VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(CCNMatthews - Feb. 2, 2006) -

Company") announced today that recent tests have confirmed the production as
reported in news of the acquisition of three wells in Beauregard Parish, La.
(see news release dated October 26, 2005). From Company tests, the three wells

barrels of water per day. Since purchasing interest in this field, the Company

and disposal fees to a commercial salt water disposal well will no longer be
Geological studies by Gilbert Talafuse Petroleum Geologist, have further
resulted in a recommendation to recomplete one of the wells in an apparent
virgin formation above the current perforations. According to the studies, this
formation could yield 150,000 barrels of recoverable oil in this one well from
this formation alone. Other evidence indicates that there may be additional
productive formations in all of the wells. Studies are continuing to evaluate
all potential productive zones. Based on the above referenced recommendations,
the Company has engaged a workover rig to commence work on the well later this

to ascertain the ultimate reserves that may or may not be produced in the well.
