Strata-X Energy Ltd.: Positive Test at Blue Spruce-1 Well

DENVER, COLORADO and BRISBANE, QUEENSLAND and VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA--(Marketwired - Feb. 2, 2015) - The directors and management of Strata-X Energy Ltd. ("Strata-X" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SXE) (ASX:SXA) announce that further to its news release dated January 19, 2015, the completion testing of the Blue Spruce #1 well on the Illinois Oil Project is advancing. To date, the Company has perforated and swab tested the lower two of the four potential oil zones identified on logs and drill samples. Oil with gas was recovered at sufficient rates in the shallower of the two zones to allow the Company to move forward with installing permanent production facilities.(1)

Testing operations on the upper two oil zones including the primary zone of interest, the Aux Vases formation should occur over the next two weeks. The area has experienced a warmer than normal winter resulting in un-favorable ground conditions which have hampered operations. Given the current ground conditions, the construction of production facilities may be delayed until conditions improve.
