Diaz Reports Successful Completion at Hound Dog, Dickson #2 Well, Texas

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Nov. 15, 2006) - Diaz (TSX:DZR) reports that the Hound Dog Dickson #2 well, located in Lavaca County, Texas, was completed in the Heartbreak zone, last week, and is currently producing to sales at 2.8 MMcfd at 7,200 psi flowing pressure. Diaz has a 25.3 % working interest in the well.

This is the fourth zone to be completed in the well and a fifth zone, is yet to be completed, before all the zones are to be commingled.

This completion operation represents the recommencement of Diaz's active US development program, which was delayed for the past six months due to declining natural gas prices. Diaz is increasing its activities due to higher current natural gas prices, lower gas focused natural gas drilling in North America as well as a moderation in service costs.

The company anticipates further development wells on the Hound Dog and Allen Ranch prospects as well as drilling a high potential exploratory well on the Cheney prospect, planned for the first quarter of 2007.

Diaz is an oil and gas exploration and development company based in Calgary, Alberta, with land holdings and production in Canada and the United States. The Company's current focus is on deep gas exploration in Texas and on shallow gas developments in southern Alberta and natural gas and oil exploration in central and southern Alberta.
