Innocent, Inc. (INCT) Signs Joint Venture Agreement To Explore For Oil And Gas

|Includes: Falcon Crest Energy Inc. (PNEG)

Innocent, a development stage oil and gas drilling and exploration company, today announced that it has entered an exploration agreement with Evergreen Petroleum of Dallas, TX.

Evergreen, which has more than 150 years of experience in the oil and gas industry, will be the General Manager of the Exploration Project. Evergreen will be responsible for selecting areas to lease, drilling exploratory wells, drilling development wells, and producing oil and gas found. Evergreen has conducted and will continue to conduct both regional and local geological studies to define prospects that are worthy of acquiring oil and gas leases. Preliminary examinations of title to the minerals in these selected areas and the acquisition of said leases will be carried out for and on behalf of Innocent and Evergreen ("the Parties") by Pacer Energy LLC ("Pacer") of Gillette, Wyoming.

As Operator of the drilling venture, L & J Operating Inc. of Gillette, Wyoming, will be responsible for obtaining the required bonds, preparing the Joint Operating Agreement A.A.P.L. Form 610 - 1989, selecting all contractors and suppliers, payment of all invoices, sale of produced oil, payment of Ad Valorem, conservation, severance taxes and payment to the Parties of their net income on a monthly basis. Innocent will engage engineering and geological consultants as required. All the activities of the Operator shall be under the supervision of the Parties to this agreement, including daily and other interval reports.

The primary area of interest is the Powder River Basin of Wyoming, particularly where the objective oil-bearing formations are less than 2,500 feet below the surface; however, other prospective areas in Wyoming will be studied as well. In general, prospects will be direct offsets to former production or to wells with very good oil and gas shows. The expected lower API gravities of the oil will require secondary recovery via water, gas or other floods including steam or fire flooding. Also, new methods of radial horizontal drilling in the reservoirs will be utilized.

Patrick Johnson, newly appointed COO of Innocent, stated, "We are excited to partner with Evergreen. They are as experienced in the region as anyone, and we are excited and optimistic at what the future can bring to us both."
