Questerre Announces Second Quarter Results

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Aug. 16, 2005) - Questerre Energy Corporation (TSX:QEC) ("Questerre" or the "Company") reported today on its financial and operating results for the second quarter of 2005.

The Company reported revenue of $0.52 million for the three months ended June 30, 2005 up from $0.44 million for the three months ended March 31, 2005. Cash flow from operations improved from a loss of $9,900 in the first quarter of 2005 to a gain of $91,600 for the second quarter of this year.

Production over the second quarter increased to 148 boe per day from 100 boe per day during the first quarter. The Company participated in the drilling of three wells in Alberta during the quarter. All three wells (1.4 net wells) were cased for production as gas producers and will be tied-in during the third quarter. Stabilized production from these wells will depend on facility constraints. Activity during the quarter was less than expected due to an unusually wet spring and flooding conditions in June.

Highlights for the quarter include the following:

- Testing of its discovery well in the Vulcan area of Southern Alberta and expansion of its acreage prospective for this play to 8,320 acres;

- Execution of a farm-in agreement with Ampac Petroleum Inc. for the Beaver River Field; and

- Completion of its $10 million offering in Norway and listing on the Oslo Stock Exchange.
