               DRILLING COMPLETED - COMPLETION DESIGN UNDERWAY

    TSX: PBC
    

    MONTREAL, Feb. 6 /CNW Telbec/ - PEBERCAN INC. (the "Company"),
(TSX : PBC) The Company is proud to announce that drilling of the
Santa Cruz 305 well is completed and shows positive results. The well was spud
on October 20, 2007 and completed on January 11, 2008, after which a testing
period and multizonal completion were achieved in order to isolate several
zones. Initial production totals 881 barrels per day of 10.2(degrees)API
density oil.
    Following the successful drilling by Sherritt of two Puerto Escondido
2nd duplex wells, which border the Canasi field, the Company drilled the
Canasi 100 well to ensure development of new reserves on the 2nd duplex zone
in the Canasi field. By the end of November 2007, the well reached a total
length of 5 090 meters (for a vertical depth of 2377m) and the data shows a
70% oil saturation on approximately 1 400 meters. This well produced water and
oil for a few hours before testing was interrupted due to technical problems.
A completion is being designed for the current open hole and will be
implemented during this month of February 2008.
