3MV Energy intends to focus its drilling and production efforts on its Fiske light oil discovery for 2013. As stated, in early 2013, the Company acquired 53 sections of land in the area which has solidified its asset base and creates potential for further growth and expansion through the drill bit. The Company will continue to explore financing opportunities, debt arrangements and joint ventures in 2013 to build on shareholder value. The Company will also continue its focus on cost reductions to optimize operational margins and cash flow.
The Company recently announced that Mr. Dallas Duce was named interim CEO. Mr. Duce is a long standing director and is the current majority shareholder of the Company with extensive oil and gas industry experience. He was the former owner of Duce Oil, a private oil and gas exploration and production company based in Estevan, Saskatchewan that was sold to Renegade Petroleum Ltd. in 2010. 3MV is pleased to have Mr. Duce join the management team.

Certain statements in this news release constitute forward-looking statements. The forward-looking statements contained in this document are based on certain key expectations and assumptions made by 3MV. Although 3MV believes that the expectations and assumptions on which the forward-looking statements are based are reasonable, undue reliance should not be placed on the forward-looking statements because 3MV can give no assurance that they will prove to be correct.
Since forward-looking statements address future events and conditions, by their very nature they involve inherent risks and uncertainties. Actual results could differ materially from those currently anticipated due to a number of factors and risks. These include, but are not limited to, the failure to obtain necessary regulatory approvals, risks associated with the oil and gas industry in general (e.g., operational risks in development, exploration and production; delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures; the uncertainty of reserve estimates; the uncertainty of estimates and projections relating to production, costs and expenses, and health, safety and environmental risks), commodity price and exchange rate fluctuations and uncertainties resulting from potential delays or changes in plans with respect to exploration or development projects or capital expenditures. Readers are cautioned that the foregoing list of factors is not exhaustive. Additional information on these and other factors that could affect 3MV's operations and financial results are included in reports on file with Canadian securities regulatory authorities and may be accessed through the SEDAR website (www.sedar.com).

Oil and Gas Disclosure
For the purpose of calculating unit costs, natural gas volumes have been converted to a barrel of oil equivalent ("BOE") using six thousand cubic feet equal to one barrel unless otherwise stated. A BOE conversion ratio of 6:1 is based upon an energy equivalency conversion method primarily applicable at the burner tip and does not represent a value equivalency at the wellhead. BOEs may be misleading, particularly if used in isolation.
Net present value of future net revenue does not represent fair market value of the reserves. There is no assurance that the forecast prices and cost assumptions will be attained and variances could be material.
This press release contains the terms "operating netbacks", "funds generated by operations", and "net debt", which do not have a standardized meaning prescribed by GAAP and therefore may not be comparable with the calculation of similar measures by other issuers. 3MV uses operating netbacks and funds generated by operations to analyze operating and financial performance. 3MV believes these benchmarks are key measures of profitability and overall sustainability for the Company. Both of these terms are commonly used in the oil and gas industry. Operating netbacks and funds generated by operations are not intended to represent operating profits nor should they be viewed as an alternative to cash flow provided by operating activities, net earnings (loss) or other measures of financial performance calculated in accordance with GAAP. Operating netbacks are determined by deducting royalties, operating costs and transportation from oil and gas revenue. Funds generated by operations are calculated as cash flows from operating activities excluding transaction costs less changes in non-cash working capital and share base payments.3MV uses net debt to assess the financial position and health of the Company. 3MV believes this benchmark is a key measure of financial leverage and displays a Company's ability to repay its debts when due. Net debt is calculated as current assets less current liabilities.
