Epsilon Energy Commences Construction of the Highway 706 Pipeline

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 25, 2009) - Epsilon Energy Ltd. (TSX:EPS) ("Epsilon" or the "Company") today announced it has commenced constructing pipeline and related production infrastructure within its Highway 706 project in Pennsylvania, where it is holds a 100% working interest and is targeting the Marcellus shale.

The Department of Environmental Protection has issued the Company an ESCGP-1 permit ("General Permit"), which allows the Company to immediately commence infrastructure construction, including the build-out of the compression facility and gathering system in order to bring natural gas production to a sales point on the Tennessee Gas pipeline. To date, the Company has acquired over 25 miles of pipeline right-of-way; a critical element in developing a substantial drilling program designed to fully exploit the potential for natural gas production within the Highway 706 project. The Company expects to commence natural gas production from Highway 706 prior to the end of June 2009.

Fred Zaziski, President of Epsilon, stated "We are continuing to aggressively develop our Highway 706 project in the Marcellus shale, where we are currently drilling our eighth well (Hardic 2H, a horizontal well) and are scheduled to frac our fourth well (Poulson 2H, a horizontal well) at the end of this month". In the Marcellus shale, the Company has assembled a strong acreage position where it is the operator, including approximately 47,000 gross (31,000 net) leasehold acres in Pennsylvania and New York, including approximately 12,000 gross/net leasehold acres on its Highway 706 project in Pennsylvania.
