Gallic provides update on operations in Tunisia

    Gallic Energy Ltd. (TSX Venture Exchange: GLE.A)

    CALGARY, Sept. 28 /CNW/ - Gallic Energy Ltd. ("Gallic") (formerly Exceed
Capital Holdings Ltd.) announces that the operator has completed testing of
two intervals at the Bhayra Rigo No. 1 well on the Jorf permit in the
dolomitized and fractured upper reef zone where circulation loss had occurred
during drilling. Recovery from the tests consisted of mixed drilling fluids
and formation water. After review of seismic and well data, Gallic, together
with the operator and other partners have decided to deepen the Bahyra Rigo
No. 1 well by approximately 300 metres to test a lower reef unit.
    Upon completion of drilling operations, the operator, Gallic and other
partners will have the option to renew the Jorf permit for an additional
2.5 year period. Data gathered from the exploratory well, together with
seismic review, will be used to assess the potential of several un-drilled
Permian structures which have been identified on this very large but sparsely
drilled permit.
    The common shares of Gallic are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under
the symbol GLE.A. There are 135,094,982 shares issued and outstanding.
