FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation To Complete Mercury Fee #1 in Eddy County, New Mexico

September 9, 2005


Plans to File Second Drilling Permit to Drill in Palo Duro Basin 


Austin, TX (Businesswire) Sept 9, 2005 FieldPoint Petroleum Corporation (OTCBB:FPPC) announced today that total drilling depth of the Mercury Fee#1 has been reached. On Thursday, September 8, 2005, the Company and its partners reviewed the well logs and determined that there is enough indication of Morrow gas sand to move forward with completion. The well logs show indications of the lower and middle Morrow formation with multiple zones, and we will be evaluating additional data.


The next step is to set pipe to a depth of approximately 12,738 feet and begin the completion process. The Company will provide additional details upon establishment of initial flow rates and will release follow-on information and updates on the well results, when and as appropriate. FieldPoint has a 10% working interest in the Mercury Fee #1  and will have to pay its share of the completion cost. We estimate total cost, net to FieldPoint, to be approximately $200,000.


FieldPoint President and CEO Ray D. Reaves stated, "We are excited to participate in the completion of this drilling program. If successful, it is anticipated that this could lead to other drilling projects. In addition, we continue to evaluate additional opportunities and are pursuing those that we believe will assist in accelerating our growth prospects and ultimately enhancing shareholder value. To this end, we plan to file our second drilling permit for the Palo Duro Basin ”
