PrimeGen and MB Gas Report on Gas Well Testing at Manyberries, Alberta

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- March 14, 2007 -- PrimeGen Energy Corporation (OTCBB: PGNE) today wishes to announce the completion and testing results from three (3) Sawtooth formation gas wells at the MB Gas Project, located in the Manyberries area of Alberta, Canada. PrimeGen and MB Gas Inc. are currently working to tie-in three natural gas wells owned and operated by Provident Energy Trust.

The 11-17 gas well was flow tested at rates of 600 Mcf per day with no water in well tests conducted between October 27 and November 24, 2006. Southridge Petroleum Consulting Ltd. of Calgary has estimated the potential for 2.4 Bcf gas at this location. The 11-17 wellhead is less than 1.5 miles from a pipeline in which MB Gas owns a majority interest in.

The second well, the 6-7, is approximately 1.7 miles from the 11-17 well and was tested at flow rates that were held back to 300 Mcf per day to prevent damage to the well. A remedial cement squeeze is planned for the well and when tied-in to pipeline, an additional 1.7 Bcf has been estimated for this location.

The last Provident well is located 6 miles to the southeast of the 6-7 and requires re-completion and testing. Based on the observed pay in the well log, it has been estimated by Southridge Petroleum to have the potential to produce gas at rates between 700 and 2,000 Mcf per day. The well may contain 3.0 Bcf. Analogous wells in the area producing from Sawtooth formation reservoirs commonly produce somewhere between 1,000 and 2,000 Mcf.

The three wells are projected, when tied-in to pipeline, to produce gas at rates of between 1,300 and 3,000 Mcf per day and may have a combined potential of 7.1 Bcf.

This program is part of the 2007 development and operations plan to tie-in and produce natural gas from three Provident Energy wells and conduct well surveys to determine the geological potential of up to twenty (20) Sawtooth Formation locations in the immediate vicinity of the pipeline. MB Gas Inc. plans to tie-in five (5) currently shut-in or abandoned gas wells in the 2007 calendar year with the aim of producing in the 800 BOEPD range. PrimeGen and its partner, MB Gas Inc. (a private Alberta oil and gas exploration company), are focused on the exploitation of targeted, low risk natural gas development opportunities in southeastern Alberta.
