Deepwell announces EUB approval of Claresholm facility


    CALGARY, June 25 /CNW/ - Deepwell Energy Services Trust ("Deepwell" or
the "Trust") (TSX:DWL.UN) announced today that it has received approval from
the Alberta Energy and Utilities Board (EUB) to construct and operate its
proposed oilfield waste management facility near Claresholm, Alberta.
Construction is slated to commence in early July 2007, with completion planned
approximately six months after the start of construction.
    The Claresholm site is located in an active region of oil and natural gas
production and exploration which is not currently served by any third-party
oilfield waste management facility in the local area. The planned Deepwell
facility, expected to be operational in the first quarter of 2008, would be
Deepwell's fourth facility.
    As announced on June 14, 2007, Deepwell intends to fund the estimated
$9 million construction cost of the facility and other initiatives through a
private placement of $3.5 million as well as a rights offering. For further
information on the private placement and rights offering, please refer to
Deepwell's Preliminary Prospectus, dated June 14, 2007. The prospectus and
additional information about the Trust are available at and on
