Tuscany Announces Significant Sparky Acreage Acquisition, Macklin, Saskatchewan

CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwired) -- 04/30/14 -- Tuscany Energy Ltd. ("Tuscany") (TSX VENTURE: TUS) is pleased to announce that it has recently acquired a 100% interest in 567 acres adjacent to its Macklin heavy oil pool, comprised of a producing natural gas well and rights to the Sparky formation.

The significance of this acquisition is that it increases Tuscany's holdings in the Macklin area to a 100% interest in approximately 1,400 acres of prospective oil bearing Sparky lands.

The Sparky zone at Macklin is a potentially productive oil zone with bypassed wells exhibiting log characteristics, which Tuscany believes is analogous to recently developed pools situated approximately 12 miles to the west in Alberta. Logs from wells on the Macklin acreage indicate porosity and resistivity similar to vertical wells in Alberta, which led to the recent development of new oil pools by horizontal drilling.

The Sparky zone in wells at Macklin appears to correlate to the Sparky pools which have been recently drilled by Surge Energy Inc. (see Surge press release dated April 8, 2014), and may hold similar potential. In its press release Surge attributed significant original oil in place to its Sparky pools at Provost and Eyehill.

Tuscany believes that Surge presently has 16 horizontal wells on production in its Eyehill and Provost Sparky pools. According to public information several of the Surge wells had initial production rates of up to 200 barrels per day, and several wells which have been on stream for six months were still producing at rates in excess of 60 barrels per day in March, 2014.

To view a map showing the relationship between Tuscany's wells and the two analogous pools developed by Surge, as well as logs showing the similarity of the Sparky zone in the three areas, please click on or visit the following link http://media3.marketwire.com/docs/942504_maps.pdf.

Tuscany's primary focus remains the development of its heavy oil Dina pools in Macklin and Evesham, however development of this highly potential Sparky oil play, on which Tuscany believes it can drill up to 14 wells, is planned to commence in the second half of 2014.

Tuscany had been purchasing gas from the acquired gas well, and will now be able to supply its own gas for fuel to be used at its Macklin battery requirements.
