Norstra Energy Addresses Market Activity and Trading Suspension

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, July 1, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Norstra Energy Inc. (OTCQB:NORX) seeks to address recent stock promotional activity in regards to the Company.

It has come to the Company's attention that recently certain parties unrelated to the Company have been promoting our company's stock. We seek to clarify that that we have not engaged in any such activity, and have no connections to, or relationships with, anyone who would be engaging in the promotion of our stock. The promotional pieces that have been brought to our attention contain targets and projections that we feel are solely for promotional purposes and not based upon a realistic and comprehensive analysis of our company. Our operations are in the development stage. As an exploration stage enterprise, our focus must remain on developing our property interests to establish a commercially viable hydrocarbon resource. This is where our attention and funds will remain focused and we have not, and do not currently intend to, expend funds on stock promotional activity.

In addition, we are aware that the United States Securities and Exchange Commission has issued a temporary suspension for the trading of our company's securities, citing the adequacy and accuracy of our information. We are of the view that our disclosure documents accurately describe our assets, operations and proposed activities, and refer to our recently filed Form 10-K Annual Report for more detailed disclosure. We look forward to the resumption of trading on July 10, 2013 so that our shareholders will not continue to be disadvantaged by the trading suspension.

We strongly urge any prospective investors to obtain advice from a qualified investment professional prior to making any investment in our Company.
