Eaglewood Ubuntu Well Delayed

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 14, 2010) - Eaglewood Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EWD) ("Eaglewood") announced that due to delays related to weather, barge scheduling and helicopter operations, the mobilization of the drilling rig to be used to drill Eaglewood's Ubuntu well on its PPL 259 license will take longer than originally anticipated. The previously announced spud date of October 23, 2010 now appears unlikely to occur prior to mid-November. The final barge load from Kopi is now expected to arrive at Eaglewood's staging area in Drimdenasuk at the end of October. All equipment and personnel for the drilling operation must then be flown to the Ubuntu locations, approximately 65km from Drimdenasuk.

CEO Brad Hurtubise commented: "Weather and logistical delays are a fact of life when conducting operations in remote areas of a country like PNG. We are disappointed with the delays but are excited to begin drilling in this License."
