Foothills Exploration, Inc. Announces Formal Launch of Exploration Division

Opens New Division Office in Houston

DENVER, CO--(Marketwired - October 05, 2016) - Foothills Exploration, Inc. (OTCQB: FTXP) (the "Company" or "FTXP"), an independent oil and gas exploration company engaged in the acquisition and development of oil and natural gas properties in the Rockies and Gulf Coast, announced today the formal launch of its Exploration Division and opening of a new office to support division staff in Houston, Texas.

"The Company's Exploration Division seeks to build a portfolio of world class exploration projects in the Gulf coast region both onshore and offshore to complement our activities in the Rockies," said B.P. Allaire, Chief Executive Officer of the Company. "Our recent hires, Ritchie Lanclos, Executive Vice President of Exploration and Eleazar Ovalle, Executive Vice President of Geology & Geophysical, will be the senior officers heading this new division," explained Mr. Allaire "and through their applied expertise we intend to increase our capabilities in identifying and developing oil and gas resources in the Gulf Coast," he added.

The executives leading the Company's Exploration Division are industry recognized experts who have developed a proprietary exploration methodology based on leading edge technology, which the Company believes may mitigate geologic risk and can deliver high impact, high reward exploration prospects. This proprietary approach involves an algorithm based model that employs AVO seismic expertise, sub-salt modeling techniques and the analysis of hydrocarbon migration pathways to super charged oil accumulations and proven petroleum systems.

The Division's executive management team has made prolific discoveries both onshore and offshore, and has expertise in the commercial exploration and development evaluations in sub-salt deepwater Gulf of Mexico, the application of economic risk modeling and extensive knowledge of regional geologic trend analogs applied to salt modeling.

These statements are based on certain assumptions we made based on management's experience, perception of historical trends and technical analyses, current conditions, capital plans, drilling plans, production expectations, our abilities to raise adequate additional capital to support our acquisition, development and drilling activities, anticipated future developments, and other factors believed to be appropriate and reasonable by management. When used in this release, words such as "will," "potential," "believe," "estimate," "intend," "expect," "may," "should," "anticipate," "could," "plan," "predict," "project," "profile," "model," "strategy," "future" or their negatives or the statements that include these words or other words that convey the uncertainty of future events or outcomes, are intended to identify forward-looking statements, although not all forward-looking statements contain such identifying words. In particular, statements, express or implied, concerning our future operating results and returns or our ability to acquire or develop proven or probable reserves, our ability to replace or increase reserves, increase production, or generate income or cash flows are forward-looking statements.
