Boca Raton, FL June 30, 2009 - Relative to the Joint Venture Project Mckenzie Draw Seisma is now able to announce that a Patterson UTI Rig is currently on the McKenzie Draw #1 location. Seisma's partner Enermax of Hurst, TX is currently securing funding for the remaining unsold interest and Bret Boteler, President of EnerMax has assured Seisma that Enermax anticipates announcing the actual spud date within the next 6-8 weeks.  Mr. Boteler has also stated that their observations of the recent market prices will have oil stabilized in the neighborhood of $70 per barrel which is good news for all involved.

Further, EnerMax's geologist's analysis which relies upon data collected through their Proprietary filtering process of the area beneath the drill site has been successful in identifying the Devonian formation. The nearest analogue field, just two miles to the north of the Mckenzie draw drill site, has produced in excess of 26 million barrels of oil to date. They have also determined that there will be dependable sub surface well control.

Subsequent analysis has shown a potential for San Andres and Wolfcamp production which may allow for two to three potential offset locations, of which current partners will have first right of refusal.

Mckenzie draw is a large acreage position with well over 2,300 acres that could be further developed in the future. Historically Yoakum County, which is the home of Mckenzie Draw #1, is the third top producing county in Texas; a fact that cannot be denied and continues to offer great promise.
