Settlement of the Proceedings by the Centre quebecois du droit a l'environnement Relating to the Stratigraphic Survey Program on Anticosti Island

QUEBEC, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - June 30, 2014) - Pétrolia (TSX VENTURE:PEA) announces that the Quebec superior court has issued a judgment approving a settlement agreement between the parties in the claim by the Centre québecois du droit à l'environnement (CQDE) regarding the stratigraphic survey program to be conducted this summer on Anticosti Island. This judgment allows Anticosti Hydrocarbons L.P., of which Pétrolia Anticosti inc. is the operator, to proceed with the program this summer as planned.

Considering that the draft Ministerial Order of June 9, 2014 from the Ministry of Energy and Natural Resources properly regulates the stratigraphic surveys, that Pétrolia intends to comply with this Ministerial Order and that the Company acknowledges that a certificate of authorization is required to carry out future oil exploration wells, the CQDE has agreed to discontinue their motion for interlocutory injunction and confirmed that a settlement was reached. This settlement relates only to the stratigraphic survey program on Anticosti Island.
