President of Siberian Energy Group, Inc. to Speak at the Investment Symposium in Washington, D.C.

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - October 18, 2007) - Siberian Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: SIBN) (SEG), a U.S.-based publicly traded oil and gas exploration company with 100% of its assets located in West Siberia, Russia, announces that on October 19, 2007, Helen Teplitskaia, President of SEG, who also serves as President of the American-Russian Chamber of Commerce & Industry and Adjunct Professor at Northwestern University Kellogg School of Management, will speak at the 11th Annual Russian Investment Symposium organized by the International Economic Alliance (IEA) in partnership with the International Finance Corporation (IFC) -- member of the World Bank Group. To coincide with the IMF-World Bank Annual Meetings, this year's Symposium will be held in Washington, D.C.

"The Russian Investment Symposium brings together key international decision makers in business, finance and policy with the leading academics. This is a unique forum to discuss opportunities and challenges, as well as devise strategies for investment and trade with one of the most profitable emerging markets -- Russia," said Helen Teplitskaia.

Teplitskaia, a leading expert on Russian/Eurasian affairs, will address the major theme of the Symposium "What Does Russia Want?" focusing on globalization of Russian companies and what will take "Global Russia" to become a reality. "As wealth in the Russian economy continues to grow, so do the opportunities for Russian companies to increase investments in Europe and North America," said Teplitskaia. "Many of these companies have made remarkable progress in moving from the Soviet administration to Western style management. However, due to perception issues, resistance to Russia's penetration in these markets is often strong. To eliminate Cold War biases, Russian companies need to intensify their lobbying and PR activities abroad, spotlighting their adoption of international standards and track record of success with international acquisitions."
