Granby Secures Rig Slot for April/May 2008

Granby Oil and Gas has reached agreement with AGR Petroleum to utilize the semi-submersible drilling rig Transocean Prospect to drill a well in the central North Sea. Drilling is expected to commence around April 2008.

Granby will decide which prospect will be drilled early next year following interpretation of four new seismic surveys, which were acquired earlier in 2007. The rig could also be utilized for farm in to an appraisal or development opportunity.

David Grassick, Managing Director of Granby Oil and Gas, said:

"We are very pleased to have secured this rig. Whilst we have yet to identify which prospect we plan to drill, this rig provides us with a certain amount of flexibility and opportunities and will ensure further drilling activity early next year."
