Energy Exploration International Commences Drill Site Preparation

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 13, 2006 -- Energy Exploration International's operator for the Poteet Reef Prospect, PDG Energy Inc. (Texas), has commenced construction on the Sanchez-Lawson Joint Venture. Having already surveyed the sites to determine the specific well locations for the Sanchez #1, the Lawson #1 and the Lawson #2 wells, PDG Energy is now clearing the land, constructing roads and digging the drill pits at the specified locations. All three drill sites proposed under the Sanchez-Lawson Joint Venture are now filed on public record with the Atascosa County Texas Courthouse. As required by U.S. federal and state law, all relevant permits must be acquired before the commencement of drilling. In compliance with Texas' state regulations, all of EEI's drilling operations are to be regulated by the Railroad Commission of Texas (RRC). EEI is slated to commence drilling in August 2006. A drill depth of 3900 - 4240 feet has been scheduled to take 8-12 days per well.

According to Curtis Best, President of Energy Exploration International, Inc., "Upon successful drilling and completion of the first three wells, EEI plans to drill additional wells on the Poteet Reef Prospect." This is in compliance with the 40-acre spacing between wells as stipulated by the rules and regulations of the Railroad Commission of Texas. Each additional well will allow EEI to further develop its drilling and exploration program.
