Stratex Provides Update on Golden Valley

Stratex Currently Owns Leasehold Interests in 8,500 Gross and 6,300 Net Acres in Golden Valley, North Dakota

WATERTOWN, CT--(Marketwired - April 25, 2013) -  Stratex Oil & Gas Holdings, Inc. (OTCQB: STTX) ("Stratex") recently learned that several successful Red River formation wells have been drilled approximately 12 miles north of its leaseholds in Golden Valley. Whiting petroleum has drilled and/or permitted 10 additional wells in Golden Valley, North Dakota in the last several months. Additionally, Whiting Petroleum has applied to the North Dakota Industrial Commission to consider temporary spacing to develop two oil/gas pools discovered by previous wells in Golden Valley County, ND.

The two wells are the 44-24TFH Kjelstrup (SESE Section 24, T.142N., R.103W) and the Samuelson #23-32 (NESW of Section 32, T.142N., R.105W). Whiting has also applied to establish multiple spacing units in its acreage at Section 21, T.141N., R.104W in Golden Valley and authorize both horizontal and vertical wells at those locations.

The Northrup #1-25 (SWNW 25-136-106) Red River well, which is located on Stratex's leasehold in Golden Valley, North Dakota, produced 739,035 barrels of oil from the Red River formation before it was shut in by Amerada Hess Corp. in the 1980s.

Stratex is pleased that the Red River play is developing in Golden Valley, North Dakota and will continue to monitor the progression to maximize the value of its leasehold.
