Greenfields Petroleum Corporation Engages CHF Investor Relations

HOUSTON, TEXAS--(Marketwire - Feb. 6, 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) today announced that it has retained CHF Investor Relations ("CHF"), a Toronto-based investor relations firm. CHF will provide Greenfields with introductions to market participants, including brokers, analysts and investment groups, and will assist the Company with shareholder communications, primarily in Canada. In addition, CHF agrees to initiate its Market Liquidity Program, more commonly referred to as "market-making", through its Calgary office.

Pursuant to the terms of the investor relations and market-making services agreement (the "Agreement") dated January 27, 2012, between Greenfields and CHF, CHF will be paid a monthly fee of $7,500 by Greenfields and, once options become available under the Company's Stock Option Plan (the "Plan"), CHF will be awarded 150,000 stock options to purchase common shares of the Company (the "Options"), at a price to be determined at that future date in accordance with the policies of the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange") and the Company's Plan.

In accordance with Exchange policies, the Options will vest over a 12 month period in equal quarterly tranches. The Agreement is for a twelve-month term, starting on February 1, 2012, with an option to renew the contract for an additional twelve months.

The market-making activity will be conducted using a registered broker in compliance with Policy 3.4 of the TSX Venture Exchange Corporate Finance Manual (the "Manual"), IIROC's Universal Market Integrity Rules & Policies (2010) and other relevant policies, so that trading orders in Greenfields's shares are made to manage share price volatility and imbalances of orders in order to improve trading liquidity on the exchange. In accordance with Policy 3.4, section 2.8 of the Manual that states in part "an Issuer may not use its own funds, or provide direct or indirect compensation to other parties to undertake a market-making function in its securities," the Company and CHF confirm that capital for the purposes of market-making has not and will not be provided from the Company's treasury.

CHF is at arm's length to Greenfields and other than as described above does not own any shares of Greenfields.

The Agreement and the award of Options are subject to TSX Venture Exchange approval.
