Hemisphere Energy Announces Closing of Wainwright Property Acquisition

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Feb. 28, 2011) - Hemisphere Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HME) is pleased to announce that it has closed the acquisition of the producing property in the Wainwright area of southeastern Alberta. The property includes 435 net acres of land and 68.75% of one producing Colony formation natural gas well. The well has a current production rate of approximately 175 mcf/d (29 boe/d) gross or 120 mcf/d (20 boe/d) net to the company.

The Wainwright property acquisition is aligned with Hemisphere's strategy of focusing on building and developing core areas with multiple zones of potential that provide low to medium risk drilling opportunities to increase Hemisphere Energy's production, reserves and cash flow.

Hemisphere Energy's management and board view the Wainwright acquisition as an excellent project to complement the Company's activities in the Jenner area of southeastern Alberta and its producing properties in Sylvan Lake, Alberta and Trutch, British Columbia.
