Desmarais Increases Land Position

TSX Venture Exchange Symbol: DES

CALGARY, May 31, 2011 /CNW/ - Desmarais Energy Corporation (TSXV: DES) (the "Corporation" or "Desmarais") was successful at a recent land sale, adding 1120 acres of prospective lands at Barrhead on which Desmarais already has 3-D seismic control.  A number of drilling locations for both oil and gas targets have been identified with this acquisition.  Desmarais has accumulated more than 15,700 net acres of crown leases in this core area, typified by oil reservoirs and liquids-rich natural gas.  Based upon recent vertical wells successfully completed as oil wells, several new locations have been identified as potential horizontal drilling candidates.

The Corporation has built access roads and is working on leases to prepare for the first four of eight workovers and completions planned for the company's Barrhead core area. Operations are expected to commence in about one week or as weather permits.  The testing and evaluating of several zones in a new well drilled in March 2011 is a priority.  Results will be made available on a timely basis.
