Update on Covenant - 41,000 net acres in the Alberta Basin Bakken

Good Evening,

Just wanted to provide a quick update on news released by Covenant Resources late this afternoon. I mentioned in my last update that we should be hearing about a property acquisition soon and today was the day. The press release is shown below. I'll have a more complete update out in the next week but wanted to note a few key points. If you have some time, please listen to the Rosetta Resources 2ndQ conference call at the following link;

In it, you'll hear how they have been testing their verticals in their Alberta Basin Bakken play and have determined that they believe they can access more than one of the Three Forks, Bakken and possibly Banff formations all with one horizontal frac which greatly improves the potential economics of the play. They also indicated that acreage on the Canadian side of the play went for nearly $1,800/acre at the last crown sale. Covenant just added 41,000 net acres that they feel are prospective for the bakken. Shares are trading at $.20/share for a current market cap of $4 million.
