Doral Energy Corp. Closes Eddy County, New Mexico Acquisition

MIDLAND, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Oct. 29, 2009) - Doral Energy Corp. (OTCBB:DRLY) ("Doral" or "the Company"), announced today that its subsidiary, Doral West Corp. ("Doral West") has closed an acquisition ("the Acquisition") with Blugrass Energy, Inc. ("Blugrass") and acquired a 40.0% working interest ("WI") in all leases owned by Blugrass in and around the Cave Pool Unit located in Eddy County, New Mexico (the "Cave Pool Unit properties"), effective October 12, 2009. Blugrass Energy and Doral West now own 60% and 40% working interests, respectively, in the approximately 2,800 acres of the Cave Pool Unit properties, located approximately 5 miles northwest of Loco Hills, NM. Doral Energy Corp. will be the Operator of the Cave Pool Unit properties. As consideration for this transaction, Doral has agreed to be responsible for acquiring lease title opinions for the leases, having an initial independent third-party reserve report prepared for the Acquisition properties, and share proprietary geological and engineering data and information with Blugrass to enhance the redevelopment of the Cave Pool Unit properties. With this Acquisition, Doral Energy Corp. now owns a leasehold position of approximately 10,600 gross acres (8,920 net acres) in Eddy County, New Mexico.

The Cave Pool Unit properties are adjacent to 3 leases owned and operated by Doral which produce from 6 wells in the Grayburg and San Andres formations and contain 9 proved undeveloped ("PUD") drilling locations in the Square Lake Field. The Cave Pool Unit properties currently produce approximately 10 BOEPD (barrels of oil equivalent per day) from a total of 39 wells which were drilled on 40-acre well spacing in the Grayburg formation of the Grayburg Jackson Pool. Currently 10 of these wells have been identified for mechanical repair jobs and will be reworked by Doral Energy in the near future, adding to the daily production from the properties. A redevelopment of the Cave Pool Unit as a 20-acre 5-spot Grayburg waterflood project could potentially add approximately 100 development drilling locations and potential gross reserves in excess of 3.0 million barrels of oil equivalent.

H. Patrick Seale, President and Chief Operating Officer of Doral, states, "Doral Energy is very pleased to successfully close this Acquisition quickly with our new partner, Blugrass Energy. These properties fit well within our existing Eddy County properties and will allow Doral to operate the Cave Pool Unit wells very economically and efficiently along with our existing 186 wells in the Artesia-Vacuum Trend. The exploitation and redevelopment of the Cave Pool Unit properties should be being very beneficial to both Doral Energy and Blugrass Energy."

About Doral Energy Corp.

Doral Energy Corp. (OTCBB:DRLY) is an oil and gas exploitation and production company headquartered in Midland, Texas.

Doral focuses on identifying acquisitions that generate immediate cash flow from production, but which also have strong proved developed non-producing and proved undeveloped reserves that can be tapped for significant growth. The prolific Permian Basin of Texas and New Mexico is the geographic region of focus for the Company's future acquisition activity. Doral's first producing assets, the Hanson Properties in Eddy County, New Mexico, located in the northwestern Permian Basin of New Mexico, are currently producing 135 BOEPD.
