South Sea Ups Stake in the Powder River Basin & Appoints New Board Member

South Sea Energy has entered into an agreement to acquire the rights to the South Glenrock "C" oil field located in the Powder River Basin, Wyoming. Upon closing, South Sea will have a 99.5 % working interest, together with a 78% Net Royalty Interest in South Glenrock "C" field. The prospect is located in Converse County, southeast of Casper and is analogous, from a geological perspective, to the nearby Salt Creek field, which is currently benefiting from a successful CO2 injection program by the Anadarko Petroleum Corporation.

In related news, the Company has filed to change its name to Ameriwest Energy Corp., which best reflects management's current strategic outlook and planned shift towards the US domestic energy sector.

Mr. Wright has over 20 years experience in finance and administrative management in both private and public companies.

Since 1997, Mr. Wright has been the president and CEO of First Merit Group Ltd., a private venture capital and investment firm. Mr. Wright received a law degree from the University of Victoria in 1986 and a bachelor's degree from the University of Alberta in 1981.
