Falcon Crest Energy Optimistic About Prospecting in Powder River Basin

FORT WORTH, TX--(Marketwired - Dec 23, 2014) - Falcon Crest Energy, Inc. (OTC: FCEN) (the "Company"), a development stage oil and gas exploration and production company, today reaffirms its optimistic outlook regarding the Company's current position and potential in the Powder River Basin.

The Powder River Basin is located in Wyoming, a state many experts forecast as being on the cusp of a second oil boom. The area's untapped oil prospects are rapidly attracting the interest of major energy companies and industry analysts that recognize the tremendous potential of the basin's conventional and tight formations. Tight formations refer to oil plays that require enhanced oil recovery techniques to extract the oil such as fracking and horizontal drilling. Advances in drilling technology have unlocked plays that were once deemed unreachable, serving as a gateway to tremendous potential.

Some industry experts liken the growing potential in Wyoming to that experienced in North Dakota. The muscle behind North Dakota's oil boom is a surge in oil production from the Bakken Shale, an underground rock formation in the northwestern part of the state. North Dakota currently has an economic growth rate of 13.4%, easily outpacing the average U.S. state growth of 2.5%. Widespread speculation is that the Powder River Basin may someday see a drilling frenzy comparable to the Bakken Shale and that Wyoming may become the next North Dakota.

Falcon Crest's strategy is to take advantage of its current position in the Powder River Basin by developing proved petroleum reserves and maximizing profit through strategic acquisition and liquidation of selected oil and gas properties.

Patrick Johnson, chief executive officer of Falcon Crest, stated, "We believe that with increasing interest factors regarding the vast potential in the Powder River Basin, Falcon Crest is strongly positioned in the right place and at the right time. We're excited to have an established presence in such a high-interest region offering such incredible opportunity."
