Greenfields Petroleum Corporation ("Greenfields" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:GNF) is pleased to announce that it has completed the private placement previously announced on June 13, 2017 (the "Offering").

In connection with the Offering, the Company issued 18,258,201 common shares of the Company ("Common Shares"), at a price of USD$0.1485 per Common Share (approximately CDN$0.20 per Common Share based on the Bank of Canada daily exchange rate on May 30, 2017 of $1.00 USD = $1.3468 CDN), for aggregate gross proceeds of USD$2,711,343 (approximately CDN$3,651,640). The Common Shares issued under the Offering are subject to a four-month hold period expiring on October 28, 2017. The Offering is subject to the approval of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange"). The Offering was conducted through Mirabaud Securities LLP as agent for the Company in respect of certain subscribers.

Vitol Energy (Bermuda) Ltd. ("Vitol") and Ingalls & Snyder LLC ("I&S") hold Common Share purchase warrants ("Warrants"), which vest in the event of a dilutive issuance of securities by the Company. Vitol and I&S have waived their vesting rights such that the Offering will not cause any of the Warrants to vest.

John W. Harkins, CEO of Greenfields, stated: "We are pleased with the continued support of our investors, as it ensures that Greenfields will complete its static and dynamic modelling for the revised Plan of Development of the two fields due at the end of summer in 2017. We remain optimistic that these plans will recognize additional secondary recovery potential in the oil reservoirs. Additionally, the proceeds of this private placement will allow us to accelerate the gas well recompletions in the Bahar field and the installation of electric submersible pumps in existing oil wells in the Gum Deniz oil field."

The Company also announces that it has agreed to issue an aggregate of 2,291,801 Common Shares to certain employees and consultants of the Company in satisfaction of compensation payable to such employees and consultants in the aggregate amount of USD$340,333 (CDN$458,360) (the "Debt Settlement").
