                                         Result of AGM and AGM Statement
                                                        
At the Annual General Meeting ("AGM" or "the meeting") of the Company held today at 1400 hours all resolutions as
put to the meeting were passed.

At the meeting the Chairman, Derek Musgrove, also made the following statement:

"The  last two months have seen substantial partners join in nine of the Italian licences operated by our partner
Northern  Petroleum.  I see these farmouts, and the ongoing industry interest in joining the  other  ventures  in
which  we have a commercial interest, as clear demonstration of the potential of our assets. I am confident  that
the continuing efforts will see further deals completed in 2009.

The  Southern  Adriatic  area  remains a key building block to our future as it has significant  development  and
exploration  potential.  So far there are six drilling prospects having been independently  assessed  to  have  a
combined potential net to ATI of 1.14 billion barrels of oil in place at a P50 probability, rising to a potential
of 3.01 billion barrels at a P10 probability.

I expect in the year ahead that further deals will be made and welcome involvement in ATI's first Italian well in
the onshore Savio licence in the Eastern Po Basin."


The Directors of the Issuer accept responsibility for this announcement.
