- Based on the Evaluation, Twoco's current Net Asset Value is estimated, using a 10% discount rate, to be $3.94/share on a fully diluted basis; and

- Twoco anticipates that 2008 Year End and Fourth Quarter financial results and more detailed reserves information as required pursuant to National Instrument 51-101, which reserves information will be included in the Corporation's annual information form and filed on SEDAR, will be released in mid-April, 2009.

In this news release the calculation of barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated at a conversion rate of six thousand cubic feet (Mcf) of natural gas for one barrel (Bbl) of oil based on an energy equivalency conversion method. Boes 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 to the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

The net asset values disclosed herein do not represent fair market value.
