Tuscany reduced its net debt from $8.1 million at the end of the third quarter of 2013, to $7.4 million at December 31, 2013.

The Company plans an increased heavy oil development program through 2014, with an active program of development wells at Macklin and Evesham, Saskatchewan as well as initial wells on two of the Company's additional low risk heavy oil prospects.

Tuscany plans to propose a two for one share split of the Company's common shares at its upcoming annual general meeting to be held on April 30, 2014.

The Company's annual report, MD&A and financial statements for the year ended December 31, 2013 have been filed on Tuscany's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com and are available on Tuscany's web site www.tuscanyenergy.com

Detailed reserve information is contained in Tuscany's Statement of Reserves Data and Other Oil and Gas Information for the year ended December 31, 2013, which is available on Tuscany's SEDAR profile at www.sedar.com. It should not be assumed that the estimates of net present value of future net revenue presented above represent the fair market value of the reserves, as there is no assurance that the forecast prices and costs assumptions contained therein will be attained and variances could be material

ADVISORY: This news release contains certain forward-looking information and statements within the meaning of applicable securities laws. The use of any of the words "expect", "anticipate", "continue", "estimate", "may", "will", "project", "should", "believe", "plans", "intends" and similar expressions are intended to identify forward-looking information or statements. In particular, but without limiting the forgoing, this news release contains forward-looking information and statements pertaining to the following: the volumes and estimated net present value of Tuscany's oil and gas reserves; and Tuscany's drilling plans.

The estimates of Tuscany's reserves and the net present value of the future net revenue attributable thereto provided herein are estimates only and there is no guarantee that the estimated reserves will be recovered or that the forecast prices and costs assumptions such estimates are based upon will be attained. In addition, forward-looking statements or information are based on a number of material factors, expectations or assumptions of Tuscany which have been used to develop such statements and information but which may prove to be incorrect. Although Tuscany believes that the expectations reflected in such forward-looking statements or information are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on forward- looking statements because Tuscany can give no assurance that such expectations will prove to be correct. In addition to other factors and assumptions which may be identified herein, assumptions have been made regarding, among other things: that Tuscany will continue to conduct its operations in a manner consistent with past operations; results from drilling and development activities; the continued and timely development of infrastructure in areas of new production; the accuracy of the estimates of Tuscany's reserve volumes; continued availability of debt and equity financing and cash flow to fund Tuscany's current and future plans and expenditures; the impact of increasing competition; the general stability of the economic and political environment in which Tuscany operates; the general continuance of current industry conditions; the timely receipt of any required regulatory approvals; the ability of Tuscany to obtain qualified staff, equipment and services in a timely and cost efficient manner; drilling results; the ability of the operator of the projects in which Tuscany has an interest in to operate the field in a safe, efficient and effective manner; the ability of Tuscany to obtain financing on acceptable terms; future commodity prices; currency, exchange and interest rates; regulatory framework regarding royalties, taxes and environmental matters in the jurisdictions in which Tuscany operates; and the ability of Tuscany to successfully market its oil and natural gas products.

The forward-looking information and statements included in this news release are not guarantees of future performance and should not be unduly relied upon. Such information and statement, including the assumptions made in respect thereof, involve known and unknown risks, uncertainties and other factors that may cause actual results or events to differ materially from those anticipated in such forward-looking information or statements including, without limitation: changes in commodity prices; changes in the demand for or supply of Tuscany's products; unanticipated operating results or production declines; changes in tax or environmental laws, royalty rates or other regulatory matters; changes in development plans of Tuscany or by third party operators of Tuscany's properties, increased debt levels or debt service requirements; inaccurate estimation of Tuscany's oil and gas reserve volumes; limited, unfavourable or a lack of access to capital markets; increased costs; a lack of adequate insurance coverage; the impact of competitors; and certain other risks detailed from time-to-time in Tuscany's public disclosure documents, (including, without limitation, those risks identified in this news release). Furthermore, the forward-looking statements contained in this news release are made as at the date of this news release and the Company does not undertake any obligation to update publicly or to revise any of the included forward-looking statements, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise, except as may be required by applicable securities laws.

Where amounts are expressed on a barrel of oil equivalent (BOE) basis, natural gas volumes have been converted to barrels of oil on the basis of six thousand cubic feet (mcf) per barrel (bbl). BOE figures may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A BOE conversion of six thousand cubic feet per barrel is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. Given that the value ratio based on the current price of crude oil as compared to natural gas is significantly different from the energy equivalency of 6 mcf: 1 bbl, using a conversion on a 6 mcf: 1 bbl basis may be misleading as an indication of value. References to oil in this discussion include crude oil and natural gas liquids (NGLs).

NEITHER THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE NOR ITS REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER (AS THAT TERM IS DEFINED IN THE POLICIES OF THE TSX VENTURE EXCHANGE) ACCEPTS RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ADEQUACY OR ACCURACY OF THIS RELEASE.

Too often with compelling new technologies market participants become overly enamored with that attractiveness of the technology and neglect underlying business drivers. This tendency, what some call the “newest shiny object syndrome,” is understandable given that virtually all of us are heavily engaged in technology. But it is also mistaken. Without concrete business cases driving its deployment, IoT, like many other technologies before it, will fade into obscurity.
