Eureka! Pacific Energy's Platform Back On-Line

Pacific Energy Resources Ltd. announced that Platform Eureka has been returned to producing status.

Darren Katic, Pacific's President said "We are extremely pleased that after only thirteen months since assuming operations this has been accomplished; we expect this event to have a dramatic effect on the value of the Beta Oil Field and on the Company as a whole."

This first phase of production is expected to yield between 1,000 and 2,000 barrels per day. The Company's current plan is to return the platform to full production in the third quarter 2008. Year-end 2008 production from the Beta Oil Field is projected to be in excess of 7,000 barrels per day (Platform Ellen of 2,600 and Platform Eureka at 4,400).
