PrimeGen Announces Acquisition of Kansas Petroleum Database

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- October 31, 2006 -- PrimeGen Energy Corporation (OTCBB: PGNE) ("PrimeGen" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has executed an agreement with a private company to acquire an interest in a unique and very prospective Kansas oil exploration project at a cost of $675,000. The Company has acquired a 90% participation right to plays resulting from the analysis of a proprietary database encompassing the geological analysis of approximately one million acres located in central Kansas, covering parts of Ellsworth, Salina, McPherson, Reno, Harvey, Kingman, and Sedgwick counties. The detailed analysis of the data-base will be used to generate oil and gas drilling opportunities which may have been overlooked by traditional exploration methods.

The project is the result of work performed by experts in petroleum geology in the Central Kansas Platform by making use of several distinct technologies, known collectively as the "RAM" process -- an innovative geophysical methodology used to highlight oil and gas deposits. Unlike 2-D and 3-D seismic methods, which gather information based upon artificially induced sonic responses recorded at the surface, RAM technology identifies "unique bright spots" by using proprietary computer software to process magnetic field data.

Data is collected by a low-flying aircraft equipped with specialized equipment and then analyzed by RAM software. The "bright spot" anomalies are then correlated with other apparent near-surface alterations caused by the slow geochemical processes generally occurring at or near oil and gas deposits. The resulting anomalies may, in some cases, then be confirmed using more traditional 2-D or 3-D seismic methods.

Several identified RAM anomalies interpreted within the survey area are believed to have hydrocarbon potential over multi-sections of lands that have not previously been tested by drilling. Most nearby production within this region of the Central Kansas Platform produces from Mississippian age and older limestone rocks above the Arbuckle dolomite formation. Some of these accumulations of hydrocarbons are trapped in irregular rock formations which are not easily identified by traditional seismic. The magnetic survey and interpretation of the region appears to be of excellent quality. PrimeGen and its partners are presently acquiring, analyzing and sharing data in order to define the highest priority targets. Data is also being traded with prospect owners in order to earn various working interests in lands which meet acceptable development criteria. The Company and its partners plan to drill test the most promising prospects.
