Forent Energy Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Jan. 26, 2011) - Forent Energy Ltd. ("Forent" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:FEN) is pleased to provide the following update on its operations in Western Canada and Nova Scotia.

The Company is presently injecting approximately 1,600 bbls per day of produced water into its recently completed Mervin, Saskatchewan salt water disposal well, from the six producing oil wells in the field. The well was completed to inject water into the Dina formation and has a capacity to handle more than 9,000 bbls of produced water per day. The Company anticipates savings of approximately $40,000 per month, increasing to $60,000 per month once all producing wells are tied into the water injection well later this year. 

Forent plans to increase the production from its Mervin wells now that it is no longer incurring third party water disposal costs. In addition, the Company intends to drill a second well in the Lloydminster area (net 50%), which is expected to spud mid-February

Forent's average December production was approximately 350 boe/d of which about two thirds was oil and NGL's. 

The Company successfully completed a 23 section 3D seismic acquisition program at its Montgomery property, west of Claresholm, Alberta and is currently processing the data in order to identify multi zone prospects for both light oil and sweet gas.

In Nova Scotia, the gravity gradiometry data that was acquired last Fall has been processed and the Company expects to complete its interpretation of this information by the middle of February.
