Ithaca Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:IAE)(AIM:IAE) announces that the J03 well on the
Jacky field ("the well") has been suspended having encountered a smaller than
anticipated oil column in the Beatrice 'A' Sand reservoir. Given the result of
the well, technical work is ongoing to determine whether to re-enter the well
and complete it as a water injector to maximise oil recovery from the Jacky
field.


Meanwhile, the drilling unit for the J03 well, Northern Enhancer, currently
located over the Jacky platform, will commence a workover operation to replace
downhole pumps in the J01 production well. This operation is estimated to last
approximately 15 days.

PhD Hydrogeology (London) and senior petroleum engineer at Ithaca Energy is the
qualified person that has reviewed the technical information contained in this
press release. Dr Morel has 30 years operating experience in the upstream oil
industry.
