Pacific Stratus Announces Updated Test Results for La Creciente

    TORONTO, March 23 /CNW/ - Pacific Stratus Energy Ltd. (TSX: PSE)
announced today that Halliburton Latin America S.A. has issued the final
report of the drill steam test executed at the La Creciente-1 (LC-1) discovery
well, increasing initial all open flow (AOF) estimates from 71.8 to
208.1 million cubic feet of gas per day. The test was conducted between the
10,933 and 11,572 foot interval within the Ciénaga de Oro Formation. Actual
production may differ from initial test results.
    The previous AOF estimates announced November 14, 2006 were based on
pressure data measured at the surface of the well head. Halliburton has now
processed the data collected during testing and has calculated an updated AOF
value using pressure data collected at reservoir depth during the final
stabilized flow period of the test.
    The Company is planning to spud the La Creciente-2 appraisal well during
the first week of April 2007.
