CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/05/12 -- NXT Energy Solutions Inc. ("NXT" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SFD)(OTCBB:NSFDF) announces an update on the status of its US $5.8 million SFD® aerial survey contract with Petroleos Mexicanos ("PEMEX"), the National Oil Company of Mexico, and the 4th largest exploration & production company in the world.

The project had an initial value of US $4.73 million, which was expanded to a total of US $ 5.8 million shortly after completion of the initial SFD® data acquisition operations. NXT has collected, as scheduled, its first US $2.87 million, which was due under the initial project scope of US $4.73 million. A second contract progress billing of US $1 million will be issued shortly, with payment due 30 days thereafter.

Data interpretation operations for the expanded project are well underway and NXT has delivered preliminary findings to PEMEX. NXT's final recommendations report is scheduled to occur in November, 2012, following which the final contract billing of US $1.9 million will be issued under the US $5.8 million project.

"We are pleased with how smoothly the project is progressing and are looking forward to presenting the final results to PEMEX when they visit our data interpretation center in the coming weeks", noted George Liszicasz, NXT's President and CEO. "With $4 million cash, no debt, and additional PEMEX contract billings of US $2.9 million expected to be received by year-end, we are well positioned to continue to expand our client base and execute our growth strategy."

NXT also advises that it will be holding its Annual and Special General Meeting for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2011 on Tuesday November 27, 2012 at 3 pm at the Petroleum Club in Calgary.
