Brighton Acquires Texas Barnett Shale Lease Interest

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 10, 2007 -- National Healthcare Technology Inc. (OTCBB: NHCT), d/b/a Brighton Oil, announced today that it has acquired a 12.5% working interest in 4 producing gas leases located in Wise County, Texas. The lease covers roughly 231 acres in the extremely prolific area known as the Barnett Shale, which is one of the most active areas in the United States for natural gas. The wells are drilled at a depth of 8,000 feet, and total production for the 4 wells has been over 61,000 mcf.

Within the next several weeks, Brighton expects to begin the process of enhancing production and increasing gas volume by both going up hole to larger formations and by performing fracs on additional gas producing zones. It is expected that upon completion of this process that production will triple over the next several months. Sam Plunkett, President of Brighton Oil, stated, "This acquisition allows us to enter the complex and highly productive Barnett Shale formation with little acquisition risk and to be able to increase production with very cost effective means and technology." With reserves of at least 2 trillion cubic feet of natural gas, the Barnett Shale proves itself to be commercially viable resource for Brighton Oil.
