Hemisphere Energy Announces Increased 2014 Drilling Plans

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Hemisphere Energy Corporation (TSX VENTURE:HME) ("Hemisphere" or the "Company") is pleased to announce its expanded capital expenditure plans for the remainder of 2014 as a result of the recently closed $10 million financing.

Hemisphere plans to drill up to 10 additional wells in the remainder of 2014, bringing the total for the year up to 13 wells. The Company will also optimize, workover and recomplete a number of existing wells, acquire 3D seismic to assist in defining future drilling locations, and continue to build its land holdings with growth potential.

With the positive results of Hemisphere's first Atlee Buffalo horizontal well achieving a 90 day production rate of approximately 90 boe/d (93% oil), the Company will focus on further development in the Atlee Buffalo area. Hemisphere anticipates a five well summer drilling program to commence in the first week of June. Another five wells are scheduled as part of a follow-up fall drilling program.

The increase in the 2014 capital budget is mainly devoted to additional drilling in order to add significant production, reserves and cash flow. The budget will be financed using cash flow from operations and the Company's existing credit facility of $10.5 million, which is currently undrawn.

A barrel of oil equivalent ("boe") may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation. A boe conversion ratio of 6 Mcf:1 Bbl is based on an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead.
