Encore Energy, Inc. Announces Plans to Drill Horizontal Berea Project(s) in Northern Lawrence County, Kentucky

Share Article

Encore has recently acquired the rights to drill on a new tract that is approaching 600 acres in close proximity to proven Berea oil production and drilling activity in northern Lawrence County, Kentucky.

Encore has successfully drilled and completed its first horizontal Berea oil well in Lawrence County that is currently awaiting production. The Company is already moving equipment, excavating the location and making other preparations to drill its 2nd horizontal Berea well in Lawrence County, and is now making plans to potentially drill multiple horizontal Berea oil wells in northern Lawrence County as well. The company currently controls nearly ~7000 lease acres in Lawrence County.

Tier I Horizontal Berea oil wells in the productive oil window(s) of Lawrence County have reportedly averaged in the range of ~100 - 150 BOPD over the initial 90 days of production where the well development costs are significantly lower, as compared to other plays across the US. Berea oil production from Lawrence County, Kentucky represented nearly 25% of the state's total annual oil production in 2014. Per the Kentucky Oil and Gas Association, the Berea Oil play is a “Game Changer” for Kentucky’s oil and gas industry.

“Although no assurances can be made and risk still does exist, we are extremely excited about the opportunity to diversify our horizontal projects across multiple, proven and productive oil producing areas of the Berea play,” said Steve Stengell, Encore’s President and CEO. “We are also proud of the fact that we are making plans to drill to the north and immediately off-set to one of, if not the most, proven and experienced publicly traded operator in this area of Appalachia,” added Stengell.

“SEC Defined Accredited investors can deduct 100% of their investment against all forms of income with the potential for years of monthly income from production,” said Joseph Hooper, Encore’s Executive Vice President. “This one-of-a-kind tax benefit further mitigates the risk associated with oil and gas projects,” added Hooper.

Qualified SEC defined accredited investors can deduct 100% of their investment against all forms of income (for the current 2018 tax year) with years of potential income from oil production.

Oil and gas investments involve a high degree of risk, uncertainty and are suitable for only SEC defined Accredited investors who can afford the loss of their entire investment. The information herein may include forward-looking statement, and actual results may vary.
