Brownstone Energy Provides Update on Operations in Colombia

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - July 20, 2011) - Brownstone Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:BWN) ("Brownstone") is pleased to provide the following update on operations in Colombia.

Canaguaro Block, Llanos Basin

Brownstone has been advised by the operator of the Canaguaro Block the long term production testing of Canaguay #1 is continuing with the well currently producing approximately 500 barrels of oil and 150 barrels of water. The optimal production rate for the Mirador reservoir and facilities will be determined by the results of the long term production test. Brownstone has met its obligations to earn its 25% working interest in the Canaguaro Block.

Block 27, Llanos Basin

Brownstone has been advised that a follow-up 54 square kilometer 3D seismic acquisition program has been completed in the south eastern portion of the block, and is currently being interpreted. The operator has defined drilling locations on three separate Block 27 structures, based on the interpretation of 3D seismic and potential follow-up development drilling locations have been identified on several of these structures. Interpretation of the 3D seismic is continuing and several additional geological features are being studied as potential drilling locations.

Lengthy delays in the issuing of block environmental permits continue to adversely effect the operations of both large and small oil companies in Colombia. The operator and Brownstone have waited approximately 8 months for the Block 27 environmental permit. It is anticipated that permit will be granted during the 3rd quarter of 2011. Construction of drilling locations is scheduled to begin as soon as the required environmental permit is received. A two to three well drilling program is planned to commence approximately one month after location construction begins. The wells have a planned depth of approximately 10,000 feet and will test prospective oil bearing intervals in the Carbonera, Mirador and Une Formations.
