Alexander Energy Ltd. Announces a New Potential Detrital Sand Oilwell at 7-7-56-26W4 and the Spudding of a Step-Out Well at 12-12-56-27W4

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - March 19, 2013) - Alexander Energy Ltd. (TSX VENTURE:ALX), ("Alexander" or the "Company") announces that it has drilled and cased the 03/7-7-56-26W4 development well as a potential Detrital sand oilwell. The Company is operator and has a 79 percent working interest in the well. The well is an easterly step-out in the Company's Detrital C oilpool.

The Company will immediately complete and test the well. It is anticipated that the well will be tied-in to our existing gathering system, with production expected to commence in April, 2013.

On March 18, 2013 the Company spud the 12-12-56-27W4 well. The well is a westerly step-out targeting the Detrital C oilpool. Drilling is expected to take 6 days.

Forward-Looking Statements: All statements, other than statements of historical fact, set forth in this news release, including without limitation, assumptions and statements regarding the volumes and estimated value of the Company's proved and probable reserves, future production rates, exploration and development results, financial results, and future plans, operations and objectives of the Company are forward-looking statements that involve substantial known and unknown risks and uncertainties.

The reader is cautioned that assumptions used in the preparation of such information, although considered reasonable by the Company at the time of preparation, may prove to be incorrect. There can be no assurance that such statements will prove to be accurate and actual results and future events could differ materially from those anticipated in such statements.

These assumptions and statements necessarily involve known and unknown risks and uncertainties inherent in the oil and gas industry such as geological, technical, drilling and processing problems and other risks and uncertainties, as well as the business risks discussed in Management's Discussion and Analysis of the Company under the heading "Business Risks". The Company does not undertake any obligation, except as required by applicable securities legislation, to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Barrels of oil equivalent (boe) is calculated using the conversion factor of 6 mcf (thousand cubic feet) of natural gas being equivalent to one barrel of oil. Boes may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 mcf:1 bbl (barrel) is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6:1, utilizing a conversion on a 6:1 basis may be misleading as an indication of value.
