CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - March 30, 2007) - Questerre Energy Corporation ("Questerre" or the "Company") (TSX:QEC)(OSLO:QEC) announced today its financial and operating results for 2006.


- Talisman, our partner, drilled a discovery well in the St. Lawrence Lowlands, Quebec

- Appraisal drilling commenced for the Mattson/Besa River horizon at the Beaver River Field

- Completed development drilling of gas pool in Vulcan

- Established Westlock as a new core area

- Exited 2006 with production over 1,600 boe/d and cash flow of $5.08 million for the year

- Increased proved and probable reserves to 2.25 mmboe in 2006 from 0.9 mmboe in 2005

Michael Binnion, President and Chief Executive Officer, commented, "Our business plan to develop high-impact projects with partners and diversify risk through a conventional asset portfolio continued to gain traction. Our exploration ideas were tested with promising results. In Quebec, Talisman drilled Gentilly #1 that discovered natural gas in the Trenton Black-River formation. Evaluation of the Mattson/Besa River horizon at the Beaver River Field proceeded with the drilling of the A-7 well by our partner, Transeuro. The assets in Southern and Central Alberta grew through delineation drilling of our gas pool in Vulcan and the development of a new core area in Westlock. Growth in these assets is reflected in our financial and operating results. Production during the year averaged 778 boe/d with over 75% of this production from Alberta. The increased production saw Questerre generate over $5 million in cash flow from operations during the year."

For the year ended December 31, 2006, the Company reported cash flow from operations of $5.08 million as compared to $0.004 million for the same period in 2005. As at December 31, 2006, the Company reported a working capital surplus of $22.70 million as compared to a surplus of $9.80 million as at December 31, 2005.

This news release contains forward-looking information. Implicit in this information are assumptions regarding commodity pricing, production, royalties and expenses, that, although considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. These forward-looking statements are based on certain assumptions that involve a number of risks and uncertainties and are not guarantees of future performance. Actual results could differ materially as a result of changes in the Company's plans, commodity prices, equipment availability, general economic, market, regulatory and business conditions as well as production, development and operating performance and other risks associated with oil and gas operations. There is no guarantee made by the Company that the actual results achieved will be the same as those forecasted herein.

Barrel of oil equivalent ("boe") amounts may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio has been calculated using a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one barrel and is based on an energy equivalent conversion method application at the burner tip and does not necessarily represent an economic value equivalent at the wellhead.
