Emerald Bay announces new well at Ferrybank Alberta

    CALGARY, Dec. 14 /CNW/ - Emerald Bay Energy Inc. (TSX Venture: EBY) is
pleased to report on recent exploration activities.


    The Company has commenced drilling operations on a Glauconitic test well
(28% Working Interest) in section 23-45-26 W4. This directional well will be
drilled to an approximate total vertical depth of 1470 meters, and drilling
time is estimated to be 8 days. This well has multi-zone potential that
includes the Belly River, Cardium, and Glauconitic formations. This well
directly offsets 2 productive wells. To the Northwest, a Cardium well drilled
in 1999, after clean-up, had an initial production rate over 3.5 Mmcf/day. To
the Southeast, a Glauconitic well drilled in 2006 had an initial production
rate over 1.2 Mmcf/day.

    Nevis Alberta Update

    Perforation operations are scheduled to take place on the 4 recently
drilled CBM wells in section 21-39-22 W4 just before the Christmas holiday.
After the holiday, the wells will be fracture stimulated, with flare and
testing activities scheduled to take place before year-end. Facility
installations have commenced on the leases and it is anticipated that pipeline
construction will begin in the next 3 to 5 days.
    Emerald Bay's geological, engineering and land team continues to evaluate
other development and exploration prospects in Central and Southern Alberta,
as well as South Texas.
