Contango Oil & Gas Company announced that Alta Energy had recently signed a contract to sell its interest in over 67,000 acres in the Kaybob Duvernay in Alberta, Canada. Proceeds from the sale are expected to be approximately $29 million, net to the Company. The sale is expected to close in October after satisfaction of a number of closing conditions.

Joseph J. Romano, the Company's Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, said, "Alta Resources and its Chairman, Joseph Greenberg, have again been very successful in developing a major new resource and the Company is fortunate to be an early investor in this venture. The Company expects to use its net proceeds from the sale to further pay down indebtedness of the Company following our merger with Crimson Exploration which we hope to close in early October."

Mr. Romano continued, "We continue to make great progress with our merger plans with Crimson Exploration and have recently filed responses to comments provided by the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission to the draft Joint Proxy Statement previously filed with the Commission."
