CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/20/14 -- Border Petroleum Corp. ("Border" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE: BOR) is pleased to announce results of the drilling and completion operations that utilized its remaining CEE obligations. Border participated in the drilling of one well (100% WI) and two well completions (100% and 30% WI) which are described in more detail below.

Wilrich Zone Completion at Tomahawk, Central Alberta

Border incurred 100% of the cost to complete the Wilrich zone in a vertical well located at LSD 1-20-52-7W5 in the Tomahawk area of Central Alberta. Results exceeded expectations in that during 130 hours of clean-up after fracture stimulation, flow increased to a relatively stable rate of 30.5 M3/d (1,080 mcf/d).
