NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES WIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES

Petrichor Energy Inc. (TSX VENTURE:PTP)(FRANKFURT:YQN) (Petrichor or the Company) announces

Convertible Debenture Financing and Marble Falls Property Acquisition Update:

Further to its news release dated April 3, 2013, the Company anticipates closing its previously announced Convertible Debenture financing in or about late June or early July of 2013, subject to satisfaction of certain conditions, including receipt of final acceptance from the TSX Venture Exchange (the "Exchange").

In addition, the Company announces the following revisions to its April 3, 2013 News Release: (a) the Convertible Debentures will bear interest at the rate of 12% per annum, payable quarterly on the last day of each calendar quarter, with the first payment due on the last day of the first calendar quarter following the date of issuance of the Convertible Debenture (instead of June 30, 2013, as previously announced); and (b) the Convertible Debentures will be secured by a first fixed charge on the Company's interest to be acquired in the Marble Falls leases in Texas, and on any future wells to be drilled on the Marble Falls leases (refer to the Company's News Release dated October 24, 2012. As well, the Company has not yet made any of the principal payments that were disclosed in that news release).

Completion of the Convertible Debenture financing will be subject to completing the Marble Falls acquisition and the Company plans to close the two transactions concurrently.

Both the Convertible Debenture financing and the Marble Falls acquisition remain subject to receipt of acceptance by the Exchange.

Stock Option Grant to Investor Relations Consultant:

The Company announces the grant, pursuant to its 10% Rolling Stock Option Plan, which was approved by shareholders on September 26, 2012 and accepted for filing by the Exchange on October 22, 2012, of options to an investor relations consultant for the purchase up to 42,500 common shares (instead of the 90,000 common shares announced in PTP News Release dated June 6, 2013), exercisable (subject to vesting as to 1/4 every three months over a 12 month period) in whole or in part on or before June 6, 2016, at a price of $0.35 per share.
