Emerald Bay cases oil well in Medina County Texas



    CALGARY, May 7 /CNW/ - Emerald Bay Energy Inc. (TSX Venture: EBY) (the
"Company") is pleased to report on recent drilling activities in South Texas.

    Medina County, Texas

    The Company has drilled, cased and cemented its previously announced
well, Oscar C 3EB. The Company is encouraged by the oil shows during drilling
operations, and the open-hole logs. Multiple prospective pay zones have been
identified, including the Escondido, Olmos, and Anacacho. Perforation,
stimulation, and testing operations are expected to begin within the next two
weeks. Emerald Bay is the operator and a 50% working interest participant.
    "We have always been very confident that the Oscar C lease had good Olmos
oil production based on offset production. Now, based on the good oil shows
and logs, the Escondido and Anacacho zones have the potential to provide some
additional upside to this low-risk development in South Texas", stated Shelby
Beattie, President and CEO.
    Emerald Bay Energy Inc., based in Calgary, is a junior oil and gas
producer with production properties in Western Canada and South Texas. The
common shares of Emerald Bay trade on the TSX Venture Exchange under the
