Kodiak Energy, Inc.-New Mexico Operations Update-Sofia Land Position Increased 50% With Closing of Mineral Lease Purchase

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 13, 2008) - Kodiak Energy, Inc. (TSX VENTURE:KDK) (OTCBB:KDKN) ("Kodiak" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce the closing of additional mineral rights purchases. The Sofia exploration program land position was increased by 50% with the acquisition of an additional 15,600 acres net, or approximately 25,000 acres gross, for a net leased 79,000 acres in the area.

The first laboratory gas tests from the first drilled well has shown 99.6% quality CO2. Additional tests are still in the laboratory with results expected over next several weeks.

CO2 is used for enhanced oil recovery (EOR) projects in mature fields. These are projects where additional reserves can be recovered or production can be prolonged after initial recovery methods have been used. In many situations, production can be "revived" or enhanced through the injection of CO2 into the reservoir and essentially forcing the oil to the surface through the well bore. EOR can increase production efficiency and can prolong the economic life of older fields by as much as 30 years.

To date, three wells have been drilled and cased. A 38 mile seismic program was completed on budget and the data processed. The data was of excellent quality and is currently being reviewed to support future drilling and development plans.
