    DALLAS, Feb. 5 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd. ("Saxon") (TSX VENTURE:SXN)
(FRANKFURT:OVG) (BERLIN:OVG) announced today the successful completion of the
Williams 3-9 well in the Lasley Field. The Williams 3-9, drilled in Caddo
County, Okla., to a total depth of 13,900 ft, was completed in the Red Fork
formation and began flowing to sales in late January 2008. The well is flowing
at a rate of 1.4 million cubic feet per day (MMcfd) and 11 barrels of oil per
day with a 2,500-psi tubing pressure. Saxon owns a 4.4 % working interest in
the Williams 3-9.
    Saxon also announced the completion of the Tri-C Resources
Jackson-Williams 3 well in Jackson County, Tex. During production testing in
early February 2008 the well flowed at rates ranging from 1.0 to 1.7 MMcf per
day with flowing tubing pressures of 5,000 to 7,200 psi through chokes varying
from 5/64- to 8/64-inch in size. The well is currently being flared, but
should be connected to the pipeline and flowing to sales in the next few
weeks. Saxon owns slightly less than 1% working interest in the
Jackson-Williams 3.
    Richard G Green, president and CEO of Saxon, commented "We are pleased
with the results of these wells and will monitor the production to identify
possible offset drilling locations. The wells will have a positive impact on
future cash flows."
