Cabo Signs Lease Agreement with London & Regional (Panama) S.A.

North Vancouver, BC – Cabo Drilling (Panama) Corp., a wholly owned subsidiary, of Cabo Drilling Corp.’s (TSX-V: CBE) (“Cabo” or the “Company”) has entered into a lease agreement with London & Regional (Panama) S.A., Managers of the Panama Pacifico project in the Republic of Panama.  The lease will provide immediate premises for Cabo’s Panama division, in an existing structure and new premises, upon completion of its offices in the new International Business Park.  Ground breaking for the business park is planned for November 2008.

The 2,750 hectare Panama Pacifico project is strategically located directly across from Panama City on the old US Howard Air Force Base and overlooks both the Panama Canal and the Pacific Ocean.  The project Master Plan calls for redevelopment, over the next 40 years, of what was once home to 10,000 military personnel, into an entire new city district within a tropical setting of lush forest and hills.  Panama Pacifico is targeted to become “…the newest city in Central America.  A place you will want to work, live, visit, vacation and enjoy!”

Cabo is pleased to find its place alongside neighbors like MEC Repairs, Dell Panama, the Red Cross, Caterpillar, Singapore Airlines and 3M who are also residents of the new global business hub within the Panama Pacifico Master Plan.  Along with the expansion for the new city being built by London & Regional, there are also the advantages of an airport within walking distance, duty free zones, gated community, tax, immigration and labor incentives created for the Panama Pacifico project.

Cabo is building an increasing presence in Panama with a larger than 50% growth rate since January of this year.  It enjoys the benefits of being a good corporate citizen in the Republic of Panama and is seeing positive results from offering better than average employment opportunities in Panama.  The Company is beginning to see the benefits of training a local workforce.

“These are exciting times for our Company” comments Herb Butler, Operations Manager for Cabo in Panama,  “Not only does this solidify our position in Panama but it gives us great access to the rest of Latin America.”
