Lexaria Corporation -- Oil Field Development Wells

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwire - October 8, 2007) - Lexaria Corp. (OTCBB: LXRA) (the "Company" or "Lexaria") -- Lexaria announces that it has given approval to drill two development wells adjacent to the PP F-12 discovery well. Permits have been acquired, site work is complete, mobilization is advanced, and the first of these wells, the PP F-12 #3, will commence drilling within the next two days. Immediately after drilling the PP F-12 #3, the rig will move to the PP F-12 #2. Both wells are expected to be drilled and completed before the end of October.

These two development wells will contribute to the understanding of this oil field as it relates to more complete development in 2008. Production and other data will be gathered and analyzed. Possible development plans for the field could also include horizontal drilling, which can result in production increases of 200% or more as compared to vertical wells in similar formations.

Additionaly, Lexaria is pleased to announce that the original discovery well, PP F-12, began production at approx. 7AM local time, on October 2. Using conservative well management techniques, we began production with an 11/64 choke, which is flowing 95 BOD, at 250 lbs. pressure. There has been no gas and no water production.

Lexaria Corp. holds a gross 30% working interest in the PP F-12 discovery well and all development wells drilled on its 160-acre lease. Lexaria also holds a gross 50% working interest in future wells in the Palmetto Point area, which surrounds on all sides the PP F-12 discovery well lease. All 32,000 acres of the Palmetto Point area have been shot with 3D seismic.
