Hemisphere Energy Acquires Jenner Oil Property

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - March 16, 2011) - Hemisphere Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HME) is pleased to announce an agreement to acquire an oil producing property in the Jenner area of southeastern Alberta for $1.1 Million.

The Jenner property produces approximately 25 barrels of oil per day and includes the five sections of land Hemisphere previously announced in a farm-in agreement on November 23, 2010. The acquisition is expected to be completed on or before March 28, 2011.

The Jenner acquisition is strategically aligned with Hemisphere's focus on oil production growth in southeast Alberta by developing core areas with multiple zones of potential that provide low to medium risk drilling opportunities that will increase Hemisphere's production, reserves and cash flow.

Acquiring the Jenner property enables Hemisphere to control the development and exploration of the land base in the area. The wellbores and facilities included on the Jenner property are of strategic value to Hemisphere going forward with its plans to grow production in southeast Alberta.
