Magellan Energy Ltd. Announces Update on Oklahoma Projects

TORONTO--(Marketwire - July 18, 2007) - MAGELLAN ENERGY LTD. (PINKSHEETS: MGLG), a growing and experienced energy company focused on acquiring and partnering with existing producing junior properties in North America, announces its updates for the Company' current operations in Oklahoma.

The operations in Major County, Oklahoma on the "Martens 1-13" wells have been terminated and will no longer be an ongoing interest or project for Magellan Energy Ltd.

The Company will not continue operations in Major County, Oklahoma. The results from the "Martens 1-13" wells have proven to be less than adequate for the Company to justify further work on. Subsequently, all wells have been capped and the operating team has been scheduled to begin work on Magellan' next target location.

Field operators have identified areas of interest that can be reached in Canadian County, Oklahoma. Magellan Energy Ltd. is constantly and aggressively seeking other areas of interest to further its inventory of wells. The Canadian County has been looked at by Magellan Management as the next primary target for drilling operation.

"The operations in Major County have not yielded the results that we had anticipated. Therefore, operations on these particular wells have stopped and we will look to move forward to Canadian County. This is the nature of the business, we were under no illusions that this would be easy or that we would hit a grand slam right off the start. Of course we are disappointed at the results of the 'Martens 1-13' wells but we must persevere and not let any negative results hinder our progress and future projects. Our organization has been constantly researching various areas of interest that will leave Magellan Energy Ltd. with a vast inventory of wells and a continuous roll of projects," said Mr. Akrivos, CEO, Magellan Energy Ltd. "I do not see this as a setback but more of a bump on the road, this is the nature of this business, and the best that we can do as a Company is maintain our focus and rollout our business plan accordingly," added Mr. Akrivos.
