Powder River Announces Third Quarter Earnings

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Nov. 16, 2007) - Powder River Basin Gas Corp. (OTCBB:PRVB), a revenue generating producer, acquirer and marketer of crude oil and natural gas properties, today announced third quarter earnings from oil and gas operations and its marketing program.

During the three months ended September 30th, 2007, the Company had net oil and gas sales revenue of $546,211. This represents an increase of $320,383 or approximately 142% compared to $225,828 for the three months ended September 30th, 2006.

Powder River had revenues from working interest sales of $2,181,971, a decrease of $1,790,174 or approximately 45% compared to $3,972,145 for the three months ended September 30th, 2006. This decrease in working interest sales is due primarily to the transition between the Brookshire project and the new Biamante project started during the third quarter. The Company anticipates revenues from working interest sales will increase during the next quarter.

Powder River also anticipates oil and gas sales in the balance fiscal 2007 will increase, but expects the sale of working interests will continue to produce the majority of the Company's revenue.

During the nine months ended September 30, 2007, Powder River had revenues from oil and gas sales of $1,913,044, an increase of $891,419 or approximately 87.3% compared to $1,021,625 for the nine months ended September 30th, 2006. Overall, working interest sales have increased when compared with the prior year period, with the exception of the three month period ended September 30th, 2007, which is explained above.

Total expenses increased to $1,915,012 from $742,067 in the prior year period, and total expenses related to the nine months increased to $6,035,437 from $2,550,401 in the prior year period. This increase is attributable to the increase in business activities, including administrative, lease operating, legal and professional service as well as increased costs related to the working interest marketing program. Management believes the increased expenses are necessary to support operations staff and services such that the Company can continue to acquire, develop, and operate additional oil and gas properties. Management plans to continue to aggressively pursue its strategic objectives in the balance of fiscal 2007.
