Snatcher-1 Well Flows 218 Barrels of Oil Per Day on ACOR’s ORRI

  Snatcher-1 Well Flows 218 Barrels of Oil Per Day on ACOR’s ORRI under PEL
  111 in South Australia - Snatcher-2 to Begin Drilling in Approx. Seven (7)

Business Wire

CISCO, Texas -- July 28, 2009

Australian-Canadian Oil Royalties Ltd. (herein called ACOR) (OTCBB:AUCAF) is
pleased to announce that the operator, Victoria Petroleum N.L. (Vicpet) for
the PEL 111 Joint Venture, advises that the Short Term Production Test at
Snatcher-1 has resulted in a flow to the surface from the Birkhead Formation
of clean 48 degree API oil at a rate of 218 barrels per day on a 12/64 in

The Short Term Production Test will continue over the next week to establish
stabilized production rates and reservoir pressure information for future long
term production.

Snatcher-1 was a successful test of the oil bearing potential of the Snatcher
Prospect adjacent to the Santos Limited operated Charo Field in PPL 177. The
PPL 177 license is wholly contained within PEL 111.

ACOR owns a 1/10^th of 1% ORRI under PEL 111, covering approximately 292,819
gross acres.

Rig Moves to immediately Drill Snatcher-2 Well on ACOR’s ORRI

Drill site preparation activities are in progress at the Snatcher-2
exploration well location for the planned drilling of Snatcher-2, expected to
commence drilling in approximately 7 days time. The Century drilling rig is
currently stacked at the Snatcher-1 well location, ready to move.

The Snatcher-2 exploration well location is approximately 2,949 feet to the
northwest of Snatcher-1.

ACOR management looks forward to the drilling results from the Snatcher-2
exploration well as a discovery here would further confirm our belief in the
potential of the Western Margin Oil Project within PEL 111.

About the Western Margin Oil Trend:

The new Snatcher oil field discovery on ACOR’s ORRI under PEL 111 could
possibly help discover a major new oil province that could possibly extend
west to ACOR’s PEL 112. The production testing of the Snatcher-1 well is
planned to be carried out in mid July.

The western margin oil trend is an attractive exploration target for two

  * It is one of the few places where hydrocarbons from Cooper Basin source
    rocks can migrate into traps in the overlying Eromanga Basin. In most
    places, a cap rock at the unconformity between the Cooper and Eromanga
    prevents this happening, but along the western margin the cap rock is
    faulted, eroded or otherwise missing.
  * Secondly, the western margin is only lightly explored. Santos made oil
    discoveries at Charo and Callabonna in the early 1990s, but it left
    thousands of square miles unexplored because of its priority on gas

Recent drilling successes by Beach Petroleum, Cooper Energy and Victoria
Petroleum on adjoining leases in the Cooper/Eromanga Basin in the Namur
sandstone have operators theorizing that migration of oil past the
Cooper/Eromanga Basin's Permian zero edge is highly possible.
