    CALGARY, Nov. 7 /CNW/ - Southern Pacific Resource Corp. (the
"Corporation") (STP - TSX Venture) announces new terms to replace the
previously announced "bought deal" financing. The new financing terms include
the same syndicate of underwriters of Canaccord Corporation, Orion Securities
Inc. and Genuity Capital Markets to purchase, on a "bought deal" basis,
27,323,000 common shares of the Corporation at a price of C$1.83 per common
share for gross proceeds of approximately C$50 million and 4,525,000 common
shares on a flow-through basis at a price of $2.21 per flow-through common
share for gross proceeds of approximately C$10 million. The aggregate proceeds
from the bought deal financing will be approximately C$60 million. In
addition, the Corporation has granted the underwriters an over-allotment
option to acquire additional common shares and flow-through common shares at a
price of C$1.83 per common share and additional flow-through common shares at
a price of C$2.21 per flow-through common share at any time within 30 days of
the closing date, provided that the aggregate proceeds from the additional
common shares and additional flow-through common shares shall result in
additional gross proceeds up to a maximum of C$5 million. Total gross proceeds
of the financing, assuming full exercise of the over-allotment option will be
approximately C$65 million. The offering is scheduled to close on or about
November 27, 2007, subject to regulatory approval.

exploration and development of its Alberta oil sands assets and for general
corporate purposes.
