Sagres Prepares for Drilling Offshore Jamaica

Sagres Prepares for Drilling Offshore Jamaica

Sagres Energy Inc., an international oil and gas company with an exploration portfolio in Colombia, Guyana and Jamaica, provides an update on its activities in Jamaica.

The company’s subsidiary, Rainville Energy Corporation (“Rainville”), is a party to three production sharing agreements with the Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica (the “PCJ”) covering the right to explore and develop Blocks 9, 13 and 14 covering approximately 8,864 km² located offshore Jamaica (the “Blocks”).

The minimum exploration work commitments under each of the production sharing agreements are divided into two phases. The PCJ has granted Rainville an extension to the first phase until April 30, 2012 to allow potential joint venture partners sufficient time to complete their evaluation of the Blocks. Concurrently, the Company is in discussions with several parties with regards to a potential farm-in on these properties.

Mr. Gary Wine, President and CEO of Sagres stated that “we continue to be excited by the potential of the La Concepcion prospect, a prospect mapped straddling Blocks 9 and 13, with an independent evaluation establishing a gross mean prospective resource estimate of 3.0 billion barrels. We look forward to advancing this project to the drilling stage and we are holding discussions with potential partners”. Resources estimates are pursuant to the Company’s NI 51-101 Report prepared by Chapman described in a press release of the Company dated August 27, 2010.
