OMDA Oil and Gas, Inc. Negotiates to Sell Panola County Lease

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 16, 2006 -- OMDA Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTC: OMOG) is pleased to announce that it is negotiating with a fully reporting bulletin board company to acquire OMDA's Panola County Lease. OMDA currently owns a 100% working interest in this 1,116-acre horizontal play in Panola County, TX. This was one of OMDA's first lease purchases under new management, and it was acquired when oil and gas prices were significantly lower.

The terms of this proposed agreement may include a stock payment to OMDA, as well as a cash dividend distributed directly to the shareholders of record of OMDA Oil and Gas, Inc. Further details will be released over the next few weeks as the terms are finalized.

Adam Barnett, Chairman, stated, "OMDA Oil and Gas, Inc. looks forward to completing this transaction. I have stated many times that our company was extremely fortunate to acquire most of our assets prior to oil and gas prices making their big moves upward. We were able to purchase the Panola lease for $100,000, and we feel that this property is worth much more than that amount now based on current market valuation. Through these types of acquisitions and agreements, the company and our shareholders will reap the benefits of our asset appreciation."
