BYSD Participating in Well Re-Completion in the Woodford Shale Formation in Bryan County, Oklahoma

DALLAS, TX--(Marketwire - February 19, 2010) - BAYSIDE PETROLEUM COMPANY, INC. (PINKSHEETS: BYSD) is pleased to announce that testing will commence shortly on a well re-completion in the prolific Woodford Shale formation in Bryan County, Oklahoma. Bayside will hold a 46% interest in the well. The Company expects to commence the re-completion work by month-end.

THE PROLIFIC WOODFORD SHALE

"With enough oil and gas to potentially become a major unconventional hydrocarbon reservoir, the Woodford is a viable play"... John B. Comer, Indiana Geological Survey, Bloomington, Indiana. Mr. Comer explains that the Woodford Shale is an attractive target for unconventional oil and gas development because it is a mature source rock that is widely distributed throughout the southern midcontinent, and because it locally produces oil and gas from naturally fractured intervals in conventionally completed wells. Estimates indicate that as much as 85% of the oil produced in central and southern Oklahoma originated in the Woodford. Oklahoma has long been one of the country's major petroleum producing states.

New technology has brought the prolific Woodford Shale into the Oil & Gas exploration spotlight in recent years and Bayside and its partners are looking forward to carrying out this important test.
