                       Change to Non-Executive Directors

D1 Oils plc (D1), the UK-based global producer of biodiesel, announces that its
founder and first Chairman, Karl Watkin, has resigned today as a Non-Executive
Director of the Company.

Lord Oxburgh of Liverpool, Chairman of D1, commented on the announcement as
follows:

'Karl has made a major and critical contribution to D1 Oils. The Company has
been built on his vision for the potential of jatropha as one of the most
promising sources for sustainable biodiesel. His early conclusion that supplies
of traditional food oils and grains could not support the development of the
biofuels industry, and that alternative energy crops like jatropha would be
important sources of green fuel was truly farsighted.'
