CONCORD, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Aug. 12, 2011) - Further to the press release dated July 19, 2011, Epsilon Energy Ltd. ("Epsilon" or the "Company") (TSX:EPS) has completed an evaluation of its horizontal well in Mississippi targeting the Brown Dense Formation. It is the Company's opinion that there is a presence of hydrocarbons however the formation is too tight to produce in any significant quantities. Consequently, in order to recover commercial quantities of oil, it is the Company's opinion that the well will need to be stimulated. Given the complexity of such an operation, Epsilon is seeking an industry partner to assist with this stimulation. Some preliminary meetings have been held with interested parties but no conclusive arrangement has been reached.
