This press release contains forward-looking statements. More particularly, this press release contains statements concerning the anticipated date for the closing of the Offering and the anticipated use of proceeds therefrom. The forward-looking statements contained in this document are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by Culane, including: (i) with respect to the anticipated closing date of the Offering, expectations and assumptions concerning timing of receipt of required approvals and the satisfaction of other conditions to the completion of the Offering and (ii) with respect to the anticipated use of proceeds from the Offering. Although Culane believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because Culane can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct. Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals or satisfy the conditions to closing the Offering, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Certain of these risks are set out in more detail in Culane's Annual Information Form which has been filed on SEDAR and can be accessed at www.sedar.com. The forward-looking statements contained in this document are made as of the date hereof and Culane undertakes no obligation to update publicly or revise any forward-looking statements or information, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, unless so required by applicable securities laws.

The securities being offered have not been and will not be registered under the U.S. Securities Act of 1933, as amended, and may not be offered or sold in the United States absent registration or applicable exemption from the registration requirements. This press release shall not constitute an offer to sell or the solicitation of an offer to buy nor shall there be any sale of the securities in any jurisdiction in which such offer, solicitation or sale would be unlawful.

Neither the TSX Venture Exchange nor its Regulation Services Provider accepts responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
