    Result also is pleased to announce the following updates:

        -  Result's current field estimated production volume is
           approximately 1,425 boed, including approximately 115 boed of new
           gas volumes which were recently added in the Company's Clearhills,
           Alberta project area. Approximately 50 boed has been shut-in in
           the greater Peace River Arch area due to wet surface conditions.

        -  Result carries an inventory of approximately 70 development and
           exploration locations. Subject to access conditions and rig
           availability, at least 15 of these locations are expected to be
           drilled during the balance of 2007.

        -  Result's existing bank revolving credit facility is in process of
           an annual review, and based on expanded reserve volumes, it is
           anticipated that the facility will be expanded from its current
           limit of $12.5 million to at least $14 million. The bank facility,
           plus increasing cash flow from operations, gives Result
           flexibility in expanding exploration and development activities,
           and pursuing potential property acquisitions.

        -  Bill Matheson, President & CEO, will be presenting at the upcoming
           SEPAC Oil & Gas Investor conference in Calgary (Westin Hotel) on
           May 30, 2007.

        -  Result's Annual General Meeting will be held at the Calgary
           Petroleum Club on May 29, 2007 at 3:00 PM

    "Gross" totals represent the Company's working interest share of
reserves, before deduction of royalty interests. Estimated Net Present Values
("NPV") are prepared under NI 51-101 for both a Forecast prices and costs and
a Constant prices and costs scenario, and such values are prior to the
provision for income taxes, interest, debt service charges, and general and
administrative expenses. Actual oil and natural gas reserves and future
production of the disclosed oil and natural gas reserves does not represent
the fair market value of these reserves. Result has applied the industry
standard of converting natural gas volumes at six thousand cubic feet per
barrel (6 mcf/bbl) of natural gas to barrels of oil equivalence ("boe"). Boe
units may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. "Mmcfe" is defined
as a million cubic feet equivalent (and is used herein to convert reserves of
oil, natural gas, and natural gas liquids to a common measure).
