Photo Release -- Norstra Announces Investor Visit; Management Inspection

Norstra Energy stake

SOUTHLAKE, Texas, July 9, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Norstra WWW.NORSTRAENERGY.COM (OTCQB:NORX) would like to announce that an inspection was conducted by our Management at the drill site for the 13-11 Milford Colony well. Also, several prospective Investors flew to Montana during the last week of June and visited most of Norstra's operations, including the first staked well location (a photo accompanying this release is available at Photo credit: Darryl L. Flowers, Publisher, Fairfield Sun Times).

Norstra Energy's first staked well location

With respect to Management's most recent visit and inspection, it was noted that the first drill site has several strategic and economic advantages over more typical scenarios:

1. The survey stake is less than 500 feet off the paved highway near the Colony facilities. A gravel road connects the future pad to the highway. No roadwork will be necessary.

2. Three phase power is present within 200 feet of the northeast corner of the pad.

3. A year round stream with Colony water rights is present within 300 feet of the west side of the pad. There should be no need for a water truck or water hauling.

4. The pad site is nearly flat requiring little excavation other than clearing the surface material.

5. Gravel for the pad can be obtained within 2 miles for $2.00 per yard.

6. A nearby water well drilled by the Colony across the road encountered smelly gas at 500 feet. The well was abandoned as a water well, but the presence of smelly gas suggests gas potential. The connection for gas sales is only 3 miles away with the option to sell backwards through the line delivering gas to the Colony. Norstra would not need a pipeline at least initially.

Glen Landry, CEO, Norstra stated:

"All in all this is without a doubt the best drill location I have ever seen. We can expect to save over $200,000 in the drilling and completion of this well.

"Norstra is excited to start work right away after receipt of our permit. Norstra has already confirmed that the selected drilling contractor is available to start setting surface casing for the company in late July."

Norstra is correcting a typographical error in our permit request so the permit will be deferred for another 10 days. When the new advertising period of 10 days has passed, the permit will be requested.

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