Saxon Oil Activates Gas Gathering System

    DALLAS, June 4 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd ("Saxon") (TSX VENTURE: SXN)
(FRANKFURT:SXN) (BERLIN:SXN) (PINK SHEETS:SXNOF) announced today that its
wholly owned subsidiary, Central Kansas Gas Gathering Company, LLC ("CKGG"),
is activating its 100-mile gas gathering system in central Kansas and will
begin delivering natural gas within the next 30 days. In accordance with the
terms of the gas purchase contract, CKGG will deliver up to 2 million cubic
feet per day. Revenues from the gathering system should initially increase
Saxon's gross revenues by as much as 20%.
    CKGG acquired the gathering system and associated compression facilities
in June 2007. "We're thrilled about reactivating the gathering system,"
commented Steven D. Moore, president of CKGG. "We've worked hard over the past
twelve months preparing to turn on the system and are excited about the
revenue, reserves and opportunity this asset will contribute to Saxon."
    In late 2006 many Kansas gas producers and their connecting gas gathering
systems, including the system CKGG purchased, were adversely affected by the
unexpected shut-down of a major transport system. During the months since
purchasing the system, CKGG has diligently searched for markets for low BTU
gas in central Kansas before entering into this gas contract. Prior to the
gathering system being shut in, the system handled about 600,000 cubic feet of
gas per day, all of it coming from third-party producers. The system has an
estimated capacity in excess of 5 million cubic feet per day. Saxon plans to
increase throughput by drilling and producing gas wells.
    Saxon currently has production totaling more than 245 bbl of oil
equivalent per day (boed) from over 100 wells located in Texas, New Mexico,
North Dakota, Oklahoma, and Kansas. In addition, Saxon owns a 20% membership
interest in AleAnna Resources LLC, which has a significant acreage position in
the Po Valley, Italy.
