Saxon Oil Announces Participation in New Mexico Exploration Well

    DALLAS, June 20 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd ("Saxon") (TSX VENTURE:SXN)
(FRANKFURT:SXN) (BERLIN:SXN) (PINK SHEETS:SXNOF) has agreed to participate in
the drilling of a 5,000-ft wildcat in Lea County, New Mexico. This well is
located near the western edge of Eumont Field and will target Yates,
Grayburg-San Andres, Seven Rivers, and Queen Sand objectives. The proposed
location will test a stratigraphic anomaly identified by high quality 3-D
seismic data. Saxon will have a 20% working interest in this prospect.

    Eumont Field was originally two fields named Eunice and Monument
discovered in 1929. In 1953, the fields were consolidated and re-named Eumont
Field by the New Mexico Oil and Gas Commission. Both stratigraphic and
structural gas and oil reservoirs are present in this multi-pay field which is
developed on a large north-south trending structural anticline plunging to the
west. The field is a prolific producer of oil and gas and has been developed
with over 1,300 wells. Wells adjacent and east of this prospect have
cumulative production exceeding 250,000 barrels of oil equivalent. The trap
for the field is stratigraphic in nature and developed at relatively shallow

    Richard G. Green, president and CEO of Saxon said, "The excellent quality
of the reprocessed 3-D seismic image, coupled with outstanding reserve
recovery in the area from multiple objective formations, makes this prospect
highly attractive." Additional offset locations may exist and Saxon
anticipates additional opportunities will develop. Saxon expects drilling of
this well in the 4th quarter of 2007.
