New Sage Energy Provides Production Update on the Leger #1 Well

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Jan. 28, 2010) - New Sage Energy Corp (TSX VENTURE:NSG) ("New Sage") is pleased to announce an update on the Leger #1 well that was drilled and completed in the Lafourche Crossing Field, Louisiana in October 2009. Leger #1 has been producing oil and gas since December 12, 2009 and early production results show an average flow rate of 1.08 mmcf/day natural gas and 23 bbls/day of 52o API (which is approximately 107 barrels of oil equivalent per day "Boe/d"), after a 27 day initial production history. The well reached a total depth of 10,648' and was completed between 10,614' and 10,643'. 

There were up to nine potential oil and gas productive zones identified in the Leger #1 well; three to five zones were anticipated prior to drilling. The well targeted five sands; 9850', 9900', 10100', 10180' and 10300' that are known producing sands within the Lafourche Crossing Field. The Leger #1 drill location is located on the down-thrown side of a listric growth fault where favorable gas production characteristics have historically been encountered. Proximity to this style of fault, as observed for sands located at depth for this development well, increases the likelihood to encounter additional oil and gas reservoirs.

Sidewall core analysis results indicate that these nine sands provide a total of 45' net pay with good reservoir quality, with an additional 24' of potential net pay and 14' of possible pay. Leger #1 well has 15' of section within the 9850' sands to be perforated with the lower portion of this reservoir considered to have good reserve potential. Sidewall core analysis confirms that the 8100', 9850', 10100' and 10375' sands all have good reservoir potential. New Sage holds a 5% working interest in the J. Leger #1 well.
