BNK Petroleum Inc. Announces Sale Of Woodford Assets; Accelerates Drilling In BNK's Caney Formation

TSX ticker symbol; BKX

CAMARILLO, CA, March 17, 2013 /PRNewswire/ - BNK Petroleum Inc. (the " Company") (TSX: BKX) is pleased to announce that its indirect wholly owned subsidiary BNK Petroleum (US) Inc. ("BNK US") has entered into a Purchase and Sale Agreement with XTO Energy Inc. ("XTO"), a subsidiary of Exxon Mobil Corporation, for the sale by BNK US of its Tishomingo Field, Oklahoma assets other than the Caney and upper Sycamore formations, for US$147.5 million, subject to customary closing adjustments.

Subject to completion of customary conditions, the transaction is expected to close in late April.  If the transaction is completed, the proceeds of the sale are expected to be used to accelerate the drilling of Caney wells in the Tishomingo field, the Company's ongoing exploration efforts in Europe and for repayment of the Company's credit facility.

Wolf Regener BNK's President and CEO, stated:  "We are very pleased to announce this transaction, which is the culmination of the Company's efforts to maximize the value of our Woodford shale gas assets.  The transaction is also structured to preserve our rights in the relatively undeveloped Caney and Upper Sycamore formations in the Tishomingo Field.   We believe these intervals represent a promising opportunity to develop new oil reserves and production, in an area in which we have a successful operating history.  If completed, this transaction will provide the Company with sufficient funds to accelerate our planned Caney development and flexibility to pursue our exciting European projects on our own or with partners."

Macquarie Capital Markets Canada Ltd. is the lead financial advisor to the Company in connection with this transaction, and has delivered an opinion to the Company's board of directors that, as of the date hereof and based upon and subject to the assumptions, limitations and qualifications set forth in the opinion, the consideration to be received by the Company pursuant to the transaction is fair, from a financial point of view, to the Company.
