Norstra Energy Spuds First Ever Bakken Targeted Well in Lewis & Clark County, Montana; Pictures of Construction and Drilling to be Posted on Company Website

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, Sept. 25, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- NORSTRA ENERGY INC. WWW.NORSTRAENERGY.COM (Pink Sheets:NORX) ("Norstra" or the "Company"), a company poised to expand the excitement of the Bakken Shale oil deposit in Western North Dakota/ Eastern Montana towards the geologically promising Rocky Mountain front/ Montana Sweetgrass Arch, is pleased to announce the successful completion of setting 850' of surface casing for the company's first Bakken targeted well, the 13-11 Milford Colony.

During close supervision of the drilling, Glen Landry, CEO collected mud and cutting samples throughout the operation. A notable observation is that there were several shows of heavy crude oil in the Marias formations, which is not necessarily indicative of hydrocarbons in economic quantities, but is potentially indicative of oil migrating from other deeper accumulations, one hypothesis being seepage up faults with the originating formation being the Bakken.

Pictures of the progress of the 13-11 Milford Colony well be viewable on the company's website under the "Projects" tab this week.
