PrimeGen Chairman Comments on Operations

DALLAS, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 4, 2007 -- PrimeGen Energy Corporation (OTCBB: PGNE) ("PrimeGen" or the "Company") today released the comments of Chairman William S. Marshall on the progress of the Company.

"At this stage in the Company's history, I believe that we deserve high marks for our accomplishments. We have acquired attractive core assets and have combined good industry relationships with fiscal responsibility and sound management. The result is a solid platform for expansion and profitability. PrimeGen has acquired low risk assets in well-explored areas, as well as interests in newly discovered or emerging plays where the development risk has been significantly reduced by the experience of our partners."

"Our present operations in Fayetteville are illustrative of our risk reduction strategy. Fayetteville is an emerging gas play in which we have acquired a 10% working interest in approximately 40,000 acres in Van Buren, Stone and Cleburne Counties, Arkansas. The Fayetteville shale is known to contain an unconventional gas reservoir ranging in thickness from 50 to 550 feet at depths of from 1,500 to 6,500 feet. We are participating with industry majors like Chesapeake and Southwestern and are extremely confident of success."

"We are continuing to review and evaluate the various financing opportunities that have been presented to us in order to expand more quickly, although we intend to establish early cash flow in order to allow some debt financing, a less dilutive option. Nonetheless, we continue to aggressively examine multiple acquisition opportunities that fit our model."

"Although we would like to quickly reach the point where we are able to bring in-house many of the functions that we are currently contracting out, at this stage I believe it is better for us to maintain the status quo by concentrating on our core management strengths. Solid projects and realistic revenue expectations, coupled with low overhead, will enable us to realize our near term objective of becoming a mid-size producer of natural gas and oil in North America."
