Manas Petroleum Corporation (OTCBB:MNAP) ("Manas" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it has filed a registration statement on Form S-1 with the Securities and Exchange Commission and a Preliminary Prospectus with the securities commissions in all of the provinces of Canada except Quebec, for a proposed public offering of common shares ("Common Shares") to raise a minimum of $20,000,000 and a maximum of $30,000,000 at a price per Common Share to be determined closer to the closing date of the offering, which has yet to be scheduled.

The Company has entered into an engagement letter with Raymond James Ltd. in which Raymond James Ltd. has agreed to act as lead agent in the offering on a "reasonable commercial efforts" agency basis. The Company has granted to Raymond James Ltd. an over-allotment option, exercisable for a period of 30 days from the closing of the Offering, to place such number of Common Shares as is equal to 15% of the Common Shares sold in the Offering on the same terms as the Offering.

The Offering is subject to certain conditions, including completion of a due diligence review by the agent, the listing of the Common Shares on the TSX Venture Exchange, regulatory approvals and final, formal documentation.

The Company hopes to close the Offering in late March or early April of 2011, and it intends to use the net proceeds of the Offering to fund its exploration and development programs in Mongolia, for working capital and general corporate purposes.
