CALGARY, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - April 11, 2006) - Rally Energy Corp. (TSX:RAL)(FWB:RLE) ("Rally Energy" or the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that its previously announced US$25 million long-term financing facilities have now received Board approval from the International Finance Corporation (the "IFC") (a member of the World Bank Group), subject to completion of applicable loan documentation which is currently expected to occur by the end of April 2006.

As part of the facilities, Rally Energy has reserved for issuance three million common share purchase warrants for the IFC, subject to completion of the loan documentation.
