Opal Energy Announces Sale of Kane Brandon #1 Well

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 14, 2009) -


Opal Energy Corp. (the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:OPA) announces the sale of its interest in the K-2 Prospect in Colorado County, Texas which includes the Kane Brandon #1 well for US$250,000.

The Company assumed a 100 percent working interest in the Kane Bandon #1 well from its original joint operating partners in August of 2007, after the well had been drilled to approximately 18,460 ft. and logged. Opal ran 5 inch casing to total depth in the well, however, completion operations were never commenced on this well due to lack of funding. With the close of this transaction, the Company has no remaining interest in the K-2 prospect.

The Company is seeking a buyer for its interest in the SW Victoria 3-D Seismic Survey, which has yielded several prospect leads. It also continues efforts to sell its interests in a portfolio of ultra-deep Wilcox trend prospects, located primarily in Kenedy County.

While pursuing plans to raise capital through the sale of assets, the Company has reduced overhead significantly, continuing a process it began last fall.

President and CEO Michael Curtis commented, "We remain faced with the twin challenges of relatively low commodity prices and market conditions that are unfavorable to securing financing. Given those circumstances, we have adopted a strategy we feel will enable Opal Energy to continue operating and ultimately to pursue new oil and gas investment opportunities."
