Realm Negotiating on Additional European Shale Gas Play

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 9, 2010) - Further to the January 26, 2010 news release, Realm Energy International Corporation ("Realm Energy") (TSX VENTURE:RLM) ( is pleased to announce negotiations on an additional European shale gas play.

Realm Energy recently entered into direct and exclusive negotiations for petroleum and natural gas rights with a European Government in which the Company has identified a potential large-scale shale gas opportunity. These lands cover an areal extent of over 182,000 hectares or 450,000 + acres. Consistent with most European countries, consideration for the award of these lands largely comprises a prudent work program over the life of the concessions. Management is working toward reaching final agreement on these lands in the near future, at which time more detailed information will be disclosed.

Realm Energy is collaborating with Halliburton Consulting (NYSE: HAL) in aggressively evaluating high potential shale deposits throughout Europe and select emerging countries. Founded in 1919, Halliburton is one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the energy industry. With more than 50,000 employees in approximately 70 countries, the company serves the upstream oil and gas industry throughout the life cycle of the reservoir-from locating hydrocarbons and managing geological data, to drilling and formation evaluation, well construction and completion, and optimizing production through the life of the field.
