Dejour Sees 60% Increase in Net Production at Woodrush

Further Production Enhancements Planned for 2014

VANCOUVER, British Columbia--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Dejour Energy Inc.: (NYSE MKT: DEJ / TSX: DEJ), an independent oil and gas natural gas exploration and production company operating in North America’s Piceance Basin and Peace River Arch regions, announced today that gross daily production at its Woodrush project in NE British Columbia is currently 540 boepd (380 net), an increase of 60% over average gross daily production during Q4 2013 of 316 boepd (237 net).

As previously reported on March 26, 2014 (effective date of acquisition February 1, 2014), the Company closed the purchase of certain natural gas producing assets and related processing facilities adjacent to its Woodrush oilfield 120 km. north of Ft. St. John, B.C. The assets acquired include a 54% working interest in a currently producing Halfway formation well and a 74% working interest in 3 shut-in Halfway natural gas wells. One of those wells has now been reactivated and is producing an additional ~1mmcf/d into the Company’s sales line at Woodrush. The Company is analyzing the best procedure for reactivating the remaining wells. Proven Developed Producing reserve additions are now being calculated.

“We are very pleased to report this development at Woodrush,” states Chairman/CEO Robert L. Hodgkinson, “and plan to continue to develop natural gas production at Woodrush throughout the remainder of 2014. Our $2.4mm CAPEX budget includes opening up the prolific Gething sweet gas zone that drapes over the Halfway at this project. We expect strong gas prices to prevail in B.C. Our delivery system to the Spectra line has capacity up to 6mmcf/d in its current configuration, 10mmcf/d with additional compression.”

In accordance with NYSE Regulation reporting requirements, the Company announces that the “Independent Auditor’s Report” on the Company’s Consolidated Financial Statements for the Year Ended December 31, 2013 contains, without qualifying the Auditor’s audit opinion, standard comments as to the Company’s ability to continue as a “going concern.”
