("Xtract" or the "Company")


Investment Update - Extrem Energy AS


Further to the announcement made on 29 April 2010, Xtract Energy Plc ("Xtract" or "The Company") provides the following update on current and future operations of its Turkish business Extrem Energy AS ("Extrem").


Sarikiz-2 Production


The drilling rig was mobilized back to the Sarikiz-2 well site in early May in order to conduct a work-over sequence at Sarikiz-2 to be followed by the installation of a down-hole pump to increase production potential from the well. Pump installation and commissioning activities are in progress. Further updates will be provided as appropriate.


Alasehir/Sarikiz Exploration


Following the drilling of Sarikiz-3, Extrem has begun a review of the geological model and future plans for the licence area. Additional seismic and geo-chemical data originally intended to help locate well Sarikiz-4 is available to the review. Extrem continues to have confidence in the potential of the source rocks and the existence of a working petroleum system in the area.


Licence Renewal - Siraseki


In order to manage its cash flows and to provide time for additional seismic to optimize well location for well Menekselik-1, Extrem has decided to defer the well and to re-apply for the Siraseki licence. Further updates will be provided as appropriate.


Appointment of Mr Emir Safa


Xtract is pleased to advise that Mr Emir Safa has been appointed to the board of Extrem as its second nominee director. This establishes joint control of the board, in line with joint ownership established through the Company's increase in its share-holding to 50% in February 2010. Mr Safa, aged 42, is a Turkish national and a Certified Public Accountant. His career has involved holding a number of senior finance positions with several international firms with operations and partnerships in Turkey.


Peter Moir who was recently appointed as a director of Xtract is now leading the Company's technical interactions with Extrem and with our partners Merty Energy.


The above information has been reviewed and approved by Ongun Yoldemir, Managing Director of Extrem, who has a masters degree in geological engineering and worked as an explorationist in the oil and gas sector in the Middle East, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan, and North Sea, has over 28 years' experience in the resource and energy sector and is a member of the American Association of Petroleum Geologists, European Association of Geologists and Engineers, the Society of Exploration Geophysicists and several related Turkish institutions.
