Continued Increasing Demand for Oil Reinforces Topaz Plan

DENTON, TX--(Marketwire - December 13, 2010) - Topaz Resources, Inc. (OTCBB: TOPZ), an independent oil and gas company ("Topaz" or the "Company"), today announced that current and forecasted demand and prices of oil are providing significant reinforcement to the Topaz acquisition and development plan.

Resurgence in the global demand for oil has seen the price for oil not only remain over $80 per barrel, but climb to over $87. Global oil demand is strong; in fact, it has never been stronger. Macquarie Capital recently noted in November that oil demand during the third quarter of this year was up 3.7 percent, the fourth-straight quarter of growth and expects global oil demand to grow by 2.3 percent on a year-over-year basis in 2011.

Continued growth for demand of oil and higher oil prices also is supported by the International Energy Agency, whose long-term outlook predicts that global energy demand will grow by 36 percent between 2008 and 2035.

The continuing global growing demand for oil and high price of oil both have validated and reinforced the Topaz strategy to add and develop oil properties in the north and west Texas regions. Topaz recently has announced the consolidation into Topaz of its North Texas shallow oil project, which comprises 543.69 acres with a history of proved producing oil wells, located in Wichita County in North Texas and where it has commenced both multi well work over and drilling programs, and the consolidation of 750 net acres in the oil leg of the Barnett Shale in Montague County also in North Texas.
