MANAGEMENT CHANGE

Tuscany wishes to announce the appointment of Charles A. Teare as Chief Financial Officer.

OUTLOOK

The Company remains optimistic as a more positive outlook for the energy industry could lead to a significant improvement in market conditions during 2008.

Additional production from Tuscany's Wildwood well in Alberta should offset production declines in Saskatchewan. At the end of Q1 2008, the Company's production is estimated to have increased to over 220 BOEd. This production increase, combined with record high oil prices, should bring the Company's balance sheet to a healthier state by mid-year. The Company continues to evaluate various alternatives to enhance shareholder value and the future of Tuscany.

As the Company continues to focus on optimizing its assets, Tuscany plans to carefully manage its cash and allocate its remaining 2007 flow-through obligations of $800,000 within its core areas that will ultimately create additional cash flow and increase the company's production and reserves.

Tuscany Energy Ltd. is an emerging junior oil and gas company engaged in the acquisition, exploration and development of oil and natural gas reserves in western Canada.

BOE Presentation - The term barrels of oil equivalent (BOE) may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 6 Mcf : 1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. All BOE conversions in this report are derived by converting gas to oil in the ratio of six Mcf of gas to one Bbl of oil.

Forward-looking statements - statements included in this press release that are not historical facts may be considered "forward-looking statements." All estimates and statements that describe the Company's objectives, goals or future plans are forward-looking statements. Forward-looking statements involve inherent risks and uncertainties where actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated.
