Siberian Energy to Present at IPAA Oil and Gas Symposium

NEW YORK, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- April 20, 2007 -- Siberian Energy Group, Inc. (OTCBB: SIBN) announced today that the Company is scheduled to present at The Independent Petroleum Association of America's (IPAA) Oil and Gas Symposium, April 23-25, 2007 at the Sheraton NY Hotel and Towers in New York City.

David Zaikin, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Siberian Energy, will give a presentation on the Company followed by a question and answer session on Wednesday, April 25, at 3:20 p.m. EDT. The presentation will be broadcast live over the Internet and will be archived for 12 months. Interested parties may listen to the presentation by visiting the Company's website at:

In addition, Siberian Energy will host breakfast roundtables for investors between 7:45 and 8:30 a.m. EDT, on Tuesday, April 24, and Wednesday, April 25.

Siberian Energy's Joint Venture with Baltic Petroleum (E&P) Limited, Zauralneftegaz (ZNG) and Siberian's wholly owned subsidiary, Kondaneftegaz (KNG), hold oil and gas exploration licenses covering over one million acres, strategically located in the Kurgan and Khanty-Mansiysk regions of West Siberia. The West Siberian region accounts for 70% of oil production and 90% of natural gas production in Russia and 7% of global oil production.

In January 2007, ZNG began exploratory drilling on its first well, Privolny 1, and expects to report initial results in the second quarter of 2007. The location for a second well, Privolny 2 -- is being determined. In addition, preparations are being made to drill in the southwest of the Mokrousovsky parcel, which is one of the seven blocks covered by ZNG's exploratory licenses.

More recently, KNG applied for nine oil and gas licenses, and is anticipating final approval for four of these in the second quarter of 2007. These prospective license areas have several competitive advantages through their proven oil deposits, proximity to a previously developed river transportation system (through which KNG will be able to deliver equipment for the wells) and proximity to major oil and gas pipelines.
