Mogul Enters LOI to Increase Interest in the East Wadi Araba Concession
Mogul Energy International has entered into a letter of intent ("LOI"), dated July 30, 2007, to complete a Business Combination with Sea Dragon Energy, Inc., a private Canadian corporation. If the Business Combination is completed as outlined in the LOI, Mogul Energy's working interest in the East Wadi Araba Concession, Gulf of Suez, Egypt would increase from 20% to 60%. The LOI is nonbinding, and the completion of the transaction is contingent upon the negotiation and entry into definitive acquisition documents, as well as upon various closing conditions imposed by such documents.
Naeem Tyab, President of Mogul Energy stated, "I believe that the planned combination of Sea Dragon's 40% interest in the EWA Concession with Mogul Energy's existing 20% interest is an exciting development for Mogul Energy. In addition to giving Mogul Energy a majority interest in the EWA Concession, the combination would allow the Company to focus the talent and resources of both companies on the development of the EWA Concession. The planned addition to Mogul Energy's management of the experienced oil and gas team from Sea Dragon should benefit the Company. The ability to increase our interest in the Concession, while focusing our combined talent and resources, are key considerations in our analysis of the merits of this combination."
The Company anticipates that David M. Thompson, President of Sea Dragon, would become the Chief Executive Officer of Mogul Energy upon the completion of the Business Combination. Mr. Thompson stated "We are excited about the combination with Mogul Energy and look forward to focusing our combined talent and resources toward development of the EWA Concession in Egypt, where we are currently drilling our first exploration well, in addition to Mogul Energy's current Canadian assets."

Mogul Energy and Sea Dragon have entered into an LOI delineating certain terms and conditions pursuant to which the proposed Business Combination will be completed.
