CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Oct. 27, 2011) - Standard Exploration Ltd. (the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SDE), has entered into an arm's length farmin agreement in the Normandville area of Alberta on 1,920 acres of prospective lands.

Under the terms of the agreement, the test well will earn a 100% working interest in 640 acres and each well thereafter will earn and additional 640 acres.

The play is seismically supported and offsetting production rates range from 80 – 150 bbls a day of 37 degree API, sweet crude oil. Depending on the drilling results, Standard Exploration has identified 10 potential horizontal well locations on the farmin lands. Standard Exploration will act as operator on the farmin lands.
