Trafina Energy Ltd. ("Trafina" or "the Company") (TSX VENTURE:TFA.A) announces that wet weather continues to delay completion of the Company's first Cardium oil well in the Pembina area of Alberta. The four kilometre road to the lease and the lease itself are very wet and drying has been slowed by the presence of trees close to the road. The operator considered matting the road and lease at a cost of approximately $750,000, but decided to wait out the weather.

Mr. Marcinew has 27 years of experience in the oil and gas industry and has been serving Trafina as a geological consultant.
