PetroSun Consolidates Oilfield Services

SCOTTSDALE, AZ--(Marketwire - June 9, 2008) - PetroSun, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: PSUD) announced today that the Company has formed PetroSun Oilfield, Incorporated as a wholly owned subsidiary to consolidate all of its oilfield service and supply operations. PetroSun Oilfield will be headquartered in Shreveport, Louisiana.

The initial operations of this newly formed subsidiary will focus on oilfield tubulars, supplying seamless tubing and casing to company projects and the Ark-La-Tex market. The recent Haynesville Shale activity in northwest Louisiana has increased demand for all oilfield-related goods and services. PetroSun Oilfield will be centrally located with yards in Oil City and a soon-to-be-announced location south of Shreveport.

Gordon LeBlanc, Jr., CEO of PetroSun, Inc., commented, "My recent business trip to China resulted in agreements to procure large quantities of top-quality seamless tubing and casing. We are in the process of placing an initial purchase order for 150,000 feet of pipe for delivery into Houston."
