Reef Resources Ltd. Announces Spudding of Ausable #5 Oil Well

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 8, 2011) -


Reef Resources Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:REE) ("Reef" or the "Company") reports spud of its Ausable # 5 well on February 8, 2011. Drilling and coring will continue over the next three weeks with completion expected before break up.

The well will be cored and data used to develop the Company's gas storage asset and assist in determining horizontal drilling locations and trajectories for the first phase of the Natural Gas Recycling and Enhanced Oil Recovery ("EOR") program. The Ausable reef is currently on production and is generating revenue from the initial Enhanced Oil Recovery Natural Gas Recycling program which commenced in 4th qtr 2010.

Once Ausable #5 is completed the drilling rig will recover the stage frac tools that have delayed production from the Ausable # 2 horizontal well.

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.
