Houston American Energy Begins Production in Acadia Parish, Louisiana

Houston American Energy begins first production from its Baronet #2 well in the Crowley Field, Acadia Parish, Louisiana. The Baronet #2 produced 3001 mcf of natural gas and 1.7 barrels of oil in the last 24 hours on a 14/64" choke at 2100 psi FTP. Production is from the Hayes Sand at 11,840' TVD. Houston American owns a 3% Working Interest and 2.25% Net revenue Interest until payout.

"We are very pleased with the results from this discovery well. Assuming consistent performance from this well, a development well is expected to be drilled in the 4th quarter of 2005. This well will also test deeper objectives which are now believed to have potential. The Baronet #2 discovery and its additional upside potential, represents a real good addition to our domestic asset base," said John F. Terwilliger, Chairman, Houston American Energy Corp.
