CanArgo Energy Corporation: Non-Executive Chairman Steps Down



CanArgo Energy Corporation reported that Dr. David Robson has tendered his resignation from the positions of Non-Executive Chairman and Non-Executive Director of the Board of CanArgo with immediate effect. Dr. Robson is stepping down in order to focus on the development of Tethys Petroleum Limited ("Tethys") of which he is Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Robson informed the Company on January 21, 2008 of his intention not to stand for re-election as a Director of the Company at the next Annual Meeting of Stockholders because of potential conflicts of interest with his duties and workload with Tethys. In light of this, and following a meeting of the Board, the Board asked Dr. Robson to stand down at this point in time.

Vincent McDonnell will become acting Chairman of the Board in addition to his duties as President and Chief Executive Officer. The resignation of Dr. Robson means that the Company now needs to appoint only one new independent director to the Board in order to regain compliance with the American Stock Exchange continued listing rule.

Vincent McDonnell, President and Chief Executive Officer said "I would like to thank David for his invaluable input to the development of CanArgo and his very significant contribution to the Company over the last eleven years. I wish him every success in the future."
