HOUSTON, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Feb. 29, 2012) -

NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO U.S. NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES. ANY FAILURE TO COMPLY WITH THIS RESTRICTION MAY CONSTITUTE A VIOLATION OF U.S. SECURITIES LAWS.

Greenfields Petroleum Corporation ("Greenfields" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GNF) is pleased to announce that all of the holders of the 530,000 share purchase warrants to acquire Greenfields' common stock at a price of CDN$5.00 per share (the "Warrants") have exercised all of their Warrants. As a result of the exercise of the Warrants, Greenfields raised CDN$2,650,000 (about US$2,655,000 at today's exchange rate).

The Warrants were issued two years ago on February 24, 2010 as a part of a private placement of units by Greenfields when Greenfields was still a private company.

Greenfields intends to use the proceeds from the exercise of the Warrants to fund its development program in Azerbaijan, as well as for general corporate purposes.
