Petrichor Elects to Participate in the Fracing of Horizontal at Darst Creek Field, Texas

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwire - April 25, 2012) - Petrichor Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTP)(FRANKFURT:YQN) reports it has notified the Operator that it has elected to participate in the fracing and completion of the Ranft 2H well (reference News Release February 3, 27, and March 23, 2012) scheduled for May 2, 2012. A two-stage 21,000 bbl. water frac has been designed at the request of the technical partners by Pro-STM. This treatment procedure is commonly used with great success in Austin Chalk exploration within the Giddings Field; northeast Burleson County, Texas.

The Ranft 2H well is the first of two test horizontal laterals in each of the two vertical wells, which were previously drilled on the Darst Creek field. The Ranft lease is centrally located in an area of the Darst Creek field, which has seen successful completion and production of new oil wells utilizing the horizontal drilling technology.
