WellStar Energy Corp. Enters into $12,000,000 Letter of Intent to Acquire Operated Oil and Gas Assets in Alberta, Canada

Calgary, Alberta--(Newsfile Corp. - July 28, 2016) - WELLSTAR ENERGY CORP. (TSXV: WSE) (the "Company"), advises that the Company has entered into a Letter of Intent dated as of July 27, 2016 (the "LOI") in connection with the acquisition of certain oil & gas assets located in East Central Alberta (the "Assets") from an arm's length vendor (the "Acquisition"). Pursuant to the terms of the LOI, the Company will acquire the Assets in consideration for a net purchase price of $12,000,000 including aggregate cash payments of $8,000,000 and the issuance of $4,000,000 of common shares of the Company at a deemed price of $0.50 per share.

The Assets encompass 212,997 gross (147,576 net) acres of operated and non-operated working interests in East Central Alberta producing approximately 700 barrels of oil equivalent ("BOE") per day.

WellStar president and CEO Andrew H. Rees stated "This acquisition represents a clear path forward for the Company to excel through the current challenging resource price environment." He commented further that "The Assets, based on vendor supplied third party engineering, while not reflecting recent production gains, contain approximately 2.68 million BOE in total proved reserves with a net present value discounted at 10 percent of approximately $22.5 million. Additionally, WellStar's technical team believes there is significant upside to increase production from current levels."

The Company will further define the Assets in upcoming news releases.

The completion of the Acquisition is conditional upon, among other things, completion of due diligence, entering into a mutually acceptable definitive agreement by mid October, 2016; the Company securing suitable financing within the timeframe agreed to by the parties and obtaining all necessary regulatory approvals to the Acquisition, including the TSX Venture Exchange (the "TSX-V").

For further information please contact Andrew H. Rees at (403) 919-7900.

BOE presentation:

Barrel ("bbl") of oil equivalent ("boe") amounts may be misleading particularly if used in isolation. All boe conversions in this report are calculated using a conversion of six thousand cubic feet of natural gas to one equivalent barrel of oil (6 mcf=1 bbl) and is based on an energy conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the well head.
