    DALLAS, April 18 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd. ("Saxon") (TSX VENTURE:
SXN) announced today it has formed a strategic alliance with Wichita,
Kansas-based Milestone Energy, LLC (Milestone) to pursue energy-related
activities in Kansas. As part of this alliance, Milestone will provide oil and
gas consulting services, geologic evaluations of potential areas of interest,
research on available acreage and leaseholds, technology assessments and
feasibility studies of surface equipment as well as field and pipeline
infrastructures. For its part, Saxon will provide working capital, financial
and operational oversight, reservoir engineering and act as operator in any
development programs.

    Shallow drilling objectives, favorable lease terms, excellent per well
average reserves, and proximity to infrastructure make Kansas an excellent
growth area for Saxon. "We are excited about aligning with Milestone in
Kansas," commented Richard G. Green, president and CEO of Saxon. "Kansas is an
excellent state for acquiring and developing low-cost oil and gas reserves.
Saxon has extensive experience and knowledge of Kansas which we will leverage
in this strategic alliance."

    Historically, Kansas ranks fifth among states in the United States in
cumulative production with over 30 trillion cubic feet of gas (Tcf) and over
6.6 billion barrels of oil produced to date. Saxon will begin work in central
Kansas, where significant oil and gas reserves remain. In addition, central
Kansas holds some of the largest reserves of helium in the world, a quickly
depleting commodity that currently sells for more than $70 per thousand cubic
