BPZ Energy Announces 2008 SEC Reserves; Provides Operations Update


Houston---February 5, 2009---BPZ Resources, Inc. (NYSE Alternext US: BPZ) today announced that its total net proved reserves as of December 31, 2008 consisted of 17.1 million barrels of crude oil (Mmbo).  The reserves report was prepared under the rules of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) by the independent reserve engineering firm Netherland Sewell and Associates, Inc. (NSAI) covering a portion of the Company’s Block Z-1 Corvina offshore field located in northwest Peru.  This is approximately a 44% increase over the Company’s proved reserves reported as of December 31, 2007.  The report also estimates the present value of the future net cash flows of the Company’s proved oil and gas reserves at the end of 2008, using a discount rate of 10% (PV-10) and a referential oil price of $37.80.  The Company’s reserves categorized by proved developed producing and proved undeveloped and associated Standardized Measure of future net cash flow are set forth below:

The Company previously announced the oil reserves from the Corvina field as of December 31, 2008, were approximately 25 million barrels of crude oil based on definitions and guidelines set forth in the 1997 Petroleum Resources Management System approved by the Society of Petroleum Engineers (SPE), which also constituted an approximate increase of 40% against the prior year estimates using the same SPE guidlines.  The primary difference between SPE and SEC oil reserve estimates is the number of proved undeveloped locations permitted under the respective guidelines for each well that has been completed.  The credit facility currently under negotiation is based on Corvina oil reserves using the SPE estimates as mandated by the bank.  The Corvina field requires 14 wells to drain the corresponding proved reserves under the guidelines set forth by the SEC, while under the SPE guidelines for Corvina the larger proved area requires a total of 20 wells to drain the corresponding proved reserves.
