Triton American Energy Acquires Interest in Four Additional Wells


HOUSTON, TX -- 10/28/2004 -- Triton American Energy Corp. (OTC: TRAE) of Houston, TX., is pleased to announce they have acquired interest in four additional wells. These wells are located within the Ellisor Field in East Texas.

Two of the wells which were acquired possess natural gas. The first well had an outflow of 220,000 cubic feet of gas per day. Geologists anticipate the well to last approximately 3 additional years. Once the well runs dry, Triton will convert it into a water injection well. This process will save Triton time and money from transporting excess water from additional wells.

The second gas bearing well which Triton has acquired is set in place with a work over rig on the well. After geologist surveyed this well, it was determined it should produce 250,000 cubic feet of gas per day.

The third well which was acquired comprises oil. This well was also surveyed by geologist and had an initial outflow of 12 to 15 barrels per day.

Based on the aggressive acquisition strategy of Triton, management acquired one well bore which was converted to a salt water injection well. This acquisition was designed to save Triton the time and cost of exporting water which is frequent found in gas and oil bearing wells.

Triton American Energy, President Louis Guidry states, “Our business model is to continually build our company through acquisitions and cutting costs. 2004 has been an exceptional year of growth for Triton. We anticipate our wells from the Ellisor field to drive in revenue by mid February 2005.”
