Milagro Energy Inc. Provides Operational and Financial Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 24, 2007) -


Milagro Energy Inc. (TSX:MIG) ("Milagro" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that the Company and its working interest partners have drilled and cased their first step out well at Rigel East, B.C. The well is currently being completed and production tested for a dual zone gas well. Milagro has a 37.5 percent working interest and four follow-up locations.

The Company has also acquired the necessary land governmental approvals for the Swanhills Reef test in the Judy Creek Beaver Hill Lake "A" Pool and the first horizontal Pekisko gas and oil location also at Judy Creek. Drilling operations are expected to commence after break-up at Judy Creek and following the successful closing of the Company's previously announced equity financing and debt restructuring. Milagro now anticipates that the closing of the current public offering and the completion of the refinancing of its existing bridge credit facility will occur on or before May 25, 2007 which is now the maturity date of the existing credit facility and the expiry date of the Company's restructuring agreement with Brookfield Bridge Lending Fund Inc.

Milagro is an exploration and production company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas reserves in western Canada.
