Sydney, Australia, Oct 11, 2012 - (ABN Newswire) - United States focused oil & gas produer AusTex Oil Limited (ASX:AOK.AX - News) (OTCQX:ATXDY - News) is pleased to update shareholders on its continued well development program at the company's Snake River Project in Kay County, Oklahoma.

AusTex is delighted to report the Balder #1-30N well (AOK 13.76% WI), in which the company is participating with Range Resources Corporation (NYSE:RRC - News), has achieved a return on investment for AusTex of 67.24% (including drilling and operating expenses) based on the first 90 days of production revenue.

Following the success of Balder #1-30N, AusTex is also pleased to report that the Hod #1-19H Horizontal Well is expected to spud this month. As announced on September 12, AOK will hold an 8.33% Working Interest in this well following an agreement with Range Resources to participate in additional Horizontal Well development in Section 19, Township 25N Range 1 West.

Executive Chairman Richard Adrey commented: "The results from Balder #1-30N are beyond our initial expectations and indicate that the well is a valuable asset for AusTex as we continue to build our production profile. Range Resources has reported that the Balder #1-30N is one of their best ever performing horizontal wells, which bodes well for the future.

"The success of the Balder #1-30N well demonstrates that Snake River holds considerable unlocked potential, and we are continuing to pursue additional horizontal well participation opportunities.
