SALT LAKE CITY, UT--(Marketwire - August 7, 2008) - FX Energy, Inc. (NASDAQ: FXEN) today reported results of the logs on the Kromolice-1 well in western Poland. The logs from the well indicate a net pay of between 50 and 65 meters. Porosity in the well is from 11% to 22%. Permeability is from 0.1 mD to 33 mD.

David Pierce, president of FX Energy, stated, "The pay thickness in this well is bigger than we expected. Obviously, we are excited about this discovery based upon what we have seen from the drill stem tests and logs of the well. More work is needed before we can determine how meaningful this discovery is. We will continue to provide additional information on the Kromolice-1 well as it becomes available."

The Polish Oil and Gas Company owns 51% of the well and is the operator. FX Energy owns 49%.

This report contains forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements are not guarantees. For example, exploration, drilling, development, construction or other projects or operations may be subject to the successful completion of technical work; environmental, governmental or partner approvals; equipment availability, or other things that are or may be beyond the control of the Company. Operations that are anticipated, planned or scheduled may be changed, delayed, take longer than expected, fail to accomplish intended results, or not take place at all.

In carrying out exploration it is necessary to identify and evaluate risks and potential rewards. This identification and evaluation is informed by science but remains inherently uncertain. Subsurface features that appear to be possible traps may not exist at all, may be smaller than interpreted, may not contain hydrocarbons, may not contain the quantity or quality estimated, or may have reservoir conditions that do not allow adequate recovery to render a discovery commercial or profitable. Forward-looking statements about the size, potential or likelihood of discovery with respect to exploration targets are certainly not guarantees of discovery or of the actual presence or recoverability of hydrocarbons, or of the ability to produce in commercial or profitable quantities. Estimates of potential typically do not take into account all the risks of drilling and completion nor do they take into account the fact that hydrocarbon volumes are never 100% recoverable. Such estimates are part of the complex process of trying to measure and evaluate risk and reward in an uncertain industry.

Forward-looking statements are subject to risks and uncertainties outside FX Energy's control. Actual events or results may differ materially from the forward-looking statements. For a discussion of additional contingencies and uncertainties to which information respecting future events is subject, see FX Energy's SEC reports or visit FX Energy's website at
