CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 6, 2008) - Milagro Energy Inc. (TSX:MIG) ("Milagro") announced today that all conditions of the offer (the "Offer") dated March 28, 2008 by Second Wave Petroleum Ltd. ("Second Wave") and its wholly-owned subsidiary Second Wave Holdings Ltd. ("Holdings") to acquire all of the issued and outstanding common shares of Milagro (the "Milagro Shares") have been satisfied. An aggregate of 115,351,528 Milagro Shares, which represents approximately 68.81% of the issued and outstanding Milagro Shares on a fully-diluted basis, were tendered by the Offer deadline.

Second Wave and Holdings will proceed with the Offer and take-up and pay for the Milagro Shares deposited pursuant to the Offer on the basis of one unit of Second Wave (a "Unit") for every Milagro Share on Thursday, May 8, 2008 with closing expected to occur on the same date. Each Unit is comprised of 0.0298 of a Class A Share of Second Wave and 0.0298 of a share purchase warrant of Second Wave.

Second Wave has also extended the Offer until 4:30 p.m. (Calgary time) on May 23, 2008. Milagro shareholders are encouraged to tender their Milagro Shares to the extended Offer, as the Milagro Shares are expected to be delisted from the Toronto Stock Exchange after May 31, 2008. If less than an aggregate of 90% of the Milagro Shares have been deposited to the Offer prior to the extended expiry time, Second Wave may further extend the Offer or implement other procedures to complete its acquisition of all of the Milagro Shares.

BOEs (barrels of oil equivalent) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf of natural gas to 1 barrel of oil is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
