Flagship announces closing of property sale

    CALGARY, Sept. 13 /CNW/ - Flagship Energy Inc. ("Flagship" or the
"Company") (TSXV - FG.A and FG.B) is pleased to announce that it has closed
its previously announced disposition of certain of its petroleum and natural
gas properties in Southeast Saskatchewan for cash consideration of
$25.1 million, including closing adjustments. The average production from
these properties for the second quarter 2007 was 478 BOE/d, with the
disposition including approximately 16,000 acres of undeveloped land. The
proceeds will be used to repay a portion of the Company's bank debt.

    Flagship is an emerging oil and gas company focused on the acquisition,
exploration, exploitation and development of oil and natural gas in Western
Canada. Flagship's business plan is to grow reserves and production to
increase shareholder value through a focused and balanced exploration program,
strategic acquisitions and value-added exploitation.

    NOTE: Natural gas and liquids reserves and volumes are converted to a
common unit of measure on a basis of six thousand cubic feet ("Mcf") of gas to
one barrel (bbl) of oil. Disclosure provided herein in respect of barrels of
oil equivalent ("BOE") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A
BOE conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl is based on an energy equivalency
conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not
represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
