June 14th, 2011: Shediac, Canada: MCW Energy Group Ltd. ("MCW"), an oil distribution and production company, is pleased to announce that an offering of convertible debt has been successfully placed with a group of well-established investors from Hong Kong and North America, facilitated by the lead investment group, Pacific Seaboard Ltd. of Hong Kong. The notes are carrying an annual coupon rate of 7 percent and are convertible at the current price of MCW common shares.

The Company raised gross proceeds of 3.0 million USD in this private placement, which will be utilized in MCW’s oil sands development program in Asphalt Ridge, Utah.

David Sutton, Chief Executive Officer of MCW said, “We’re very pleased that Pacific Seaboard and its group of co-investors have fast-tracked their investment decision on MCW’s private placement, which will provide us with sufficient liquidity to initiate the development of our oil sands program. Thanks to this strengthened capital base, we’ll be able to move forward immediately with the fabrication of our initial oil extraction plant, as well as the development of our oil sands project.”

The forward progress of the Company’s oil sands resource includes the implementation of oil extraction technology, an environmentally-friendly, closed-loop system utilizing benign solvents which are circulated and recycled within the continuous flow/feed system. The technology requires no water in the extraction process, emits no greenhouse gases and is capable of extracting up to 98 percent of hydrocarbons.

The Company plans to immediately commence the fabrication of its first scalable, mobile oil extraction unit in order to develop its oil sands lease in the prolific Asphalt Ridge region of Utah, which contains a proven resource of 50+ million barrels of oil, confirmed by studies by the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE) and recently verified in an independent consultant’s evaluation performed by Chapman Petroleum Engineering Ltd. of Calgary, Alberta.

The Chapman Report estimated recoverable bitumen volumes of 13 MMSTB in the Low Case (Worst Case scenario) (20.2 MMSTB in place), 20 MMSTB in the Best Case (30.4 MMSTB in place), and 30 MMSTB in the High Case (55.6 MMSTB in place.) A recent core sample from the Asphalt Ridge sandstone structure has a published analysis of 13.4 percent bitumen content with an API gravity of 14.3. Over 90 percent of the lease geology has been confirmed and estimates of the approximate resource size/overburden are based on published information and publicly-available data, including reports from the USDOE.

The Chapman evaluation also indicated a reasonable level of production costs on the lease utilizing MCW’s proprietary oil sands extraction technology, with costs estimated to be in the range of 30.25 USD per barrel, based on the minimum daily production range of 250 barrels a day from the Company’s first oil extraction plant.

MCW is currently working with Chapman Petroleum Engineering to incorporate its current evaluation into its NI 51-101 documentation which will be issued upon completion. When this step is completed, the Company will apply for an additional listing on a Canadian Stock Exchange.
