In many cases, the end of the year gives you time to step back and take stock of the last 12 months.

CALGARY, Nov. 12, 2012 /CNW/ - Bengal Energy Ltd. (TSX: BNG) ("Bengal" or the "Company") today announced its financial and operating
results for the three and six months ended September 30, 2012. The
Company focused on drilling during the quarter, spending $10 million to
pursue its successful drilling program in Australia.
FISCAL Q2 2013 HIGHLIGHTS:
100% Drilling Success at Cuisinier: Since March 2012, Bengal has drilled four oil producers, resulting in a
drilling success rate of eight for eight in the Cooper Basin of
Australia. The Company is currently producing 325 barrels of oil per
day (bopd) (net to the Company) from two of the newly drilled wells,
under Extended Production Test, while certain regulatory and capacity
constraints limit full production from all the wells. The following
presents the current status of the Company's Cuisinier wells.
The Company is currently trucking its production to a nearby terminal.
The operator of the field is progressing plans for facilities upgrades
and pipeline connection to a large facility at an adjacent field that
should handle production from all wells in the field. The operator is
also applying for a Petroleum Lease ("PL") that will allow all the
wells in the field to produce at their productive capacities. The
Company expects regulatory approval and facilities upgrades to be
completed in the quarter ending June 30, 2013.

Cuisinier Reserves Increase Substantially: An independent reserves update of the quantity of oil reserve volumes
contained on Company lands within the boundaries of the Barta
sub-Block, of Authority to Prospect ("ATP") 752 onshore Australia in
the Cooper/Eromanga Basins in the State of Queensland effective
September 30, 2012, prepared by GLJ Petroleum Consultants Ltd.
recognized 717,000 proved barrels (an increase of 904%), 1,550,000
proved plus probable barrels (an increase of 269%) and 7,512,000 proved
plus probable plus possible barrels (an increase of 614%) to Bengal.
The net present values discounted at 10% amount to $16 million for
proved, $37 million for proved plus probable and $164 million for
proved plus probable plus possible.
Company's New Rig Drills First Well at Tookoonooka: The Company's recently purchased drilling rig, Bengal 1, has been fully
commissioned and, on October 5, 2012 commenced drilling of the first
well on the Company's 100% owned ATP 732P Permit ("Tookoonooka") in the
Cooper Basin. The first exploration well in the Company's Tookoonooka
drilling campaign, Caracal-1, has been cased as a potential oil
producer awaiting testing results.
Bengal Reports Financial Results: The Company reported that revenues in the three and six months ended
September 30, 2012 amounted to $437,000 and $935,000, respectively
compared to $1,017,000 and $2,336,000 respectively in 2011. The lower
revenues resulted from production reductions primarily related to
expiration of Extended Production Tests for the Cuisinier 1, 2 and 3
wells; as mentioned earlier, the regulatory approvals (expected in the
quarter ending June 30, 2013) will allow all the wells in the Cuisinier
Field to produce at their productive capacities. The net loss for the
three and six month periods amounted to ($845,000) or ($0.02) per share
and ($1,056,000) or ($0.02) per share, respectively compared to
($4,247,000) or ($0.08) per share and ($5,308,000) or ($0.10) per
share, respectively. The 2011 losses were impacted by an impairment
loss related to the drilling of two dry holes in 2011 and 2008. The
Company spent $10,299,000 in the three-month period ended September 30,
2012 and $17,625,000 in the six month period ended September 30, 2012
related to the drilling of four Cuisinier wells, the acquisition of the
Rig, seismic acquisition in Australia and India and preparation for
drilling the Caracal-1 well.

Netback is a non-IFRS measure. Netback per boe is calculated by dividing
the revenue and costs in total for the Company by the total production
of the Company measured in boe.
Funds from operations is a non-IFRS measure. The comparable IFRS measure
is cash from operations. A reconciliation of the two measures can be
found in Bengal's management's discussion and analysis for the quarter
ended September 30, 2012.
Bengal offers an attractive portfolio of both lower-risk and high-impact
drilling opportunities. Increasing production from new wells drilled at
Cuisinier is expected to drive operating income and set the stage for
future development. Potential near-term exploration drilling success on
permit ATP 732P could create further momentum. The Company also offers
long-term plays in India to potentially add value in 2013 and onward.
The Company will continue to evaluate accretive production acquisition,
exploration and corporate transaction opportunities within and around
the Company's core areas.

discussion and analysis for the quarter ended September 30, 2012 with

"estimate", or other similar words or statements that certain events
"may" or "will" occur are intended to identify forward-looking

forward-looking statements contained in this news release speak only as
of the date hereof and Bengal does not assume any obligation to
publicly update or revise them to reflect new events or circumstances,
except as may be require pursuant to applicable securities laws.
Barrels of Oil Equivalent When converting natural gas to equivalent barrels of oil, Bengal uses
the widely recognized standard of 6 thousand cubic feet (mcf) to one
barrel of oil (boe). However, a boe may be misleading, particularly if
used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on
an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the
burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as
compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy
equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be
misleading as an indication of value.
Non-IFRS Measurements Within this release references are made to terms commonly used in the
oil and gas industry. Funds from operations, funds from operations per
share and netbacks do not have any standardized meaning under
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) and previous
generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP) and are referred to as
non-IFRS measures. Funds from operations per share is calculated based
on the weighted average number of common shares outstanding consistent
with the calculation of net income (loss) per share. Netbacks equal
total revenue less royalties and operating and transportation expenses
calculated on a boe basis. Management utilizes these measures to
analyze operating performance. The Company's calculation of the
non-IFRS measures included herein may differ from the calculation of
similar measures by other issuers. Therefore, the Company's non-IFRS
measures may not be comparable to other similar measures used by other
issuers. Funds from operations is not intended to represent operating
profit for the period nor should it be viewed as an alternative to
operating profit, net income, cash flow from operations or other
measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with IFRS.
Non-IFRS measures should only be used in conjunction with the Company's
annual audited and interim financial statements.
