Petromanas updates Albanian exploration activities

CALGARY, June 6, 2013 /CNW/ - Petromanas Energy Inc. ("Petromanas", or the 
"Company") (TSXV: PMI) today provided an update on current and planned 
exploration initiatives onshore Albania. 
Albania Blocks 2-3 
The Shpirag-2 well continues to drill ahead in the target carbonate reservoir 
at a depth of approximately 5,500 metres. Petromanas intends to drill the well 
to a target depth of approximately 5,800 metres. 
The Company today also announced it has received notification that the 
Albanian government has approved construction permits for road and lease 
construction at the Molisht-1 drilling location and two other drilling 
locations located along the Shpirag structure in Blocks 2-3. Following the 
drilling of the Shpirag-2 well, the Company intends to mobilize the rig to the 
Molisht-1 location. Construction of the road and lease will commence in the 
next two weeks. 
"Securing construction permits for three additional drilling locations on 
Blocks 2-3 will help minimize rig downtime and related costs as we move 
between drilling locations," said Mr. Glenn McNamara, CEO of Petromanas. "In 
the near term our exploration program remains focused on multiple targets in 
Blocks 2-3." 
Albania Blocks A-B 
In December 2012, following the drilling and logging of the Juban-1 well, 
Petromanas completed its work commitments under the second of three phases 
outlined in the Production Sharing Contract covering Blocks A-B. 
Based on the information gathered during the logging operations at the Juban-1 
well, which indicated the presence of negligible quantities of hydrocarbons, 
the Company has elected to not enter the third exploration phase on Blocks 
A-B. The Company will relinquish the approximate 346,000 acre land position in 
Blocks A-B. Prior to relinquishing the Blocks, the Company expects to 
remediate the Juban drilling location at an anticipated cost of $295,000, 
which was fully provided for in the March 31, 2013 financial statements. In 
conjunction with the relinquishment, the Company will expense its carrying 
value of Blocks A-B, which is approximately $19 million.
