"In less than one year, we have gone from no revenue to reporting our first cash-flow positive quarter," said Paul Branagan, Petrol's Chief Executive Officer. "We have achieved this by acquiring a combination of what we believe to be low-risk, proven production and high-impact properties. We believe our portfolio of Coal Bed Methane assets ideally positions us to continue to increase production and profits throughout the balance of the year. We expect through strong energy prices and improved operating efficiencies that Petrol is poised to deliver solid results to investors."

Petrol Oil and Gas' focus as they move forward, explained Mr. Branagan, will be on the growth and development of their existing properties to increase production and revenues as the Company works towards creating additional value for their shareholders. Strategic acquisitions will also be explored as operations expand.
