Storm Cat Energy Corporation Increases Flow-Through Offering

CALGARY, ALBERTA and DENVER, COLORADO--(CCNMatthews - Sept. 20, 2005) -


Storm Cat Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SME) (the "Corporation") is pleased to announce that, due to strong investor demand being conveyed to the Corporation by the selling agents, including the agents' indication that they will take up the entire over-allotment option, the Corporation is increasing the flow-through component of its equity financing first announced on August 22, 2005.

The financing will now consist of up to 1,875,000 units (including the over-allotment option) ($4,500,000 CDN) and 2,142,858 flow-through common shares ($6,000,000 CDN) (the "Offering').

Northern Securities, Inc. remains as lead agent for the Offering; and the other material terms of the Offering, including pricing, remain unchanged. Each unit, priced at $2.40 per unit, comprises one common share and one-half of one common share purchase warrant. Each whole warrant will be exercisable to purchase one additional common share at a price of $3.00 per share for a period of 18 months from closing. Each flow-through common share is priced at $2.80 per share.

The net proceeds from the sale of the units will be used to further the Corporation's exploration and development program in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming and for general corporate purposes. All of the proceeds from the sale of flow-through common shares will be used to incur exploration and development expenses which qualify as CEE under the Income Tax Act (Canada), with the Corporation's current principal focus in Canada being on its project in Elk Valley, British Columbia.
