Norstra Enters Bakken Oil Boom

Stocks in this article: NORX

LAREDO, Texas, March 18, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NORSTRA ENERGY INC. ("Norstra" or the "Company"), (OTCQB:NORX) is pleased to announce that it has entered into a farm-out agreement with Summit West Oil, LLC. for the South Sun River Bakken Prospect.

The South Sun River Prospect was identified by the Company's management as an excellent target for a Bakken well. It consists of over 10,000 acres of prime Bakken acreage with almost 10 years left on most of the leases. Bakken development is considered simple and basic horizontal drilling. Under the Farm Out Agreement Norstra will provide $200,000 for short term working capital and drill and complete a first well into the Bakken Oil Formation by December 31, 2013; a second well into the Bakken Oil Formation by June 30, 2014 and drill and complete a third well into the Bakken Oil Formation by December 31, 2014. Upon completion of these drilling obligations, Norstra shall have earned 100% working interest in the entire acreage constituting the farm-out land. In the event that Norstra only completes the first and/or the first and second well, but elects not to proceed with the second and/or third well, Norstra will earn the above mentioned working interests only on the spacing unit on which well(s) have been drilled.

The Company's CEO, Mr. Glen Landry is a seasoned, third generation geologist who has spent 30 years exploring for oil and gas with a focus in Montana and North Dakota since 1980. Historical seismic, exploration and drilling records, some of which Mr. Landry was personally involved in, have been reviewed by the Company. The historical work was focused exclusively on deeper oil formations as the Bakken was not a commercially accessible oil formation at the time due to horizontal drilling and fracking technologies not being available. The technological revolution in the oil service industry has changed this. The sizable data provided through this existing historical logging and seismic work that covered the Bakken potential is now proving invaluable and during the last five years Mr. Landry spent significant time evaluating the Bakken Oil Formation in Montana and North Dakota.
