Shelton Canada Corp. updates operations in Ukraine

    CALGARY, June 23 /CNW/ - Shelton Canada Corp. ("Shelton" or the
"Company") (TSXV symbol "STO") is pleased to announce that the second of the
ongoing development wells in the Lelyaki Oil Field (Well No. 307), in Eastern
Ukraine is expected to spud within the next ten days. The well has a projected
total depth of 1,960 meters and it is estimated that it will require 45 to
60 days to drill at a cost of $1.6 million CAD (net $720,000 CAD). Shelton has
a 45 percent working interest in the well through its ownership in Kashtan
Petroleum Ltd. The previous development well (Well No. 304), located
approximately 2 kilometers north east of the new well was on production within
60 days of completion of drilling and has averaged 162 bopd (net 73 bopd) from
January 1, 2008 to May 31, 2008.
    In other news, the Company has reviewed the recently announced changes to
the royalty regime for oil production in Ukraine and based on May 2008 sales
the Company expects its netback will increase by approximately ten percent as
a result of the positive changes to legislation.
    In light of this change, the Company is reassessing its 2008 capital
expenditures budget and expects to update the market in due course.
