Exceed Energy Drills and Cases Oilwell at Normandville

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 14, 2006) - Exceed Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EX.A) (TSX VENTURE:EX.B) ("Exceed" or the "Company") has completed drilling a 2390 meter oil test at 7-13-78-21W5M in Normandville, Alberta. The Company holds a fifty percent (50%) working interest in the well and mineral rights. Exceed and its partner have cased the well. Completion operations in the Beaverhill Lake are expected to commence in late December and the well could be on production in January 2007.

The 7-13 well is the first well in a projected three well drilling program in the area. Exceed owns 10.25 gross sections of land at interests varying from 25 to 50 percent. The Company has 6 square kilometers of 3D seismic over its acreage and is evaluating two additional oil target locations.

A drilling proposal to test the Montney on the Normandville acreage has been received from a working interest partner and is being studied.

Forward Looking Statement

This press release contains forward-looking statements including expectations of future production, cash flow and earnings. These statements are based on current expectations that involve a number of risks and uncertainties, which could cause actual results to differ from those anticipated. These risks include, but are not limited to: the risks associated with the oil and gas industry (e.g. operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projects relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price, price and exchange rate fluctuations and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. The Company has also used certain measures of financial reporting that are commonly used as benchmarks within the oil and natural gas production industry. The measures discussed are widely accepted measures of performance and value within the industry, and are used by analysts and investors to compare and evaluate oil and natural gas exploration and producing entities. Most notably, these measures include operating netback and cash flows from operations. Operating netback is a benchmark used in the crude oil and natural gas industry to measure the contribution of oil and natural gas sales subsequent to the deduction of royalties and operating costs. Cash flow from operations is before changes in non-cash working capital and site restoration expenditures, and is used to analyze operations, performance and liquidity. These measures are not defined under GAAP and should not be considered in isolation or as an alternative to conventional GAAP measures. These measures and their underlying calculations are not necessarily comparable to a similarly titled measure of another entity. When these measures are used, they are defined as "non GAAP" and should be given careful consideration by the reader. The term barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio for natural gas of 6:1 has been used by the Company, which is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value of equivalency at the wellhead. All BOE conversions in this report are derived by converting natural gas to crude oil in the ratio of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel of crude oil. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect Exceed's operations or financial results are included in Exceed's reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities that may be accessed at www.sedar.com or through the Company's website, www.exceedenergy.com.

The TSX Venture Exchange has not reviewed and does not accept responsibility for the adequacy or accuracy of this release.
