Shoal Point Energy Ltd. Finalizes Farmin Agreement With Ptarmigan Energy Inc. on Exploration Licence #1120

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 13, 2011) - Shoal Point Energy Ltd. ("Shoal Point") (CNSX:SHP) is pleased to announce that it has concluded a Farmin Agreement with Ptarmigan Energy Inc. ("PEI") of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, with respect to Exploration License #1120, western Newfoundland, as originally announced in a Letter of Intent on February 10, 2011. Under the terms of the Farmin Agreement, Shoal Point will have the right to earn into the "Shallow Rights" within a certain area of Exploration License #1120 ("Farmout Lands") by paying to PEI a total of $1,800,000, and by drilling a test well to assess the petroleum potential of the Green Point Formation on or before December 31, 2012. Once SPE has completed the earning requirements by making the aforementioned payments, and by drilling the test well, SPE will earn a 80% working interest in the "Shallow Rights" within the "Farmout Lands", with PEI retaining a 20% working interest therein.

"Shallow Rights", for the purpose of this agreement, are defined as all strata lying stratigraphically and structurally above the Ordovician carbonate platform, and include the Green Point Formation and other organic-rich rocks lying within the Cow Head Group, and equivalents, within the Humber Arm Allochthon.

"Farmout Lands" encompasses an area of approximately 67,285 acres (27,230 hectares) which forms a 7 kilometre wide band along the coastline defining the eastern border of Exploration License #1120 (see attached map).

Furthermore, pursuant to the terms of the Area of Mutual Interest Agreement with Canadian Imperial Venture Corp. (CIVC) of St. John's, CIVC has advised SPE that it has elected to participate to the maximum amount of 40% of the 80% earned interest that SPE will acquire. Therefore, with full participation, the working interest ownership in "Shallow Rights" after the drilling of the test well on the Farmout Lands will be SPE 48%, CIVC 32%, and PEI 20%.

The total area of Green Point shale rights held by the SPE/CIVC partnership is now approximately 217,285 acres, including some 60 km of continuous strike length along the coast between the south shore of Port au Port Bay and the Bay of Islands. Initial operations on EL #1120 will benefit from access to the coast via the community of Littleport, where it is anticipated the test well will be located.

"We are delighted to have concluded this agreement with Ptarmigan and look forward to planning the drilling program. Combined with forthcoming results from our recent drilling at Shoal Point 3k39, which is the first well in western Newfoundland designed to evaluate the Green Point shale, we believe west Newfoundland is showing promise to become a significant new oil producing area," said George Langdon, President of SPE.
