Brek Energy Corporation: Nathan Oil Partners and Chesapeake Exploration Limited Partnership Reach Agreement on Natural Gas Prospect in Edwards County, Texas

RENO, NEVADA--(CCNMatthews - May 12, 2006) - Brek Energy Corporation (PINK SHEETS:BREK). We are pleased to announce that Brek Energy-controlled Vallenar Energy Corporation, through its operating company Nathan Oil Partners LP, has signed an agreement with Chesapeake Exploration Limited Partnership on the Rocksprings Prospect in Edwards County, Texas. Nathan Oil has agreed to assign all of its interest in the leases below a depth of 1,500 feet to allow Chesapeake the opportunity to explore for oil and natural gas on the property. The assignment is subject to Nathan Oil's right to a 25% working interest in every well that Chesapeake drills on the property. Chesapeake will earn their interest in the leases when they have successfully completed a well capable of producing hydrocarbons in commercial quantities.

Chesapeake will drill the first ten wells bearing all of the costs. When they have recovered 100% of the costs from production, Nathan Oil will back-in with a 25% working interest in the wells. At this point, Nathan may participate with a 25% working interest in all future wells drilled, or may back in after payout for a 6.5% working interest in lieu of non-consent penalties.

Chesapeake will conduct a 3-D seismic survey over an area that includes the acreage covered by the leases, bearing the entire cost and expense. Chesapeake will process, transport and market the natural gas produced from any commercial wells on the leases, and will immediately begin to build or procure a pipeline to transport the natural gas to market.

"The recent Ellenburger natural gas discovery wells on leases adjacent to the Vallenar's Rocksprings Prospect shifted the focus from heavy oil to natural gas," said Rick Jeffs, Brek Energy's CEO. "Given the competitive drilling and well completion environment in the oil and gas industry, Vallenar is fortunate to have this opportunity to work with Chesapeake, with its considerable experience and success in the oil and gas industry. As for the heavy oil, in the initial well, Chesapeake will provide an array of logs and sidewall cores in the shallow oil zone covered by Nathan leases but not part of the leases assigned under the Chesapeake agreement."
