BNK Petroleum Inc. Provides Corporate Update

TSX ticker symbol; BKX

CAMARILLO, CA, Jan. 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - BNK Petroleum Inc. (the " Company") (TSX: BKX) provides the following update on its operations in Poland and Oklahoma.

Oklahoma

The exploration horizontal Barnes 6-2H well operated by the Company's US subsidiary BNK Petroleum, (US) Inc. (BNKUS) in its Tishomingo field in Oklahoma, is still being tested with very encouraging results.  The 21 day stabilized pumping production rate from the Lower Caney and Upper Sycamore (Mississippian Lime equivalent) formations was 180 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day with 70 percent of the production being oil.  As stated in previous press releases, the horizontal section was completed in both the Sycamore and lower members of the Caney formation. The testing results of the individual zones is designed to help optimize placement of laterals in future wells.

To determine which interval is producing the majority of the oil, packers were set in selected sections of the lateral to isolate the various horizons and conduct individual tests.  The testing continues, as the individual tests are producing at higher flush rates than expected.  For instance the Sycamore interval alone tested 140 barrels of fluid a day with 70% being oil and the balance being frac fluid that is still being recovered.  The tests in the select Caney intervals are currently inconclusive because they are flowing clean oil at rates of 200 barrels of oil per day ("BOPD").

This is providing good evidence that higher proppant concentrations and potentially more frac stages will further increase the productivity of these zones in future wells. Based on testing results to date, it is anticipated that future wells will include optimized frac stage spacing, much higher proppant concentrations, analogous to other successful shale oil projects, and 20% longer lateral lengths than this well while targeting the most productive interval.  These optimizations are expected to further improve on the anticipated production rates and potential overall reserve recoveries in future wells targeting these zones.
