Not for distribution to United States newswire services or for dissemination in the United States.

Candax Energy Inc. (TSX:CAX) today reported a second quarter loss of Cdn$186 thousand ($0.000 per common share) compared to a loss of Cdn$9 thousand ($0.089 per common share) in the second quarter of 2004. The net loss for the first six months of 2005 was Cdn$706 thousand ($0.000 per common share) which compares to a loss of Cdn$9 thousand ($0.089 per common share) for the same period in 2004.

The second quarter marked the first period that Candax reported the results of operations from its Tunisian assets. On April 26, 2005, Candax completed the purchase of its Tunisian operations for total proceeds of $43.7 million including working capital adjustments from Centurion Energy International Inc. These assets have been producing approximately 1,200 bopd of oil and 4.8 MMscf per day of natural gas. The effective date of the transaction was January 1, 2005 and all economic benefits have accrued to Candax from that date. However, title to the assets did not pass to the Company until April 26, 2005, and all revenues and costs are treated as an adjustment to the purchase price. These quarterly results include the results of the acquired Tunisian operations for May and June 2005. Production in the quarter, while not all included in the operating results of Candax, met target expectations.
