FuelNation Signs Letter of Intent to Acquire Controlling Interest of Niko-Oil Ltd. in the Russian Federation

FuelNation Shareholder Update Letter

DAVIE, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 30, 2006 -- We are pleased to confirm that we have signed a letter of intent to acquire controlling interest of Niko-Oil Ltd. located in the Russian Federation. The signed letter of intent requires FuelNation (OTC: FLNA) to use up to $50 million dollars of its credit facility to acquire Russian Crude Oil from Surgutneftegas and refine into a finished product for export.

Chris R. Salmonson, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of FuelNation Inc., said, "We intend to aggressively pursue our acquisition of controlling interest before April 15th, 2006, and this will fit perfectly into our expansion model. The opportunity is going to work well for both companies because we have just recently signed a credit facility for $300 million dollars to be secured by crude oil and petroleum products, and the controlling acquisition of Niko-Oil Ltd. gives us the management and contracts we have desired in the Russian Federation."

Our office in Moscow, Russia has informed us of the final details of our Russian Export Blend Crude Oil (REBCO) contracts and diesel supply from the Russian Federation. We anticipate favorable results from these negotiations and will be able to add another solid source of supply to our growth.

With both management and the required financing capability in place, the Company is actively seeking new alliances through FuelNation Government Services in oil producing countries to participate in joint ventures. Currently we have identified several major assets and opportunities for participation and are conducting extensive due-diligence to establish additional projects in the Caribbean, Africa and the Middle East.

"The opportunities keep presenting themselves and we have positioned FuelNation for the growth by establishing key relationships with governments and first class management in the energy industry. This is only just the beginning of our business model being placed in action to add substantial shareholder value," said Shaikh Isa Mohammed Isa Alkhalifa, Director of FuelNation Inc.
