Pouce Coupe Play Drilled

    CALGARY, March 13 /CNW/ - Blackpool Exploration Ltd. has drilled two
wells at Pouce Coupe on the Peace River Arch in northwestern Alberta. The
first well was drilled and flow tested at a stabilized gas rate of 750 mcfd
from a sandstone reservoir in the Triassic age Halfway Formation. Blackpool's
working interest in this well is 20%. The second well was drilled
approximately 1.5 miles to the southeast of the first and was flow tested at a
stabilized gas rate of 2.1 million cubic feet per day from sandstone within
the Halfway Formation. Blackpool's working interest in the second well is
12.8%. Both wells should be tied into a gas gathering and processing system
and commence production by April 15, 2007.

    BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE
conversion ratio of 6 mcf: 1bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion
method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value
equivalency at the wellhead.
