Jura Extends Date for Reorganization and Recapitalization

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - April 1, 2012) - Jura Energy Corporation ("Jura") (TSX:JEC) announced today that on March 30, 2012 Jura entered into an amending agreement with respect to the acquisition agreement dated November 23, 2011 between Jura and Eastern Petroleum Limited (as amended on February 28, 2012, the "Acquisition Agreement"). Pursuant to the amendment, the outside date for completion of the transactions contemplated in the Acquisition Agreement (the "Transactions") has been extended to April 30, 2012.

Closing of the Transactions remains subject to satisfaction of all other conditions precedent to closing, including obtaining conditional listing approval of the Jura common shares (on a 10 for one consolidated basis) to be issued in connection with the Transactions on a Canadian stock exchange, and approval from the Director General of Petroleum Concessions in Pakistan ("DGPC") to approve the Acquisition, both of which are in progress.
