     Reserves Based on Forecast Prices and Costs as of December 31, 2013    

Kallisto has a diversified asset base with abundant near term drilling opportunities, including:

--  Cardium light oil at Minnehik - Buck Lake, Alberta; 
--  Elkton light oil and Basal Quartz liquids-rich gas at Crossfield,
--  Shaunavon crude oil at Chambery, Saskatchewan; and 
--  Doe Creek light oil at Valhalla, Alberta.

Kallisto is targeting to spend $6,000,000 - $8,000,000 on these drilling opportunities in 2014. To complete the drilling program, Kallisto will use internally generated cash flow but will also require additional sources of capital. Such additional capital may come through: joint venture or farm-out agreements; disposition of non-core infrastructure assets; additional equity financing; or corporate transactions. Management is in discussions with various parties on all these options and will finalize its 2014 drilling program and capital budget and report back to shareholders when additional capital sources have been secured.

The Company is rationalizing certain of its non-core assets in an effort to partially fund its 2014 drilling program:

--  Negotiations are in the final stages on the sale of an infrastructure
    asset in the Crossfield, Alberta area. The sale is expected to be
    completed by June 30, 2014; 
--  In January 2014, the Company engaged Sayer Energy Advisors to assist in
    the disposition of its Dawson oil transportation pipeline; and 
--  On March 3, 2014, the Company sold minor producing properties in the
    Crossfield, Alberta area for $350,000.

Kallisto regrets to announce that Mr. Ross Clark, Executive Vice-President of the Company, is retiring effective March 28, 2014. Ross joined Kallisto in 2008 and was instrumental in the turnaround of the Company, including the development of its Pembina, Alberta property. The board, management and staff wish to express their appreciation to Ross for his work and dedication to the Company and wish him well.

Kallisto also announces that it has filed its Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 and the accompanying Management's Discussion and Analysis. These documents are available for viewing under Kallisto's profile at

Kallisto is a Calgary-based junior resource company engaged in the acquisition, exploration, development and production of oil and natural gas, primarily in Alberta.
