    HOUSTON, Aug. 27 /CNW/ -- Far East Energy Corporation (OTC Bulletin
Board: FEEC) announced that it has received final approval by the Chinese
Ministry of Commerce (MOFCOM) of two Modification Agreements that extend the
exploration periods of both its Shouyang and Yunnan Production Sharing
Contracts (PSCs) by two years apiece to June 30, 2011.  The Modification
Agreements also revise other terms of the PSCs and the Company has included
the Modification Agreements in the Form 8-K filed with the Securities and
Exchange Commission on August 27, 2009.

extended due to the fact that Far East has been among the most active foreign
companies in CBM exploration over the past five years, nevertheless we are
pleased to have formally obtained extensions allowing us time to further
expand exploration efforts," said Michael R. McElwrath CEO and President of
Far East.
