Reef Resources Ltd. Announces 72 Metres of Net Pay on the Ausable #5 Well

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 13, 2011) -


Reef Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:REE) ("Reef" or the "Company") reports that petrophysical analysis has been finalized on its Ausable # 5 well. Log analysis indicates 72 metres net pay of oil, natural gas liquids (NGL's) and natural gas in the Guelph and A2 formations in Ontario, Canada.

Log analysis in the Guelph indicates net oil and gas liquids pay zone is 57 metres with porosity averaging 9.7%. Evidence of hydrocarbons was evident on core and logs throughout the Guelph formation.

Additionally, the shallower A2 formation was identified as a potential gas producer with net pay of 15 meters and 7% porosity.

The Company will now undertake a work program in order to complete the hole and flow test the well, with the intent of bringing the Ausable #5 well on production.

A comprehensive core analysis will be conducted in the near future to determine cap rock integrity for future gas storage, permeability of the producing zones and provide useful information for the upcoming completion program.

Arnie Hansen, President, stated "The Ausable #5 well has exceeded our expectations. The log and core results confirm the notion the Ausable reef is an underutilized and undervalued asset. Findings on the Ausable #5 well confirm the Company logic to accelerate the Enhanced Oil Recovery Oil (EOR) and Natural Gas Liquids program".

Reef will be announcing test results after completion and next development steps in the EOR, NGL program.

The Ausable reef is currently on production and is generating revenue from the initial Enhanced Oil Recovery Natural Gas Liquids Recycling program which commenced in 4th quarter 2010.

Footnote: The Company's Ontario asset has gas storage rights, gas re-injection permit for gas recycle, NGL recovery, enhanced oil recovery and arbitrage. A key component of Reef's Ontario strategy is to identify and exploit undervalued prospects in the Ontario basin by utilizing the company's 23,500 acres of proprietary 3D seismic. In addition to its Ontario Properties, Reef has identified multiple oil and gas acquisition and development opportunities throughout Canada.
