    HOUSTON, Sept. 17 /CNW/ - Ausam Energy Corporation ("Ausam" or the
"Company") announces today that it has made a gas condensate discovery on its
Nolte Marsh prospect in Liberty County, Texas. The prospect was drilled to a
depth of 13,330 feet by Square Mile Energy L.L.C. (37.5% and operator) under a
Joint Operating Agreement with Ausam (40%), Petro Real (17.5%), and 100 Wall
Energy Partners (5%). The prospect tested the Yegua/Cook Mountain sands and
encountered an estimated 35 feet of net pay. The well is expected to be
completed and tied into nearby production facilities for processing and sales.

pleased to announce the success at the Nolte Marsh prospect, which exposes the
Company to reserve and production growth and is a good start to the currently
proposed drilling program in Texas."
