TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Feb. 10, 2011) - Shoal Point Energy Ltd. ("Shoal Point") (CNSX:SHP) has signed a Letter of Intent with Ptarmigan Energy Inc. of St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador, to acquire an option to explore the Green Point shale on Ptarmigan's Exploration License 1120, western Newfoundland offshore. The two parties will endeavour to reach a Definitive Agreement by March 4, 2011 which will allow Shoal Point to earn an 80% interest by drilling a Green Point test well on the property by December 31, 2012.

Under the terms of an Area of Mutual Interest agreement with Canadian Imperial Venture Corp. (CIVC) of St. John's, CIVC will have the right to participate in exploration activities in order to earn up to a 40% of Shoal Point's interest in the subject lands.

Shoal Point Energy and partners are currently drilling a well at Shoal Point, Port au Port Bay, to evaluate the Green Point shale on Shoal Point's Exploration License 1070, which lies south of, and contiguous with, Ptarmigan's EL 1120. Dragon Lance Management Corp., the operator of the 3K-39 well, has reported that the crew is returning to the site today after a brief break. Once onsite, the rig crew will be preparing the rig to drill the main section of the well in the Green Point shale.

"We are very pleased to be partnering with Ptarmigan on the continuing evaluation of the Green Point potential in western Newfoundland" said George Langdon, President and CEO of Shoal Point Energy Ltd., "and look forward to an exploration program that will be highly beneficial and rewarding to both parties".
