TSX Venture), ("Tiger-Cat") is pleased to announce that it has entered into an
agreement with Tri-Star Petroleum Company and Tri-Star Australia Holding Company
(both referred to herein as "Tri-Star": website www.tristarpetroleum.com),
through which agreement  Tiger-Cat (by its wholly owned Australian subsidiary
Bronco Energy Pty Ltd. ("Bronco") (Tiger-Cat and Bronco are together referred to

Tri-Star an Overriding Royalty (the "Tri-Star Royalty") of 3.125% of the
Tiger-Cat transfer interest of revenues from production. In addition, after
payout of the costs of Tiger-Cat, Tri-Star will be entitled to convert the
Tri-Star Royalty to 10% of the transfer interest held by Tiger-Cat. Completion
of the transaction is conditional upon government approval being received for
the assignment
of the Authorities to Prospect ("ATPs").  Tiger-Cat Energy Ltd. has guaranteed
the obligations of Bronco under the Agreement. 
The Farm-in agreement provides that for the payment of AUS$350,000 by Tiger-Cat,
Tiger-Cat will acquire all of Tri-star's interest in four ATPs located in the
state of Queensland, Australia. The four ATP's are known as ATP 631, ATP 735,
ATP 803, and ATP 804. The four ATPs occupy approximately 870,675  acres (3,525
square kilometers) and are located in the Bowen Basin and Surat Basin, of
Queensland approximately 400 km northwest of Brisbane. The four ATPs are in
close proximity to existing coal seam methane ("CSM") production and pipeline
and other infrastructure necessary for the sale of CSM.  Research by the
Australian Gas Association estimates the Bowen and Surat Basin coal seam gas
resource at between 124,000 and 192,000 producible petajoules (one petajoule
equals approximately 0.97156 Bcf).

including geophysical surveys, filed mapping and exploratory drilling. Once
petroleum identified as being present, the holder of an ATP may apply for a
Petroleum Lease which allows for additional exploration, appraisal and
development of the lands. 
In addition, Tiger-Cat announces that it has hired Cameron Selin as Chief
Operating Officer, Australia.  Mr. Selin is a resident of Australia. He is a
chartered Professional Engineer and as well holds a Masters of Business
Administration degree. He has worked in the oil and gas industry since 1986 both
in Australia and internationally. His employment history includes over five
years of employment with Santos Ltd. (one of Australia's largest oil and gas
producers). Mr. Selin will be responsible for Tiger-Cat's operations in
In addition, Christopher McArthur has ceased to be a director and officer of
Tiger-Cat and its subsidiaries. Mr. McArthur was formerly the President and
Chief Financial Officer of Tiger-Cat. John Zang CEO will assume the role of
President and Willey Wong, who is currently Vice President of Finance, will
assume the role of Chief Financial Officer on an interim basis. 
John Zang, President and CEO, stated that "management believes that the
acquisition of the Australian properties will provide Tiger-Cat with a real
growth opportunity. While the operations at the Reagan, Alberta property will
continue, the growth potential of that property is limited. Management believes
that in today's oil and gas environment Australia presents Tiger-Cat with an
opportunity to see significant growth. We believe that with the addition of Cam
Selin Tiger-Cat has the necessary knowledge and expertise to further develop its
business in Australia."
