Sagres Finalizes Farmout Agreement with Canacol Energy on El Triumfo
Block in Colombia 
CALGARY, ALBERTA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Sagres Energy Inc.
(the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SGI) announced today that it has
finalized its farmout agreement with Canacol Energy Ltd. on the El
Triunfo Block, which is comprised of 25,205 gross acres in the
oil-rich Llanos Basin in the Department of Casanare, Colombia (the
"Block"). The Block contains an undeveloped discovery well, La
Cabana-1, that was drilled in 1984, on the flank of the 3D
seismically defined San Sebastian prospect, and tested 736 bopd with
water from the Mirador Formation and 338 bopd with no water from the
Gacheta Formation, however was not put on production due to
mechanical reasons. To date, there has been no commercial production
on the Block, but there are several undrilled prospects that have
been identified on 3D seismic. 
As previously announced Sagres entered into a purchase and sale
agreement and farmout agreement to acquire the right to earn a
participating interest in the Hydrocarbon Exploration and Production
Agreement (the "E&P Agreement") related to the Block. Pursuant to the
terms of the E&P Agreement, the participating interest holders are
required to drill two exploration wells on the Block. Sagres has the
right to earn an undivided 70% participating interest and assume
operatorship in the Block by paying 100% of the costs relating to the
first of the two wells, with the opportunity to earn an additional
12.5% participating interest after the drilling of the second well. 
Under the terms of the farmout agreement among Sagres and Canacol,
Canacol acquired 50% of Sagres' 70% net working interest in the Block
by agreeing to pay 50% of outstanding back costs related to the
Block, which is approximately US $2,432,380, and by paying its
pro-rata share of future costs related to the Block. In exchange for
the back cost payment, Sagres issued Canacol an interest-free secured
promissory note which will fall away upon the spudding of the first
well on the Block. Canacol also has an option to pick up an
additional 10% working interest from Sagres, up until the spudding of
the first well, by paying 20% of the total costs associated with
Phase 5 of the exploration program, which includes the drilling of
the first exploration well along with all related G&G and other
associated costs.

Sagres also announces that it has entered into a promissory note with
Aberdeen International Inc., pursuant to which Aberdeen has agreed to
lend the Company US$350,000. Sagres also entered into a second
promissory note with Forbes & Manhattan, Inc., pursuant to which
Forbes has agreed to lend the Company US$150,000. The Company intends
to use the proceeds of the promissory notes for general working
capital purposes. The principal under the promissory notes will incur
an interest rate of 8% per year and shall mature on October 18, 2013.
The promissory notes are secured against all of the assets of Sagres.
