Blackpool completes winter drilling program



    CALGARY, March 16 /CNW/ - Blackpool Exploration Ltd. (BPX.A: TSX Venture
Exchange) has completed its 2006-2007 winter drilling program. Five wells were
drilled on Company lands resulting in four gas wells and one standing well.
Details of the gas wells are as follows:

    
    Location     Blackpool         Zone          Flow Rate  Status
    --------     Working Interest  ----          ---------  ------
                 ----------------
    Pouce Coupe        20%         Halfway       750 mcfd   Awaits tie-in
    Pouce Coupe      12.8%         Halfway       2.1 mmcfd  Awaits tie-in
    Cecil            21.5%         Charlie Lake  600 mcfd   Awaits tie-in
    Cessford           19%         Mannville     200 mcfd   Awaits tie-in
    

    Blackpool's cumulative share of these gas rates is 586 thousand cubic
feet per day or 97 barrels of oil equivalent per day. All gas wells should be
tied in and on production by mid-April 2007.

    BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE
conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion
method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value
equivalency at the wellhead.

    The TSX Venture Exchange does not accept responsibility for the adequacy
    or accuracy of this release.
