Pemberton announces changes to the board of directors

    CALGARY, June 23 /CNW/ - (TSX.V:PBT, FSE:P5W) Pemberton Energy Ltd.
("Pemberton") is pleased to announce that it has appointed Mr. Matthew Dodwell
to the Board of Directors. Mr. Dodwell brings in extensive oilfield industry
experience. He entered the Oil Patch in 1990 where he had begun a career in
the service rig industry and moved back and forth between the rigs and
construction/maintenance companies for several years. In 1995 Mr. Dodwell
ventured into the energy management sector where he started a career in
oilfield management. After several years of accumulating facility and field
management knowledge, Mr. Dodwell founded First Choice Oilfield Services Inc
("First Choice"). In 1998 First Choice experienced a large growth spurt and
started to expand, and within the next year had accumulated gross revenues
well over a million dollars a year with supervision contracts as well as prime
contractor positions: Norcen Energy, Union Pacific Resources, Gascan
Resources, Forte Oil and Gas, NCE resources just to name a few companies in
which contracts were held.
    In 1998, First Choice had also expanded into the oilfield maintenance
sector where it serviced many of the larger energy companies in Alberta and
British Columbia such as: Conoco Phillips Canada, Renaissance Energy, Forte
Energy, Ventus Energy, Numac Oil and Gas, Pennwest Energy, N.C.E Resources,
Gascan Resources, Northstar Energy, Storm Energy, and others. Many of the
larger contracts included: facility shutdowns, facility expansions, major
modifications and expansions to facilities, installation and removal of
production facilities, pump jack installation and removal, water flood
installation and many other services. Matthew Dodwell, President of First
Choice, has also been involved with Pemberton Energy Ltd. since 2004 as an
operator of our Panny well.
    Mr. Dodwell states: "Pemberton is a vibrant junior oil and gas company
with really great potential. With the acceptance of a directorship I bring
extensive oil and gas experience to our ever-growing team. I believe this is
an asset needed to help secure a positive future for all involved with
Pemberton. As part of our quest for natural resources, Pemberton is currently
in discussions with private energy companies, in which we are interested in
various producing properties throughout Alberta. We will also be looking at
bringing back abandoned wells that were put to bed long before their time,
wells where in most cases take very little to rework and bring back into
production with significant financial upsides. With the price of oil at
$ 100.00 + per barrel many of the targets we have been evaluating have some
very respective potential and many of the targets have production
infrastructure in place. Pemberton has reached another milestone, one of many
more to come. Pemberton is now in a much better position to move forward with
future projects, and will continue with our current projects in the near
    Pemberton also wishes to announce that Mr. Al Kjemhus has tendered his
resignation as a director of Pemberton due to other business engagements. The
board of Pemberton wishes Mr. Kjemhus continued success in all of his future
    Pemberton Energy Ltd's principal business is the acquisition, exploration
and development of petroleum properties. The company continues to focus on its
primary corporate objective: the creation of value for shareholders by
identifying oil and gas accumulations with relatively low geological risk but
with substantial reserve potential.

    On Behalf of Pemberton Energy Ltd.
