United Reef Appoints Doug Brown to the Board

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 13, 2006) - United Reef Limited (TSX VENTURE:URP)(CNQ:URPL) is pleased to announce the appointment of Douglas S. Brown, P.Eng. as a director of the Company. Doug brings substantial expertise to the board through his operating experience in both the domestic and international oil and gas industries. We believe his association with United Reef will be of substantial benefit to guide our continuing investment in the oil and gas sector. Doug will fill the vacancy on the board created by the resignation of Dr. Mousseau Tremblay as director and Chairman of the Company.

Doug has been the Vice-President of Production and Engineering of Rally Energy Corp. since March 2005. Rally has operations in Egypt, Pakistan and Canada. Prior to joining Rally, Doug provided technical consulting services to the petroleum industry in Canada through his consulting company which specializes in production optimization, reserve evaluation and operations management. His consulting practice has provided production and exploitation engineering services to Calgary based oil and gas companies with projects focusing on heavy oil reservoir and production optimization in Eastern Alberta, new gas pool exploration and development, bypassed pay exploitation and reactivation and late life gas well production optimization.

Doug has over 25 years of experience in oil and gas discovery, development and production operations and optimization. He has executed capital and operating business plans in virtually every play type in Western Canada while serving in capacities as technical contributor, middle and senior management positions with Amoco Canada (14 years), and BP Canada (2 years). He also served as Vice-President of Corporate Development for Flint Energy Services for 2 years, where he further developed entrepreneurial and market focused skills. Doug received his B.Sc. in electrical engineering from the University of Calgary in 1985. He holds the designation of P.Eng. granted by the Association of Petroleum Engineers, Geologists and Geophysicists of Alberta (APEGGA) and is a member of the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE).

Mr. Brown is a shareholder of General Gas Corporation which closed a transaction with United Reef in November, 2006 (see press release dated November 16, 2006) wherein the companies formed an alliance through a new private Alberta company, General Reef Corporation (formerly 1270194 Alberta Ltd.), for the purpose of acquiring, exploring and developing oil and gas properties in North America. Mr. Brown is a director of General Reef Corporation and is providing advisory services to the management of that company.

We would like to extend our sincere thanks to Dr. Tremblay who has served as a director of the Company since 1992 and has acted as Chairman of the board since 1993. Dr. Tremblay will continue to have a relationship with the Company in the capacity as an advisor on the Company's mineral assets and to provide advice based on his long association with exploration in the Central African Republic.
