Petro-Reef Resources Ltd. Announces Q3-2010 Financial and Operational Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 26, 2010) - Petro-Reef Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:PER),

Petro-Reef Resources Ltd. ("Petro-Reef" or the "Corporation") is pleased to release its Q3 - 2010 financial statements and management discussion and analysis. Access to Petro-Reef's Q3 – 2010 results may be obtained at or

Q3 – 2010 Highlights:

  • Gross revenue of $2,158,544
  • Cash flow from operations of $544,138
  • Royalty rate of 14.3% as production shifts to lands which attract Freehold royalties as compared to Crown royalties

On October 4, 2010, Petro-Reef brought onstream its discovery oil well at a rate of approximately 300 boe/d, including 100 bbls/d of crude oil in the Corporation's core area of Alexander. As a result of the addition of this high impact well, Petro-Reef's current production has risen to 1,000 boe/d, including 200 bbls/d of crude oil. 

Based on the strong stabilized production rate of the discovery oil well, Petro-Reef commenced drilling a follow-up location located approximately 500 meters from the discovery well this week (79% working interest), with test results expected to be announced in December. With the follow-up location located approximately 500 meters from Petro-Reef's existing infrastructure, the Corporation anticipates adding production from the follow-up well by January. Assuming the follow-up location is comparable to the discovery well, Petro-Reef anticipates production to be approximately 1,200-1,300 boe/d upon the tie-in of the follow-up well, including 300-350 bbls/d of crude oil.

Reference is made to barrels of oil equivalent (boe). Barrels of oil equivalent may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.
