Morumbi Preparing to Fracture Stimulate its New 12-33 Vertical Well on its McKinley, Alberta Light Oil Prospect

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Sept. 9, 2010) - Morumbi Oil & Gas Inc. (TSX VENTURE:MOC) ("Morumbi" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that it is in the process of moving the necessary completion equipment to its 12-33 well site this weekend. Morumbi plans call for a 25 ton gel water fracture stimulation of our new 12-33 well that will begin shortly with the view to enhancing near well bore permeability. 

Offset geological log analysis of the nearby original 12-33 horizontal well located 8 metres away from our new 12-33 vertical well supports the expectation that the planned fracture stimulation of the 12-33 well should improve our near well bore contact with the high quality light oil Cadotte reservoir (the Cadotte D Pool). The Company estimates it has remaining recoverable reserves of 400,000 to 500,000 barrels. The up dip location of the new 12-33 well is well positioned to access the prolific Cadotte D Pool upon completion.

Subsequent to the fracture stimulation the Company will perform swabbing and testing operations to determine the productive capability of the well prior to tying the well into our 4-33 well site where we have emulsion pipelines that will enable the Company to access nearby crude oil processing facilities. Morumbi anticipates releasing the results of our upcoming operation towards the end of next week.

Morumbi has made available on its website ( recently updated geological maps and an investor presentation outlining the prospects for our McKinley light oil prospect. The updated geological mapping reviews the results of the recently drilled new 12-33 vertical well and suggests that the Company is in a good position to access the prolific 37º API Mckinley Cadotte D pool from the most structurally high location penetrating the pool to date.
