Park Place Energy Withdraws from Ridgewood Prospect

Parker Place Energy has elected not to proceed with Britcana Energy in the drilling of a 9,000' exploration well in the North Sea on the Ridgewood Prospect and will forfeit the $200,000 deposit. This decision was concluded after conducting additional due diligence.

Park Place is excited about moving forward with respect to its other high impact properties located in both the North Sea and Canada. David Stadnyk, President and C.E.O. of Park Place Energy stated "After carefully analyzing the risks and rewards associated with participating in the expensive Ridgewood Prospect Park Place's management believes that at this point in time it is in the best interest of the Corporation to focus its attention on advancing its world class projects at Eight Mile in British Columbia Canada and Brighty in the North Sea that is the same play type as the prolific Buzzard Field that is predicted will produce over 150 million barrels of oil over its productive life. These are exciting times for Park Place Energy and we look forward to building shareholder value by participating in high impact opportunities."

Park Place Energy is first and foremost an international high impact energy play corporation. Currently, its primary activity is in oil and gas exploration in the North Sea, as well as the development and production of its Canadian assets including the recently announced major gas find in British Columbia. Park Place utilizes its expertise in the oil and gas industry to enhance shareholder value and profitability by pursuing attractive opportunities in the international oil and gas industry. Using the appropriate financial resources and the latest technologies, Park Place Energy, through creative joint ventures and innovative partnerships, has a strategic five-year operating plan to optimize profitability and shareholder value.
