CALGARY, Aug. 26 /CNW/ - Rodinia Oil Corp. ("Rodinia") today announced
that Dr. James W. Buckee, former President and CEO of Talisman Energy Inc.,
has recently joined its Board of Directors.
"Dr. Buckee brings a wealth of knowledge and industry contacts to
Rodinia," said Paul Bennett, President of Rodinia. "His experience in the
international oil and gas industry from exploration to development is second
to none. We are thrilled that he has chosen Rodinia as one of his first North
American boards on which to serve since leaving Talisman. By joining the
Rodinia board, Dr. Buckee is demonstrating his continued interest in the
upstream energy business."
Dr. Buckee spent two decades at the helm of Talisman Energy Inc., one of
Canada's largest independent oil and gas corporations, retiring on

Rodinia is a junior oil and natural gas corporation focused solely on
high impact onshore exploration in Australia. Rodinia has exclusive access to
over 23 million gross acres of under-explored lands within the Officer and
Georgina Basins in Australia, which may have significant hydrocarbon potential
based upon Rodinia's recently acquired seismic data, known geologic history
and the existence of analogous basins in Oman and in Siberia, Russia. Rodinia
is based in Calgary, Alberta.
