(TSX VENTURE:ADB) is pleased to announce results from operations for its most recently completed quarter ending January 31, 2007.

"The results from this quarter demonstrate that the programs Management has instituted regarding development and well optimization are showing a very positive trend", commented Steve Tedesco, President and CEO. "Although we are not at the level of total production we thought we would be entering 2007, due to delays in getting new wells online, the level of production coming from wells currently connected to the pipeline is in line with our projections. Our near term challenge is to get the remaining wells drilled from our 2006 Development Program on line as quickly as possible. With the recent increases in production, we are now approaching a level of revenue that will cover our LOE, G&A and interest expense".
