Update on Petrosibir Shelton Plan of Arrangement

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 1, 2009) -


Petrosibir AB ("Petrosibir"), a Swedish public company listed on the Nordic Growth Market in Stockholm, Sweden (PETS) and Shelton Canada Corp. ("Shelton"), a Canadian public company listed on the TSX Venture Exchange (TSX-V) in Canada (TSX VENTURE:STO) announce that since the announcement concerning the intended business combination, Petrosibir and Shelton have conducted visits of each other's operations in Russia and Ukraine, respectively, and taken several steps to complete the plan of arrangement. Petrosibir and Shelton are very satisfied with the increased knowledge that has been gathered about the companies' licenses and operations. Shelton intends to hold an annual and special meeting of shareholders on November 6, 2009.

Since the announcement of July 15, 2009 on the intended business combination of Petrosibir and Shelton, both companies have been intensively engaged in finalizing their due diligence, obtaining a fairness opinion for Shelton shareholders, obtaining a technical report (NI 51-101 Report) for Petrosibir and preparing the Information Circular to be disseminated to Shelton shareholders in connection with the Shelton annual and special meeting of shareholders.

The date for the Shelton annual and special meeting of shareholders has been tentatively set for November 6, 2009. This is later than the schedule indicated previously, due to the fact that the formal documentation requirements have been expanded to include a technical report. At this annual and special shareholders' meeting, Shelton shareholders will have the opportunity to vote on the Plan of Arrangement, which, if approved, will result in Shelton becoming a wholly-owned subsidiary of Petrosibir via the exchange of Shelton shares for new Petrosibir shares. Petrosibir's management and directors have begun preliminary work to list the new Petrosibir shares on the TSX Venture Exchange in Canada. Prior to the annual and special meeting of shareholders and once the Information Circular and due diligence process are complete, the companies will jointly apply to the Court of Queen's Bench of Alberta, Canada, for approval of the Plan of Arrangement.

Following the completion of the plan of arrangement, Petrosibir AB intends to change its name to Shelton Petroleum AB.
