UPDATE: Adino Energy Announces Successful Completion of Five Wells in Coleman County, Texas

Adino Energy Completes Drilling of Low-Risk, Low-Cost Wells as Part of Five Well Drilling Program

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - Adino Energy Corporation (OTCQB: ADNY) (OTCBB: ADNY), an emerging oil and gas exploration and production company (E&P), is pleased to report that it has completed the drilling of five new wells on their Leonard and Brandt Leases in Coleman County, TX.

Felix Brandt #12, Leonard #4, Leonard #5, Leonard #6 and Leonard #7 are part of a five well drilling program funded by BlueRock Energy Capital, a leading capital partner for small oil and gas companies. The recently completed wells show strong inflow characteristics according to Shannon McAdams, Chief Financial Officer of Adino Energy. "Initial tests indicate the low-risk, low-cost wells appear capable of producing economic quantities of oil and natural gas," he said. Consistent with Adino's development strategy, the wells are all shallow verticals with good well control. "We expect them to produce more than 25,000 barrels for the program over the first five years of operation."

Felix Brandt #12, Leonard #4 and Leonard #6 have been successfully acidized according to McAdams. Adino plans to acidize the remaining two wells, Leonard #5 and Leonard #7, in the following weeks followed by fracking operations, as necessary. "We will provide updated and ongoing oil and natural gas production figures once flow rates and related data analysis from the wells have stabilized," said McAdams. "I expect that we'll have everything done in April and we can begin to establish IPs and decline rates from there."

Sonny Wooley, Chairman of Adino Energy Corporation, said the stepped-up drilling and production activity reflects the company's commitment to oil and natural gas exploration and production. "The successful completion of this program will mark a significant milestone for Adino. We are excited and intensely focused on driving revenues and creating value for our shareholders by developing our leases within the Permian Basin," he said. "I believe that our progress to date has only scratched the surface. This opportunity is an excellent example of our continued success and is a superior addition to Adino's portfolio."

In October 2011, Adino Energy received funding on their Leonard and Brandt Leases from BlueRock Energy Capital. "We expect to continue developing projects with BlueRock's backing for the foreseeable future," said Wooley. "As we continue to implement our drilling plan, we are committed to maintaining a high level of quality and dedication to every project and look forward to a successful year ahead."
