HOUSTON, Jan. 20, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lucas Energy, Inc. (NYSE Amex:LEI), an independent oil and gas company, reported today that the Hilcorp Energy Company operated Hagen EF No.1H Eagle Ford horizontal well is expected to be brought into production within the next two weeks. Fracture stimulation of the well is complete and the new horizontal well responded well to the treatment. Additional information will be available in the next few weeks.

"We are very pleased with the results of the lateral drilling and stimulation of this, our first, Eagle Ford horizontal well," commented William A. Sawyer, President and CEO of Lucas Energy, who continued: "Hilcorp did an excellent job of choosing the location, drilling the well, and performing a multistage stimulation. We anticipate that the results will meet or exceed our expectations."

Scheduling of the fracture stimulation of the second Hilcorp operated Eagle Ford well in which Lucas Energy, Inc. has an interest will be scheduled in the near future. Data gathered from the results of the first well will be used to design the fracture stimulation treatment for the second Eagle Ford lateral well. The lateral sections of the two wells both exceeded 5,000 feet of horizontal displacement.
