Jericho Energy Company, Inc. Announces Completion of Merger

TAMPA, FL--(Marketwire - May 12, 2008) - Jericho Energy Company, formerly known as Pine Springs Energy, announces completion of its Merger with Centire International, Inc, a Nevada publicly traded corporation (PINKSHEETS: CNRN). The company has completed its Florida State Redomiciliation Filings, which were approved on April 17th, 2008. Jericho commenced its domestic petroleum and natural gas exploration and operations activities primarily in the State of Utah, in the third quarter of 2006, engaging outside strategic partners with decades long experience. Centire's management had begun exploration into the domestic U.S. energy industry early in 2007, and after reviewing the progress Jericho had been making, decided that the merger was a positive fit and direction for its shareholders. The company is now in the process of applying for a new CUSIP number and symbol.

"We are actively beginning our information and education dissemination campaign for release in the coming weeks that will offer specifics on the company's strategy to tap into the vast petroleum and natural gas reserves located in the central Utah hingeplay," states Jericho's Chief Operating Officer and President, Russell Hilbourn. He adds, "Domestic energy production is the most salient issue facing the nation today, and we plan to play our part in increasing domestic production and thereby help alleviate some of the petroleum import burden."
