Index Oil and Gas Inc. Signs Letter of Intent On Shadyside Prospect

Index Oil and Gas, Inc. , announced that the Company, via its wholly owned Index Offshore LLC subsidiary, has signed a letter of intent to participate in the first exploration well in the Shadyside prospect, a highly significant opportunity for Index.

On February 7, 2007, Index signed the Letter of Intent anticipating the Company’s participation in the Shadyside Prospect, located in St. Mary Parish, Louisiana. Subject to the parties entering into mutually acceptable definitive agreements covering the Shadyside prospect, Index will have an initial 15% working interest in the first exploration well, reduced to a 13.5% working interest, after payout.

This first well will be drilled during the first half of 2007 with a planned total depth of approximately 16,500 feet. This well will target multiple Miocene gas reservoirs in the bottom 1,500 feet of the well. These reservoirs have produced significant quantities of gas from the nearby Garden City Field.

Index is pleased to have the opportunity to participate in the Shadyside prospect, the Company’s most significant well to date. Index expects to release further information on the prospect in the event that the Company enters into the formal exploration agreement contemplated by the Letter of Intent announced today.
