Update -- Delta Oil and Gas Cases Todd Creek Well

SEATTLE, WA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- June 20, 2005 -- Delta Oil and Gas, Inc. (OTC BB: DOIG) is pleased to announce that the drilling on the Todd Creek Well located in 13-28-9-2W5 in Alberta, Canada, has been completed as it reached the targeted depth and the well has been cased for testing. Testing and completion of the well is expected to occur this summer. Until the testing phase of the well is completed, the well is subject to "tight hole" status by the operator of the well which means that no further information can be released at this time.

The objective of the 13-28 well is to access several gas sands. Following the evaluation of the 13-28 well, additional drilling is anticipated during the second half of the year on company lands.

In February 2005, the Company acquired a 20% working interest in 13.75 sections of land (approximately 8800 acres) in Todd Creek. The company also has an option to earn 15% in 7 additional sections of land (approximately 4,480) acres. The operator of the Todd Creek concession has received a license to install a gas plant facility for up to 10,000 mcf/day of gas to be located just south of Company lands. While Delta Oil and Gas will have no direct interest in the plant, the immediate access to market for its anticipated production from the area, is of substantial benefit.
