Perisson Petroleum to List on the TSX Venture Exchange

Shares to Begin Trading Thursday, July 21, 2016

CALGARY, ALBERTA--(Marketwired - July 21, 2016) - Perisson Petroleum Corporation ("Perisson" or the "Company") (CSE:POG) is pleased to announce that the TSX Venture Exchange ("TSX-V") has approved Perisson's application to list its common shares on the TSX-V.

Effective Thursday, July 21, 2016, the Company's shares will commence trading on the TSX-V under the symbol "POG". Perisson will be classified as a Tier 1 Oil and Gas Issuer. Perisson will concurrently apply to delist its common shares from the Canadian Securities Exchange.

Gary Chen, Perisson's CEO and Chairman, said, "Advancing our listing to the TSX-V is a milestone achievement for Perisson that recognizes our ability to finance and advance the Company's development plan for the purchase and exploration of further oil and gas properties in the Western Canada Sedimentary Basin. This listing will provide the Company with the ability to reach a broader investor base and allow us to follow through on our previously announced significant financing activity with our strategic financing partners."

Operational Update

The Corporation is also pleased to announce that it has completed two significant steps in its Canadian and Colombian operations. In Colombia, the Corporation has been successful in reducing the Letter of Credit ("LOC") requirement related to our VMM-17 land block. The new LOC requirement is now USD $420,000, a reduction of over 60% from its former LOC requirement of over USD $1.1 million. Secondly, at our recently acquired Twinning asset, our operator, Forent Energy Ltd., has completed several operational enhancements to the fluid handling facility that have decreased our operating expenses while increasing our total water disposal capacity. We will continue to implement value added opportunities in the area to maximize the recovery of oil while maximizing our revenue stream.
