MAY 2009: PALAU PACIFIC EXPLORATION COMPLETES FINAL STAGE OF SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH AS A PRECURSOR TO NEW DRILLING PROGRAM
Palau Pacific Exploration (PPX) reports that Fugro Airborne Surveys has concluded the airborne acquisition of aeromagnetic data within the designated one million acre North Block concession situated offshore of the State of Kayangel in the Republic of Palau. The purpose of the aeromagnetic survey is to map basement rock and lithology. The data will be processed, interpreted and tied into the existing seismic data with a comprehensive approach to modeling and quantifying depths to potential target horizons. In addition, an accurate map of the basement surface as well as the possible sedimentary package over the concession area will be created. This work will result in further refinement of the drilling locations in conjunction with existing geologic, geophysical, and geochemical work done to date for the anticipated drilling program.

The meeting was attended by top officials and engineers representing the Fugro Synergy drill ship from Fugro Well Services Limited of Aberdeen, Scotland and Fugro Geoconsulting Limited of Houston, Texas along with all members of PPX including Mr. Jack Pierce PPX’s on the ground project coordinator in Palau. The meeting was also attended by representatives from the project concession holders, Palau Pacific Energy (PPE).

The meetings signified the official commencement of the project planning and well design process of the project in order to assure that the site in Palau is ready to receive the drill ship in the 4th quarter of 2009 in order to begin drilling the test wells.

“The kick off was conducted over two days in Houston and was a very successful meeting drawing together the knowledge and experience of everyone involved in this project from financing and project management through to geology, engineering and geophysics. Over twelve people from five different countries attended, with the common goal of efficiently testing for hydrocarbons in the most environmentally sensitive manner possible in Palau,” said Justin Pettett Director of PPX. “Work is well and truly underway and on schedule for a spud date during the 4th quarter of 2009.”

1 NOVEMBER : PERFECT TIMING FOR PALAU PACIFIC
“This environment couldn’t be better for the private placement capital raise of Palau Pacific Exploration” said AFE’s Simon Heapes this week. “Most investors are still very nervous about the stock markets and equally concerned about further currency volatility” added Heapes.

“Then added to that all indicators are that oil prices will sky rocket in the year ahead due structural supply decline. With an indicated over 1 billion barrels in place, sophisticated investors are recognizing that Palau Pacific is unique; it is a potentially huge oil resource which is still in a private offering and not yet in the hands of a major oil company or victim to global stock markets.”
