EXALL ENERGY CORPORATION UPDATES IMPACT OF SLAVE LAKE FIRES

CALGARY, May 16 /CNW Telbec/ - Exall Energy Corporation ("Exall" or the "Company") (TSX: EE) is providing an update on its Marten Mountain operations in the wake of the fires in and around Slave Lake Alberta.  Exall's public filings can all be found at www.exall.com or www.sedar.com.

Ariel surveillance of the Marten Mountain area indicates that Exall's facilities and operations have NOT currently been impacted by the fires, and are not at this time under threat from the fires. The fires currently appear to be south and east of Exall's Marten Mountain operations. Exall plans to visit Marten Mountain several times over the next few days in an attempt to monitor the situation.

Exall is currently evaluating alternatives that would see it truck its oil production to either of CCS Judy Creek, CCS Mitsue or CCS High Prairie (subject to any Plains Midstream Rainbow Pipeline restrictions) and flow its natural gas production to the CNRL Mitsue Gas Plant, should the Force Majeure situation remain in effect at Enerchem International Inc. This will allow Exall to resume operations at Marten Mountain in as timely a fashion as possible. However, it remains unclear at this time when these operations, as well as drilling operations, will recommence.

As indicated, Exall is continuously monitoring the situation and will update investors with further press releases as additional information becomes available.

Exall's thoughts and prayers remain with those impacted by, and those fighting, the Slave Lake fires.

Reader Advisory

This news release contains forward-looking statements, which are subject to certain risks, uncertainties and assumptions, including those relating to results of operations and financial condition, capital spending, financing sources, commodity prices and costs of production. By their nature, forward-looking statements are subject to numerous risks and uncertainties that could significantly affect anticipated results in the future and, accordingly, actual results may differ materially from those predicted. A number of factors could cause actual results to differ materially from the results discussed in such statements, and there is no assurance that actual results will be consistent with them. Such factors include fluctuating commodity prices, capital spending and costs of production, and other factors described in the Company's most recent Annual Information Form under the heading "Risk Factors" which has been filed electronically by means of the System for Electronic Document Analysis and Retrieval ("SEDAR") located at www.sedar.com. Such forward-looking statements are made as at the date of this news release, and the Company assumes no obligation to update or revise them, either publicly or otherwise, to reflect new events, information or circumstances, except as may be required under applicable securities law.

For the purposes of calculating unit costs, natural gas has been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent (boe) using 6,000 cubic feet equal to one barrel (6:1), unless otherwise stated. The boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method and does not represent a value equivalency; therefore boe may be misleading if used in isolation. This conversion conforms to the Canadian Securities Regulators' National Instrument 51-101 - Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities.
