19 January 2005

                                                               19th January 2005
                         D1 Oils growing in Madagascar

D1 Oils plc, the UK based low cost producer of biodiesel, today announces it is
expanding in Madagascar. The Company has identified approximately 17,000
hectares of existing Jatropha plantations and has made arrangements to access
the output from the plantations. The arrangements have been made in
collaboration with business-to-business aid agency BAMEX (Business and Market
Expansion) of Madagascar. The trees are currently being used as supports for
growing vanilla and are already yielding seeds.

The first crop of Jatropha oil bearing seeds is expected to be available from
mid 2005 and harvesting is planned to commence at that time. Estimation of
outputs cannot be guaranteed to be the same as detailed in the Prospectus, due
to variations in the density of trees per Hectare. The Directors believe that
seed yields will be consistent with the age of the trees being harvested.

The area under cultivation in Madagascar is additional to the 37,000 hectares of
plantations in Africa, India and The Philippines as outlined by D1 Oils in its
Prospectus at the time of flotation in October 2004. It is also in addition to
approximately 6,000,000 hectares of land available to the Company under option
to contract. The expansion further advances the company's objective to become
the world's leading low cost producer of biodiesel and feedstock for biodiesel.

Adam Simcock, Chief Executive of D1 Africa, said: 'We are delighted to be
working with BAMEX in Madagascar and to be able to provide additional income for
the local vanilla farmers'.

Philip Wood, Chief Executive of D1 Oils plc, commented: 'The number of new
opportunities D1 Oils is engaged in reflects our increasing global profile. This
partnership, which increases our cultivation capacity announced at flotation by
nearly 50%, demonstrates the commitment and adaptability of our management team
and its ability to source additional supplies of indigenous oil which will
deliver revenue ahead of the first harvests from our new plantations. The
plantations in Madagascar are already yielding seeds which materially reduce the
working capital we would otherwise need to develop this source of supply '.
