well in the Salsabil Field spudded on August 27, 2007 utilizing a new drilling
rig, Z-40. Total target depth is 3,200 meters. It is expected that the well

drilling at 1,262 meters and is expected to reach target depth of 2,100 meters
by mid-September. It will take several more weeks to complete testing of the

area of operations is in Egypt, where it has a 100% operating interest in the
Issaran Oilfield, a significant heavy oil development opportunity. In

it is participating in the development of a natural gas/condensate discovery.



    Except for statements of historical fact, all statements in this news
release - including, without limitation, statements regarding the Transaction
and future plans and objectives of Rally - are forward-looking statements that
involve various risks and uncertainties. There can be no assurance that such

differ materially from those anticipated in such statements. Important factors
that could cause actual results to differ materially from anticipated results
include risks and uncertainties most of which are beyond Rally's control such
as: risks relating to the Transaction; estimates of reserves and recoveries;
production rates and operating cost assumptions; development risks and costs;
the risk of commodity price and currency fluctuations; general economic and
industry conditions; political and regulatory risks; environmental risks;

    In conformity with Canadian Securities Administrators National Instrument
51-101, natural gas volumes have been converted to equivalent barrels of oil
("boe") using a conversion ratio of six thousand cubic feet ("mcf") to one
boe. This ratio is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily
applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the
wellhead. Readers are cautioned that boe's may be misleading, particularly if
used in isolation.

       The TSX has neither approved nor disapproved of the contents of this
