Saxon Oil Operational Update -- October 2008

    DALLAS, Oct. 15 /CNW/ - Saxon Oil Company Ltd. ("Saxon (TSX VENTURE: SXN)
(FRANKFURT: OVG) (BERLIN: OVG) announces ongoing activity in Kansas, New
Mexico, Oklahoma and Texas. In Kansas, Saxon has purchased a 50 % working
interest in 1,440 acres of producing leaseholds located in Ellsworth County,
Kansas in the Green Garden (Lansing) oil field and the Rathbun (Wabaunsee) gas
field. The acreage has eight oil wells and six gas wells plus a gas
compression station and interconnection into an interstate gas pipeline. An
enhanced waterflood is planned for the deeper (3,000 ft) oil wells and
significant workover and drilling activity is anticipated for the multiple
shallow (2,000 ft) gas horizons. Saxon and its partner closed on the
acquisition on September 30, 2008. Mid Kansas Gas Gathering (MKGG), a joint
venture between Central Kansas Gas Gathering, a wholly owned subsidiary of
Saxon Oil Company, and American Energies, will acquire the compression station
and gas interconnection and plans to construct additional gas gathering
systems and facilities in the area.
    In New Mexico, the Eumont State No. 1 continues to flow oil at stabilized
rates. Cumulative oil sales for the first 140 days of production exceeded
26,500 barrels of oil. Saxon owns a 15% working interest and a 12.5% net
revenue interest in this well and offset locations.
    In Oklahoma, the Cimarex Weber State 5-13 located in Caddo County,
Oklahoma reached a total depth of 16,250 feet. The well was evaluated with
electric logs which indicated multiple gas bearing sands in the Skinner, Red
Fork, Morrow and Springer intervals. Production casing was set to total depth
and an initial completion attempt in the Springer sands is planned for late
October. Saxon owns a .002848 % working interest in the Springer completion
attempt but has a 3.44385 % working interest in the up-hole Red Fork sands.
    In Texas, Saxon has executed a farmout of the Heatherwood Prospect in
Burleson and Milam Counties Texas to CH4 Energy II, LLC ("CH4"). The farmout
calls for CH4 to drill a well on the leasehold by December 31, 2008 to a depth
sufficient to test the Navarro formation. Saxon will receive a 25 % back-in
after the payout of all costs incurred by CH4.
