W. Michael Ford, Chief Executive Officer commented:

"We are pleased to provide these updated reserve figures. The increase in 1P reserves is a result of our successful development drilling program in the Bone Springs play. As we continue to drill development wells in the play, we anticipate our 1P reserves will continue to increase as we prove up probable and possible reserves from the 2P and 3P categories."

About Caza

Caza is engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of hydrocarbons in the following regions of the United States of America through its subsidiary, Caza Petroleum, Inc.: Permian Basin (West Texas and Southeast New Mexico) and Texas and Louisiana Gulf Coast (on-shore).

The Toronto Stock Exchange has neither approved nor disapproved the information contained herein.

In accordance with AIM Rules - Guidance Note for Mining, Oil and Gas Companies, the information contained in this announcement has been reviewed and approved by Anthony B. Sam, Vice President Operations of Caza who is a Petroleum Engineer and a member of The Society of Petroleum Engineers.

Note on Reserves Data:

The reserves data set out herein have been extracted from the Reserves Report and are presented on a net basis. The evaluation of the reserves data included in the Reserves Report complies with standards set out in the Canadian Oil and Gas Evaluation Handbook prepared jointly by the Society of Petroleum Evaluation Engineers (Calgary Chapter) and the Canadian Institute of Mining, Metallurgy & Petroleum (Petroleum Society).

Totals may not add because of rounding. Mbbl, MMcf and Mboe refer to thousand barrels, million cubic feet and thousand barrels of oil equivalent, respectively.

The term boe may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion of six thousand cubic feet per one barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.

Possible reserves are those additional reserves that are less certain to be recovered than probable reserves. There is a 10% probability that the quantities actually recovered will equal or exceed the sum of proved plus probable plus possible reserves.
