Sundance Updates S.E. Saskatchewan First Nation Ochapowace and Muskowekwan Project Areas

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - Dec. 1, 2011) - Sundance Energy Corporation ("Sundance" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:SNY)(OTCQX:SNYXF) announces that its Lestock 5-3-27-15 W2M Test Well (the "5-3 Test Well") has commenced drilling operations. The 5-3 Test Well is located on a 15,533 acre contiguous permit covering the Muskowekwan First Nation lands. The 5-3 Test Well is scheduled to take approximately two weeks to drill to contract depth, core approximately 90 metres of prospective formations and log to total depth. Potential zones of interest are the Second White Specks, Souris Valley (Lodgepole), Bakken, Torquay and Birdbear. Sundance has a 100% interest in the 5-3 Test Well.

Sundance also announces that testing operations on its Ochapowace 6-5-18-3 W2M Well (the "6-5 Well"), which was recently drilled, logged, cored and cased, will commence as soon as completion services can be coordinated and mobilized. Testing will include fracing two or more of the four prospective zones identified in the 6-5 Well. The 6-5 Well is located on Sundance's 39,656 contiguous acre permit encompassing the Ochapowace First Nation lands in S.E. Saskatchewan. Formations targeted for evaluation and completion in the 6-5 Well are the Second White Specks, Watrous, Souris Valley and Bakken.

Jeff Standen, President and CEO of Sundance stated "We are very excited about both our Muskowekwan and Ochapowace exploration projects. Sundance has two very large contiguous blocks of land under permit all of which have been shot with 3D seismic. Sundance also has the advantage of being able to evaluate seven proprietary well logs from recent wells drilled on the Permit lands by Encanto Potash Corporation (TSX VENTURE:EPO). The 5-3 Test Well is up structure from one of the EPO wells that has interpreted bypassed pay in at least two formations. If successful, the 5-3 Test Well and the large interpreted closed structure that it is situated on, could result in a very significant discovery in a new exploration area."
