Lavoy Area Production Update

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Sept. 27, 2011) - Sunridge Energy Corp. (TSX VENTURE:SRG) ("Sunridge" or the "Company") is pleased to announce a production update on its hydrocarbon assets (the "Assets") located in the Lavoy area of north central Alberta. The Assets consist of a 100% Crown lease working interest with well facilities and pipelines, acquired from Silver Peak Industries Ltd ("Silverpeak") earlier in the year as part of the Company's qualifying transaction.

Key Point Summary

  • Production update on the first of three Lavoy area wells
  • Present natural gas production of 900 MCF/d (90 Barrels of Oil Equivalent Per Day *)
  • Production is 100% higher than initial engineered expectations
  • Lavoy property has multi zone horizons
  • Capital expenditures in-line with budgeted costs on multi-well workover and optimization program

Production commenced on the first of three wells in the Lavoy area, which is currently producing 900 MCF/d (90 Barrels of Oil Equivalent per Day *). This production rate significantly exceeds 400 MCF/d, the initial engineered expectation from all three wells and used in the valuation of the Assets when acquired by Sunridge (Chapman Petroleum Engineering Ltd.; Reserve & Economic Evaluation - June 2010). The Assets were acquired from Silverpeak, a private Alberta corporation owned and controlled by the Company's President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Dwayne Tyrkalo as part of its qualifying transaction completed in February 2011. Capital expenditures were in-line with budgeted costs on the multi-well workover and optimization program completed.

The Lavoy property is on a seismic high with multi zone gas potential and the Company plans to further investigate these stacked gas zones.

"The success of our first well, producing an estimated net cash flow of $50,000 per month to Sunridge, follows our original plan to establish strong cash flows from our core assets with our ultimate goal to become a low cost heavy oil producer using our Six-Phase Oil Heating proprietary technology" states Dwayne Tyrkalo, President and CEO. "Natural gas is not only a great cash flow stream but a possible source for gas generated power (cogen) required in our overall business model".

*Barrels of Oil Equivalent ("BOE") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion ratio of 10 MCF:1bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.

ABOUT SUNRIDGE

Sunridge is a junior oil and gas exploration and development company with production operations in the Province of Alberta. The recent acquisition of the Six-Phase Oil Heating proprietary technology gives Sunridge an unprecedented opportunity to extract extensive potential reserves of heavy oil at shallow depths in the Alberta Oil Sands.

On behalf of the board,

Jerry Bella, Chief Financial Officer
