Savanna served with legal claim


    CALGARY, March 31 /CNW/ - Savanna Energy Services Corp. ("Savanna")
announced today that it and its Board of Directors have been served with court
documents filed on behalf of a shareholder effectively seeking a declaration
of the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta that there are sufficient grounds to
require Savanna to pursue an action against current and former directors of
Savanna for damages relating to allegedly back-dated options. The action seeks
specified damages of approximately $2.8 million, unspecified punitive damages
and related remedies.
    In consultation with its counsel, and in reviewing its stock option
granting practices, Savanna is of the opinion that the application for the
declaration and the related claim are entirely without merit. Savanna intends
to vigorously defend both the application and, if necessary, any related

    Headquartered in Calgary, Alberta, Savanna's principal operations are in
Canada, although Savanna also carries on operations in the United States.
Savanna is a leading drilling and well servicing contractor maintaining a
modern proprietary equipment offering with industry leading First Nations
