Wescorp Closes $3.972 Million Financing

EDMONTON, ALBERTA--(CCNMatthews - Dec. 18, 2006) - Doug Biles, CEO of Wescorp Energy Inc.(OTCBB:WSCE), today announced that the company has closed $3,972,075 US in financing by way of private placement. A total of 7,944,150 units were sold at a purchase price of $0.50 per unit. Each unit consisted of one share of common stock and one non-transferable share purchase warrant exercisable at $0.75 per share for a 24-month period. After six months from the date of issue, Wescorp has the ability to convert the warrants if the weighted average trading price of the Corporation's common shares as traded on the NASD OTC Bulletin Board for the previous ten (10) trading days was at least $1.50 per common share.

Dr. Scott Shemwell, COO, commented, "This round of funding provides us with the working capital necessary to increase the revenue of our Flowstar business unit and develop other opportunities."

Chairman Steve Cowper added, "We intend to ramp up sales of Flowstar and continue to develop our other technologies. To accomplish that goal, we needed an infusion of new capital. I would view this successful round as an endorsement of Wescorp's management and its revised business plan by our new investors. We are determined to show all our shareholders that Wescorp has assembled a winning team."

Doug Biles, CEO concludes, "It is great to close this round of financing. Now that this item is complete, we hope to increase the level of confidence our shareholders have by exhibiting proper and strong business development."
