FieldPoint Petroleum And Industry Partners Begin Drilling In Goliad County, Texas - FPP Also Plans Two More Horizontal Wells In Lea County, New Mexico This Year.

AUSTIN, Texas, May 13, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (NYSE/MKT: FPP) announced today that, with its industry partners, drilling has begun on the Irby #1 vertical Wilcox test well that will be drilled to a depth of approximately 8,900 feet to the prospective reservoir.  If successful, the well should be drilled and completed within the next 60 to 90 days and FPP will own a 10% working interest in the well.

FPP also announced that it has signed an operating agreement with Cimarex Energy Co, to drill a third horizontal well that will target the Bone Spring formation on its East Lusk Federal Section 15 property located in Lea County, New Mexico.    If successful, there is the possibility of drilling a fourth well on this property by the end of the year. Total cost for each well will be approximately $7,000,000.

This third horizontal well is proposed to be drilled vertically to a depth of approximately 9,500 feet to the Bone Spring formation and laterally in a westerly direction within the formation to the bottom hole location.  Total measured depth of the well is proposed to be approximately 14,000 feet. Drilling is expected to begin in the first part of July.

FieldPoint will own 43.75% working interest, Cimarex will own 37.5%, and other partners will own the remaining 18.75% working interest in our third Lea County, New Mexico well.

FieldPoint's President and CEO, Ray Reaves stated, "If successful, this drilling program could further serve to significantly increase our daily production and proved reserve base.  Starting now, it's our goal to drill 2 or 3 wells per year for the next five years and we will do everything possible to achieve this goal."
