Increased Production from the Haldimand 1 Well

Press release - Rimouski, February 6, 2012: Pétrolia (TSXV: PEA) is pleased to confirm that it has successfully completed the injectivity test at Haldimand No.1 well. Designed to measure the rock’s mechanical properties, the test has also enabled Pétrolia to boost the well’s production from 10 to 40 barrels per day. The increase confirms that the production from the field is supported by a network of natural fractures present in the reservoir and that, as a result, it is important to optimize the trajectory for the next well. That trajectory will make it possible to intercept the greatest possible number of natural fracture zones in the reservoir and maximize production. The result can also be interpreted as a correction to the damage to the well, resulting from the injectivity test.
