PHOENIX, AZ--(Marketwire - August 16, 2007) - PetroSun, Incorporated (PINKSHEETS: PSUD) announced today that the Spencer Harris 7000 drilling rig recently surveyed by ModuSpec USA will drill the Muslow #2 prior to being shipped to the Canning Basin of Western Australia. PetroSun has engaged the Australian drilling superintendent for the firm's Lanagan A well to be present during the drilling of the Muslow #2. This will allow the Australian drilling crew to become familiar with the Spencer Harris 7000 during actual operations prior to drilling the Lanagan A.

The Muslow #2 is a 5,000 foot development well located on the 2,961 acre Muslow lease in the Caddo Pine Island Field of Caddo Parish, Louisiana.
