Denver 1700 hours May 8, Perth 0700 hours MAY 9, 2008
Samson Oil & Gas has executed and settled a Purchase and Sale Agreement with Kaiser-Francis Anadarko
Limited Partnership in relation to its properties located in the Amber field in Grady County, Oklahoma for
US$4.76 million. Samson had a 37.5% and 32.5% working interest in 1,280 acres with 9 producing wells.
Samson disposed of the field as it had limited growth potential in the near term, with no drilling currently planned.
Samson will use US$2.94 million of the proceeds to repay a portion of its outstanding convertible note facility
with Macqaurie Bank Limited and US$60,000 to unwind 50,000 mmbtu of its $6.03 forward swap from January
2009 to October 2009.
Terry Barr, Samson's Managing Director and CEO, stated, "We chose to dispose of the Amber field because,
with no drilling planned, it held little prospect for growth. With the sale, we have reduced our debt and increased
our capacity to invest in new developmental and exploratory drilling programs."
