-stage hydraulic fracture stimulation operations were successfully completed earlier this month on the Peeler Ranch No. 1-H, and initial flow back operations have commenced. Approximately 1.8 million pounds of proppant were pumped during the job in 12 stages. Doxa management is encouraged by the early indications of oil and gas production, and detailed results will be reported in the near future. The Peeler Ranch No. 1-H, a horizontal Eagle Ford well operated by Dewbre Petroleum Corporation of Corpus Christi, Texas is Doxa's first well on its Qualifying Transaction (see Doxa news, May 25, 2010). The Peeler Ranch No. 1-H was drilled to a total measured depth of 13,630', with a total Eagle Ford in-zone lateral length of approximately 4,000'. All production facilities have been constructed and initial sales of oil and gas have commenced.

Subject to confirmation of commercially viable results on the Peeler Ranch No. 1-H, the Company anticipates that 10-14 gross wells could ultimately be drilled on this 2,005 acre project, under which it owns a 20% working interest along with a 15% net revenue interest. Doxa notes that operators with wells immediately offsetting Doxa's Peeler Ranch Project have announced recoverable reserves in the range of 254-356 MBOE (thousand barrels of oil equivalent) per well, which is in-line with Doxa's expectations for this project.
