Daytona Energy Corporation: Pandura Project-Drilling Contract

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Aug. 14, 2007) - Daytona Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:DTE) today announced that the Company's United States subsidiary Daytona Energy (U.S.A.) LLC, has signed a drilling contract with Pioneer Drilling Co. (PDC-Amex) for the Kathleen Marie #2 well on the Pandura Prospect in Webb Co., Texas. This well will be drilled to 8,500 feet to test prospective Wilcox age sands and is expected to spud late August 2007.

According to Daytona's Chief Executive Officer, Jim Breimayer, "We are pleased to be working with a reputable drilling contractor; such as, Pioneer Drilling who will drill the well through open hole logging on turnkey contract basis. This approach reduces the mechanical drilling risk to Daytona and its partners, and at the same time, is significantly less expensive than our estimated costs to drill on day rate basis at the beginning of 2007. We look forward to spudding the Kathleen Marie #2 this month and giving Daytona and its partners the excellent reserve exposure this prospect represents."

Daytona Energy will have approximately 45% working interest in the well with its partners owning the remaining interest.

Daytona is an oil and gas exploration/development company, focused on gas exploration in Alberta, Canada and the Gulf Coast region of the United States.
