Mystique Energy Reports Financial Results for the Second Quarter of 2008



    CALGARY, Aug. 28 /CNW/ - Mystique Energy, Inc. (MYS:TSX Venture) reports
its financial results for the three months ended June 30, 2008.

    
    Financial results include:
    -   Cash flow for the three months ended June 30, 2008 was $47.8 thousand
        compared to ($1,431.5) thousand for the same period of 2007.
    -   Net earnings for the three months ended June 30, 2008 was
        $43.7 thousand compared to a net loss of $1464.1 thousand for the
        second quarter of 2007.
    

    Complete financial results will be filed on SEDAR later today.
    In other corporate developments, Mystique continues to work with Petro
Energy Corp. to complete the business combination as previously disclosed.

    Use of the term barrels of oil equivalent "boe" may be misleading,
particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1 bbl 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 has not reviewed and does not accept
responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release. This news release
may contain forward-looking information. Actual future results may differ
materially from those contemplated. The risks, uncertainties, and other
factors that could influence actual results are described in documents filed
with regulatory authorities.
