BELLINGHAM, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 13, 2006 -- Digital Ecosystems Corp. ("Digital") (OTC BB: DGEO) is pleased to announce today that it has entered into a definitive agreement with GSL Energy Corporation ("GSL"), a Maryland corporation, for the purpose of acquiring at least 80% of the issued and outstanding shares of GSL. Pursuant to the terms of the agreement and subject to closing, 100,000,000 shares of GSL's issued and outstanding common stock held by certain of GSL's stockholders will be converted on a one for one basis into shares of Digital's common stock (the "Exchange"), and Digital will assume the obligations of GSL to issue additional shares of the common stock of GSL pursuant to options issued under GSL's stock option plan, certain agreements entered into by GSL, and GSL's convertible debentures and convertible notes outstanding.

GSL presently has 103,241,000 shares of its common stock issued and outstanding, and has options, convertible debentures and convertible notes outstanding to acquire additional shares of the common stock of GSL. Upon closing of the Exchange, Digital will own and operate the assets of GSL and change its business to that of GSL. Closing of the Exchange is subject to a number of conditions, including the following: (i) satisfactory completion of due diligence by both parties; and (ii) delivery of financial statements of GSL required under securities laws.

Digital President G. Leigh Lyons stated, "We are excited by the potential of the GSL assets and properties and are anxious to begin development activities on these new assets. In particular, we look forward to drilling and developing the GSL acreage in the Piceance Basin -- in my opinion, one of the more exciting onshore plays in North America at the moment. With the continued cooperation and effort of both management teams we anticipate and look forward to the closing of this transaction."
