Epsilon Energy Ltd. Announces Results of Initial Alberta Well

CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 14, 2013) - Epsilon Energy Ltd. ("Epsilon") (TSX:EPS) is pleased to announce early results from its first company operated horizontal well targeting the Basal Belly River in Alberta. The well was drilled and brought online early December 2012. Based on the well's performance and low cost, Epsilon has drilled a second and third well. Upon completion and testing of the three wells, detailed results will be provided.

As previously reported, Epsilon signed a definitive agreement with a private Canadian company whereby Epsilon will have the opportunity to earn a 50% interest in leasehold properties in Alberta, Canada targeting the Basal Belly River zone. The project acreage has the potential to support up to six drilling locations.

Commenting on the updated initial well results, Zoran Arandjelovic, Epsilon's Chairman, CEO and President, said, "Early results from our first Epsilon operated well are encouraging and exceed our internal return thresholds. Successful management of our well costs make the economics of this development play compelling. This project demonstrates our commitment to lower risk, oil focused projects in areas we possess expertise."

Epsilon Energy Ltd. is a North American onshore exploration and production company with a current focus in the Marcellus Shale in Pennsylvania, Bakken Shale in Saskatchewan and Basal Belly River in Alberta.
