Cirrus Energy Corporation Netherlands Field Acquisition

    CALGARY, Aug. 13 /CNW/ - Cirrus Energy Corporation ("Cirrus") (TSXV: CYR)
is pleased to announce that its wholly owned subsidiary, Cirrus Energy
Nederland B.V., has closed an agreement with Petro-Canada Netherlands B.V.
("Petro-Canada") to acquire its 25% non-operated interest in that part of the
L8-D Field that may potentially extend into the L8b licence. The consideration
for the acquisition takes the form of an overriding royalty payable out of
future production revenues and the drilling of one appraisal well on the L8-D
Field. With this acquisition, Cirrus now holds a 50% interest in that part of
the L8-D Field that potentially extends into the L8b licence.

licence. The well was drill stem tested at rates up to 430,000 Nm3/day (16.1
MMscf/day) of gas from a Rotliegend sandstone reservoir at a depth around 3850
metres. Water depth at the location is 30 metres.
    Further appraisal of the discovery is considered to be required in order
to establish the extent of the field and whether development is commercially
