Anglo Canadian Oil Corp. Operations Update

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 15, 2011) - Anglo Canadian Oil Corp. ("Anglo" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:ACG) is in the final stages of licensing two wells in its Kindersley/Dodsland area of South West Saskatchewan. Targeting both the Bakken and Mannville formations, these potential oil wells are expected to spud in early summer, pending the necessary approval and equipment availability. With the successful outcome of these wells, a 3-D seismic survey will be conducted upon which a horizontal drilling program will be implemented.

Anglo is also pleased to announce that at recent Alberta Crown sales it has purchased an additional 86,144 acres (34,456 ha) of petroleum and natural gas mineral rights. These lands principally target oil prone formations in Central Alberta, both from conventional reservoirs and source rock formations.

Geological and geophysical work on the Nordegg, including 2-D seismic interpretation covering the Southerly portion of Anglo's Nordegg lands is nearly complete and indicates a number of potential drilling locations. Anglo expects to initiate the licensing of two to three wells when potential locations can be scouted for access. The later than normal winter break-up coupled with a heavy snow pack may delay the expected spudding of these wells into late summer.

The Nordegg play has seen a continued increasing interest from other players, with at least seven new horizontal wells in the area being recently licensed into the Fernie group, which includes the "Nordegg Member".

Comprehensive analysis of the Nordegg core has shown where possible improvements might be made in the completion treatment of the Nordegg formation. After winter breakup Anglo intends to recomplete the Sturgeon Lk. South 5-10 well utilizing the findings from the core testing.

Anglo is a Calgary, Alberta based corporation engaged in the exploration, development and production of petroleum and natural gas. The Common Shares are listed on the TSX Venture Exchange under the trading symbol "ACG".
