and connect each commercial well, and will earn an 86.175% working interest in
and to the wells and surrounding acreage with a 62.046% net revenue interest

    The Company retains a 9.575% carried working interest, and upon 110%
payout of each commercial well (recoupment of 110% of the drilling, completion
and pipeline interconnection costs paid by Amerpro), the Company shall be
entitled to an additional 15.0% and 10.8% working interest and net revenue
interest, respectively, in such commercial wells and surrounding acreage. The
Agreement provides for closing on or before August 1, 2008 ("Closing") or such
other date as maybe agreed by the Company and Amerpro. The Agreement is
subject to certain conditions including the completion of due diligence and
TSX Venture Exchange approval.
    Pursuant to the Agreement, Amerpro will pay the Company $1,200,000 as a
prospect generation fee, with $100,000 paid upon execution of the Agreement,
and the remaining $1,100,000 on Closing. Amerpro also has the option to buy
the right to participate in additional wells beyond the four Prospect Wells
upon payment of an option fee of $3,700,000 due on or prior to Closing. If the
option is exercised, the option fee is payable directly to Metage Funds
Limited and NCIM Limited to satisfy the Company's indebtedness to them under
one-year convertible secured notes issued on September 10, 2007.
    Prior to Closing on August 1, 2008, Amerpro may terminate the Agreement
and forfeit their initial $100,000. The Agreement also provides that if

them free and clear liens and encumbrances. Amerpro's obligations under the

Company's current expectations as to future events. The forward-looking events
and circumstances discussed in this press release might not occur, and actual
