True North Energy Announces Closing of Texas Acquisition

HOUSTON, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Sept. 26, 2007) - True North Energy Corporation (OTCBB:TNEN), an independent oil and gas exploration company, is pleased to announce that it has closed the acquisition of Prime Natural Resources Inc., ("Prime"), interests in the Devon Fee Gas Unit and the O'Leary Gas Unit No. 1 in Brazoria County, Texas.

On August 31, 2007 our newly formed, wholly owned subsidiary, ICF Energy Corporation ("ICF") entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Prime whereby ICF agreed to acquire certain oil and gas properties and related assets of Prime (collectively the "Assets") located in Brazoria County, Texas for $3,500,000. The Assets include the Devon Fee Gas Unit and the O'Leary Unit No. 1 and cover an aggregate of approximately 1150 acres. The Assets include 2 producing wells with an estimated 2 BCF of recoverable gas reserves and 3 additional exploration prospects in the Old Ocean Unit in Brazoria County, Texas. The properties are currently producing approximately 1 million standard cubic feet per day of gas and 10 barrels of oil per day, net to the Asset owner. Net cash flow from the assets is approximately $200,000 per month after taxes, royalties and operating expenses. The transaction was closed on September 19, 2007. The financing was provided by Valens U.S. SPV I, LLC and Valens Offshore SPV II, Corp. The details of the closing of the Prime Assets acquisition and the related financing are set forth in our Current Report on Form 8K dated September 18, 2007. ICF Energy will be the operator of the Devon Fee #1 Well.

"We are very pleased with this acquisition and we want to thank all our advisors, Valens funds and Prime for their tremendous work and effort to complete this transaction. We look at this transaction as a first of several that will add proven producing assets, with low risk exploitation potential, to the foundation part of our portfolio. These assets will complement our exploratory efforts in Alaska and Colorado," said John Folnovic, True North Energy President and CEO.
