CANADA ENERGY PARTNERS ANNOUNCES RESOLUTION OF MONIAS DISPUTE
September 30, 2010
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA - Canada Energy Partners Inc. ("Canada Energy" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE: CE) is pleased to announce that the Company and Daylight Energy Ltd. (“Daylight”) have mutually settled the legal dispute over the Seismic Option Agreement on the Company’s Monias Prospect (see the Company’s April 17, 2009 announcement). Under the terms of the settlement, Daylight will be deemed to have earned a 60% working interest in four sections and the 13-30-81-21 wellbore with the Company retaining a 40% working interest in the four sections and the 13-30-81-21 wellbore. Daylight will have no further earning rights in the Monias Prospect and the Company will retain a 100% interest in the four remaining sections in the Monias Prospect. Under the original terms of the Seismic Option Agreement, West Energy Ltd., a company acquired by Daylight in May 2010, had the option to earn a 65% interest in the eight sections comprising the Monias Prospect.
Offset operators continue to de-risk the Company’s Monias Prospect. Shell has drilled one vertical and four horizontal Montney wells immediately off the southeast corner of the Company’s Monias lease line and is currently drilling a fifth well. The Company owns 100% of the three sections closest to the Shell wells. Terra Energy is currently drilling a Montney test well 1.4 miles north of the Company’s north lease line and has four other Montney wells permitted in the immediate area.
Canada Energy is an active oil and gas exploration and development company with approximately $3.6 million of working capital. The Company possesses a large concentrated land position in a high-impact, multi-zone, natural gas-bearing area in northeast British Columbia.
