ENERGEN TO PROVIDE COALBED METHANE CONSULTING IN UNITED KINGDOM

 ENERGEN TO PROVIDE COALBED METHANE CONSULTING IN UNITED KINGDOM
 BIRMINGHAM, Ala., Sept. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Taurus Exploration UK Limited has signed a technical services agreement with Eastern Generation Services Limited (EGSL).
 Taurus will assist EGSL in the evaluation of its coalbed methane license position in the United Kingdom where EGSL was awarded exploration licenses in five areas by the Department of Trade and Industry earlier this year.
 Taurus Exploration UK Limited is a wholly owned subsidiary of Energen Corporation's Taurus Exploration Inc. EGSL is a wholly owned subsidiary of Eastern Electricity plc, largest of the 12 regional electric companies in the United Kingdom.
 As technical consultant, Taurus will evaluate geologic information and make recommendations related to well site location, drilling and testing during their exploratory efforts.
 Taurus Exploration is the leading coalbed methane operator in Alabama's Black Warrior Basin and has been involved in the exploration and development of this nonconventional source of natural gas since 1985. During the past year, Taurus has expanded its nonconventional resource activities to include operating and consulting for others. This agreement allows Taurus to expand its coalbed methane involvement outside the United States.
 "We are pleased to play a role in exploring the coalbed methane potential in England," said Rex J. Lysinger, Energen's chairman and chief executive officer. "Through Taurus, we have spent the last seven years developing coalbed methane in Alabama and believe we can make a significant contribution as a consultant to others in the Black Warrior Basin and elsewhere.
 "We feel our experience in the Black Warrior Basin will lend itself particularly well to EGSL's program, as these coal seams share many similiarities with those in Alabama."
 Energen (NYSE: EGN), a diversified energy holding company with headquarters in Birmingham, Ala., is involved in two major lines of business: natural gas distribution and oil and gas exploration and production.
