Eaglewood Energy Announces Closing of Horizon Farmout

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 11, 2012) - Eaglewood Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:EWD) ("Eaglewood") is pleased to announce that it has completed all the conditions precedent and received all the government approvals required to complete the farmout of 25% of PPL 259 to Ketu Petroleum Ltd, a wholly owned subsidiary of Horizon Oil Ltd ("Horizon"). At completion Horizon will pay Eaglewood approximately USD $2.5mm for sunk costs, fund their 25% interest of the seismic program currently underway on the license as well as funding of the first USD $1.375mm of Eaglewood's seismic costs. When the next PPL 259 exploration well is drilled, expected in Q4 of this year, Horizon will fund their 25% interest and pay USD $5.0mm of Eaglewood's drilling costs. With the Horizon transaction completed, Eaglewood can now lodge the appropriate documentation with the regulators to begin the regulatory approval process to complete the previously announced farmout of an additional 25% of PPL 259 to Mega Fortune International ("Mega").

CEO Brad Hurtubise commented "We are very pleased to have Horizon as a partner in PPL 259 as they bring a wealth of experience and information to the PPL 259 joint venture. With this deal closed we can begin in earnest the process to get the Mega deal closed, which will likely take a few months. With both transactions closed, our phase one and two seismic programs and our next well will be fully funded. We can use our remaining cash balance to further the unitisation discussions with the PRL 4 Joint Venture or to pursue additional exploration activities on our 100% owned PPL 257."

Eaglewood is a junior Canadian oil and gas exploration company that trades on the TSX Venture Exchange under the symbol "EWD".
