Odyssey Petroleum Enters Into Agreement for Financing the Recompletion of Twelve Non-Producing Wells

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - Nov. 4, 2009) - Odyssey Petroleum Corp. (TSX VENTURE:ODE)(FRANKFURT:YQN) (the "Company" or "ODE") announces that it has entered into an agreement with Southeastern Oil and Gas, LLC ("Southeastern"), which provides for an estimated US$4,000,000 expenditures to be made on twelve mutually selected non producing, closed in wells on ODE's properties in Mississippi. Under the terms of the contract, Southeastern has agreed to spend 100% of the funds necessary to re-enter, evaluate, and if warranted, do the necessary remedial work to recomplete and equip the wells for production. An estimated US$250,000 to $400,000 will be required per well in order to drill out plugs where in place, complete cementing remedial work, run cased hole logs, perforate, test, and equip the wells with new pumping units and production tubing.

Upon completion of each well to the tanks, Odyssey will retain a 12.5% overriding royalty interest (free of any cost) until such time that Southeastern has recouped 100% of its risked capital per well. After 100% payout, Odyssey may elect, at its own option, to convert the overriding royalty interest to 33 1/3% working interest in each well. Additionally, Southeastern will pay Odyssey US$25,000 upon the commencement of each well.

Odyssey welcomes this investment, as recompleting and equipping these non-producing wells may add substantially to Odyssey's income without expenditure of its own funds, thus allowing Odyssey to concentrate its efforts on raising new funds for new developmental drilling. Odyssey will remain operator of the wells and will help supervise operations. Southeastern intends to commence operations within the next 30 days, and commit to completing one well at least each ninety days.

Stock Options

The Company further announces that the exercise price of stock options granted September 23, 2009 to purchase a total of 4,000,000 common shares, as announced in a News Release dated September 23, 2009, has been increased to $0.10 per share, being the minimum exercise price allowed in accordance with polices of the TSX Venture Exchange, and not $0.05 per share as previously announced.
