Cygam Energy Inc. Announces Commencement of Drilling at Sud Remada in Tunisia

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 28, 2008) - Cygam Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:CYG) ("Cygam" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the commencement of drilling of the TT-2 exploratory well on the Sud Remada permit operated by Storm Ventures International Inc.

The TT-2 well is being drilled on a large Ordovician structure, with indicated areal extent of approximately 70 square kilometres, which was mapped on the basis of extensive older vintage seismic coverage and new 2-D seismic data acquired in mid 2007. The well will be drilled approximately one kilometre from an older well (TT-1), drilled in 1959, which recovered light oil and gas on limited tests. New 2D seismic data indicates that the TT-2 location should encounter the target Ordovician Bir Ben Tartar sandstones 15 to 20 metres higher than in the TT-1 well. It is expected that drilling and testing operations in this 1,600 metre well will last approximately 30 days.

The Sud Remada permit covers an area of 1,173,215 acres and has exploratory potential in the Ordovician, Silurian Acacus and Triassic Ras Hamia formations. All three zones have commercial production in adjoining blocks in Tunisia and Libya. The 2D seismic program conducted over the Block during 2007 has also delineated additional prospective structures which are under review for future drilling. The Corporation has a 14% working interest in the TT-2 well and the Sud Remada permit.

Cygam is a Calgary based exploration company with producing oil and gas properties in Canada and extensive international exploration concessions. The main focus of the Corporation is the acquisition, exploration and development of international oil and gas permits, primarily in Italy, Tunisia and the Mediterranean basin. Cygam currently holds various interests in five exploratory concessions in Italy and four exploratory concessions in Tunisia encompassing approximately 4 million gross acres (approximately 2.7 million net acres).

There is no certainty that the Sud Remada drilling program will be carried out when scheduled. The existence of discoveries in structures and formations in the regions where Cygam is drilling, and the previous testing of oil and gas flows in the same structure, does not necessarily assure that the company will be successful with its drilling program.
