D1 Oils Q2 2006 Update

                  D1 Oils Q2 2006 Planting and Refining Update

1 August, 2006

D1 Oils plc (D1), the UK-based global producer of biodiesel, announces its
quarterly agronomy and refining update for the second quarter ended 30 June


Up to 30 June 2006 D1 has planted or obtained the rights to offtake from
plantings of a total of 68,210 hectares of jatropha worldwide. This represents
an increase of 26,110 hectares on the total planting of 42,100 hectares up to 31
March, as announced on 26 April, and exceeds internal targets.

The bulk of the increase in planting for the quarter is accounted for by
operations in South East Asia, primarily in Indonesia. Our global planting
programme is determined by the changes in the seasons, and the beginning of
summer in the Indian subcontinent and autumn in Southern Africa determines that
only limited planting is possible in the second quarter of the calendar year.
Planting will recommence in India and Southern Africa in the third quarter.
Weather conditions in South East Asia are suitable for planting throughout the

The cumulative position at 30 June is summarised in the table below:

           Managed         Contract      Seed purchase and           Total
           plantations     farming       oil supply agreements
India      -               10,505        16,118                      26,623
Southern   5,155           -             2,000                       7,155
South      -               26,693        7,739                       34,432
Total      5,155           37,198        25,857                      68,210

Managed plantations are those farms where the land and labour is directly

controlled by D1. In contract farming individual farmers purchase seed and

seedlings from and enter into offtake agreements with D1. Trees are planted on

the farmers' own land. Seed purchase and oil supply agreements represent offtake
contracts over existing jatropha planting.


Our refinery programme is on track with the first four D1 20 production units
now in place at our new refinery centre in Middlesbrough. We expect all four
units to be in production by the end of September 2006, creating an interim
capacity of 32,000 tonnes per annum. The first unit has now been run at 100% of
flow sheet while successfully producing biodiesel from soya oil.

The D1 20 has a capacity of 8,000 tonnes per annum and has been successfully
tested on a range of feedstocks including rapeseed, soya, palm olein and

Following the adoption of the Fuel Tax Bill 2006 in Australia, effective 1 July
2006, fuel tax arrangements have been rationalised in relation to mineral diesel
and biodiesel. Following these amendments, credits have been provided to mineral
diesel for off road use, power generation and consumption in large trucks. In
response to these amendments we are reviewing with our local partners the
business plan for D1 Australia Limited, to which an exclusive refinery franchise
for the Australian and New Zealand markets was granted in May 2006.


The first shipment of 2,000 tonnes of soya vegetable oil for refining into
biodiesel was delivered to the Middlesbrough refinery site from the wharf on the
River Tees in June. We expect inbound tanker shipments to rise to 6,000 tonnes
per month by the time the refinery site reaches 72,000 tonnes of capacity.

Elliott Mannis, Chief Executive Officer of D1 Oils, commented: 'This is an
excellent result, with planting up over 60%. It exceeds expectations for a
quarter in which seasonal weather patterns limit continuous planting to South
East Asia. Given that the next quarter will see both continued planting in South
East Asia and a resumption of planting in India and Southern Africa, the
progress is very promising. Although we are reviewing our refinery franchise
business in Australia in response to changes in the tax regime, our UK refinery
deployment programme is proceeding well and we are excited at the prospect of
having the first refinery cluster in full production by the end of September.'
