CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwire - May 26, 2011) - Further to the press release of January 10, 2011, Petro-Reef ("the Company") (TSX VENTURE:PER) has received regulatory approval to tie-in a well at 8-7-56-26W4M (Petro-Reef 100% WI). The well was placed on stream May 1, 2011 and is producing as a gas well at a rate of 16.5e3m3/d (581MCF/d) from a new Lower Detrital Zone.

In addition, further to the press releases of February 2, 2011 and March 3, 2011, Petro-Reef licensed and drilled two (2) wells before spring break-up targeting the same prolific Upper Detrital oil zone. One of the wells is a twin well to a well abandoned at 00/10-7-56-26W4M. Petro-Reef set production casing and the well is currently being completed. The second well at 13-7-56-26W4M was perforated and tested at a daily rate of 55 barrels of oil per day. Initial results indicate partial restricted flow rates due to mud damage, and the well will be fracture stimulated. Petro-Reef has a 79% interest in these two (2) wells. The Company anticipates an on-stream date for these wells to be beginning to mid-July 2011.

Petro-Reef has also licensed a new well at 9-12-56-27W4M which is to be drilled in early Q3 and is planning to license a new well at 7-7-56-26W4M in the next week.
