Eaglewood Energy Inc.: Talisman Energy and Mitsubishi Announce Strategic Joint Venture in Papua New Guinea

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Feb. 23, 2012) - Eaglewood Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EWD).

Talisman Energy Inc ("Talisman") has announced a joint venture with Mitsubishi Corporation ("Mitsubishi") whereby Mitsubishi has acquired an average 20% interest in nine of Talisman's licenses in the Forelands of PNG. A copy of Talisman's press release dated February 22, 2012 with respect to its announcement is available under Talisman's profile at www.sedar.com.

The nine licenses involved in the Talisman-Mitsubishi transaction include PRL 28, in which Eaglewood owns a 40% participating interest and is currently operator. As indicated in the map below, the nine licenses completely surround Eaglewood's PPL 259 license.

CEO Brad Hurtubise commented ""this transaction is very positive for Eaglewood and all the Forelands players, as it introduces a large and experienced LNG player into the region which should result in a more likely and more rapid monetisation of the natural gas reserves in the Forelands of PNG."
