Kenartha Oil and Gas Company Limited to Commence Payments to Warrant Purchasers (May 8, 2008)

Toronto, Ontario- Kenartha Oil and Gas Company Limited (Frankfurt Exchange-KJ5), is a junior natural resource exploration and producer of natural gas (“NG”) in southern Ontario, Canada. The Company has in production three (3) NG Wells (100% owned) in Wellington Township, Ontario, and is funding a planned thirty (30) wells exploration drilling programs in Norfolk-Haldimand County, Ontario to earn a 49% working interest in the NG Wells drilled.

In the Norfolk-Haldimand County play, the majority interest (51%) holder is a private entity that is the designated Operator for the programs. Agreements are in place with Union Gas to establish two (2) Meter Stations to receive NG and to purchase all NG delivered to these Meter Stations.

The Operator reports that Union Gas completed and commissioned the 1st Meter Station in late 2007 and the 2nd Meter station on April 25, 2008. Currently there are twelve (12) Wells delivering NG to Union Gas, of which seven (7) are delivering to the 1st Meter Station and five (5) delivering to the 2nd Meter Station. All twelve Wells are in an initial production cycle, which primarily consists of the periodic purging of the formation liquids and the regulating of operating pressures. The Operator is of the opinion that the continual adjusting and tweaking of these Wells is necessary to achieve the best flow rates and thereby maximize the Wells’ production life.

Additionally, the Operator has executed a contract with the pipeline contractor to install the next path of collection pipelines with an estimated completion date of June end, 2008. This will allow the balance of the initial program of fifteen (15) Wells to be placed on production and some of the Wells in the second program.

The Company has a “Pay-Back” clause in the agreement with the Operator that entitles the Company to receive 100% of the net profits generated from the production to recapture all of the funds supplied to drill the Wells. The Investors warrants state the Company will pass Pay-Back funds to the warrant purchasers at an amount equivalent to their investment of the initial Units purchased before their net profit interest royalty payments commence. Accordingly, Pay-Back funds to cover the period up to March end, 2008 are being calculated for distribution.

In October 2007, the Company concluded that its opportunities to participate in small hydro-electric generating projects in the country of Brazil had deteriorated and thus has cancelled pursuing these ventures.
