CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - Nov. 25, 2014) - NXT Energy Solutions Inc. ("NXT Energy" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SFD)(OTCBB:NSFDF) advises that its interim financial and operating results for the three month and nine month periods ended September 30, 2014 ("Q3-2014") have been filed in Canada on SEDAR at www.sedar.com, and will be available in the USA on EDGAR at www.sec.gov/edgar, and on NXT's website at www.nxtenergy.com. All selected and referenced financial information noted below should be read in conjunction with the Company's unaudited interim consolidated financial statements and related management's discussion and analysis ("MD&A") for Q3-2014.

George Liszicasz, President and CEO of NXT Energy Solutions noted "Although we did not conduct survey contracts in the Q3 period, we continued to advance several high-impact project opportunities with National Oil Companies in Bolivia, Mexico, and the Pakistan / South Asia region. In recent months, Mexico has significantly advanced its extensive energy industry reform process, and PEMEX, the NOC of Mexico, is refocusing activities on the blocks that it retained under the 2014 "Round Zero" process. NXT Energy intends to now also pursue new survey contract opportunities in exploration blocks which will be offered to the international exploration industry and PEMEX, both onshore and offshore, under the initial "Round One" initiative which will commence in 2015."

The Company also notes that it recently was a presenter and exhibitor at the Next Generation Oil and Gas Africa Summit November 18-20, 2014 in Pretoria, South Africa, and is attending the "Annual Technical Conference" November 25-26, 2014 in Islamabad, Pakistan with the goal of continuing ongoing contract discussions with its client Pakistan Petroleum Ltd. (an NOC), and with a number of other potential new clients.

The Company is also pleased to advise that it has recently completed new patent application filings in the USA and plans to expand its intellectual property ("IP") protection to cover strategic international jurisdictions. George Liszicasz added "These patent filings are intended to enhance protection of our IP portfolio as well as allow us to broaden our disclosure to the exploration industry of the science underlying our proprietary Stress Field Detection ("SFD®") survey system."

NXT Energy will host a brief investor and media conference call on Wednesday December 3, 2014 at 2:10 pm MST (4:10 pm EST) to discuss the Q3 results and the status of these current business initiatives and recent developments.
