HOUSTON, June 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Far East Energy Corporation (OTCBB:
FEEC) the US listed company that operates the Shouyang PSC in Shanxi Province,
People's Republic of China, today announced that 13 new wells have commenced
in the 13 days since the last 2013 drilling program update release issued on
Friday, June 14, bringing to 43 the number of wells spudded in 2013.
Additionally, 4 wells reached total depth, and the 2013 frac program is well
underway. Currently there are 30 rigs in the field.

CEO Michael R. McElwrath commented, "We now have 30 rigs in the field,
substantially exceeding our announced target of 25, and have spudded wells at
a rate equivalent to 1 well per day over the past two weeks. This is a level
of activity that is unmatched by our peers in China and for which our team in
the field, led by our two General Managers of Field Operations, Brent Lowson
and Matt Murphy, deserve high praise."

The company also announced that preliminary results from the SYSE-09 appraisal
well located in the far southeast corner of the block and more than 35
kilometers distant from the company's 1-H production Area, reveal a very thick
number 15 coal seam of over 10 meters in thickness, with exceptionally high
preliminary gas content readings. The well was completed to a depth of 1388
meters or 4554 feet.

Alex Yang, Senior Vice President for Exploration commented, "These results
continue to indicate that the entire eastern half of the Shouyang block has
coals of excellent thickness and high gas content representing an exceptional
target for development of future production areas as well as reserves
