AUSTIN, Texas (March 30, 2005) / BUSINESS WIRE/ - FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (OTCBB: FPPC-News) announced today that it has acquired approximately 3,235 acres in Floyd County Texas. FieldPoint has paid an average of $25.00 per acre for oil and gas leases with an average 20% royalty.

 

The Palo Duro shale gas play currently encompasses three counties: Briscoe, Floyd and Motley. It has been compared to the Barnett Shale in the Fort Worth Basin (Texas). There is one drilling rig currently active in Motley County (operated by Vintage Petroleum) NYSE:VPI and none operating in either Floyd or Briscoe County.

 

FieldPointŃs President and CEO, Ray Reaves, stated, ňWe are looking to the future, and this unconventional shale gas is a grassroots opportunity that could have a profound impact on this company.
