Operational Update

We plan to commence site construction on our next well to be drilled, the 177(A1) well on Block 177.  This well is a shallow oil prospect targeting the Agua Grande and Sergi Formations with expected drilling costs of $0.7 million

We continue to work on the unitization agreement for our Caburé natural gas field (197(2) and 198(A1) wells).  The area to be unitized includes both of these wells but does not extend to our 197-1 discovered tight gas resource.  As provided for under Brazilian legislation, Alvopetro and the adjacent resource owner have now engaged the National Agency of Petroleum, Natural Gas and Biofuels of Brazil ("ANP") to arbitrate the terms of the unitization in order to determine operatorship of the unit and the working interest split to each respective party.  We are pleased that the ANP is engaged to bring resolution on these matters, at which point commercial development of the field can commence. 

Updated Corporate Presentation

Alvopetro's updated corporate presentation is available at: http://www.alvopetro.com/corporate-presentation.

Alvopetro Energy Ltd.'s vision is to be the premier independent exploration and production company in Brazil, maximizing shareholder value by applying innovation to underexploited opportunities. Our strategy is to focus on three core opportunities including lower risk development drilling on our mature fields, shallow conventional exploration, and the development of the significant hydrocarbon potential present in our deep Gomo tight-gas resource play. Our efforts in the near-term are concentrated on building a natural gas business by finalizing a unitization agreement and securing a gas sales contract.
