Ethanoil Releases Geological Report

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - September 5, 2007) - Ethanoil and Gas Corporation (PINKSHEETS: EGCP) today released a Technical Review of its Torch Lake Natural Gas Exploration Property in Central Saskatchewan. The review was prepared by the independent petroleum consulting firm, Sproule Associates Limited of Calgary, Alberta and conforms to the regulatory requirements of Canada's National Instrument 51-101, Standards of Disclosure for Oil and Gas Activities. The review, "Torch Lake Technical Review.pdf," can be found at

As announced on August 29, 2007, Ethanoil and Gas has acquired the exploration rights to the Torch Lake property through the acquisition of 1259529 Alberta Limited, which owns a 100% working interest in the petroleum and natural gas rights associated with 115,272 acres in the Torch Lake area of the Province of Saskatchewan, Canada. The Torch Lake Property is a shallow gas prospect situated over the northern margins of an ancient inland seaway, known as the Williston Basin, located under the Great Plains.

The company plans to explore and assess shallow siltstone and shale formations within the Colorado Group, the Montana Group and the overlying Laurentide Drift. Drilling for shallow gas can be far cheaper than conventional drilling. The depths are 300 to 600 meters through sandstones and shales. Lighter drilling equipment can be used and the holes can be drilled in one or two days. Although the wells are generally low flow producers, they tend to produce for long periods, decades in many cases. In addition, several wells per section of land can be drilled and put into production. With several wells per section, a project with a large land base can be very productive and economical.
