Tanager Energy Inc.: First Joffre Well Production Test Flows at a Stabilized Rate of 290 BOE/d Over a 12 Hour Period

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Jan. 16, 2015) - Mr. John Squarek, President & CEO of Tanager Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:TAN) ("Tanager"), is pleased to report that Tanager has completed the production test on its first well at Joffre at a stabilized rate of 290 BOE/d (235 barrels per day of oil and 325 mcf/d of gas). Tanager is the operator and holds a 50% interest in this project with Viking Investments Group, Inc. holding the other 50%.

The flowing wellhead pressure was stable at 475 psi, estimated to be a 7.7% drawdown of the reservoir. The fluid produced was 100 percent high gravity oil. On a metric equivalent basis this is 52.5 cubic meters oil equivalent per day at 3265 kpa flowing wellhead pressure.

For the first 4 hours the well flowed at 875 BOE/d at 262 psi wellhead pressure. The production rate was reduced for the final 12 hour test period to keep the reservoir drawdown to less than 10%.

The next step in the process is to place the well on production through the existing pipeline at the lease edge. It is expect that this should take place within the next 4-6 weeks. At the same time, plans are under way to reactivate the second well in this project, expected to be done by the end of March.

Tanager Energy Inc. is a Lethbridge, Alberta based corporation engaged in the exploration for oil and gas and minerals, with an operations office in Calgary, Alberta. The Corporation's common shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "TAN".
