Nevarro is please to also announce its 2005 drilling program.

The Company has budgeted for a capital spending program of approximately
$6,500,000 for 2005, and plans to participate in the drilling of
approximately 44 wells.

In Saskatchewan, Nevarro plans to drill 42 (20.53 net) wells targeting
natural gas and heavy oil in its west central Saskatchewan focus area.
The remaining 2 (0.54 net) wells will be drilled in Alberta.

Nevarro recently successfully completed and placed on production one
(0.57 net) colony natural gas well. Nevarro anticipates adding an
additional 40 boe/d from this well.

Based upon rig availability and the timing and the length of spring
break up, the Company plans to drill 2.22 net (5 gross) wells during the
month of March 2005. These wells are to be drilled in Nevarro's west
central Saskatchewan focus area.

Based on field estimates, Nevarro is currently producing approximately
950 boe/d. The Company anticipates that the first quarter 2005 drilling
program, if successful, would add approximately 150 (net) boe/d to the
Company's production.

Nevarro currently has 9,107,891 shares outstanding.
