                                                                22 February 2007

               Novera Energy Limited ('Novera' or 'the Company')

                                Board Appointment

Novera today announced that Roy Franklin OBE will succeed John Brown as its
Chairman at the Annual General Meeting in May 2007. Roy has been appointed as a
non-executive director in the interim to assist with a smooth transition.

The appointment follows John Brown's request to stand down from the Board, due
to other commitments.  The Board would like to thank John for his leadership and
guidance during a critical time in the evolution of the company.

Roy, a veteran of the energy industry, was formerly Chief Executive of
independent oil company Paladin Resources plc, prior to which he was Group
Managing Director of Clyde Petroleum plc. Before joining Clyde in 1991, he
worked at BP for 18 years, latterly heading up BP Exploration's acquisition and
divestitures group.  He currently chairs Bateman Litwin N.V., the AIM quoted
oilfield services group, and sits on the Board of Santos Ltd, the Australian
independent oil and gas exploration company.
